Bill Belsey knows his Canadiana. I mean, how many people could make the Twitter handle @Inukshuk work? I met Bill when we both were presenting at the Teacher2Teacher conference in Alberta. We had a great conversation there about First Nations and I’ve followed him on Twitter ever since.
In my Twitter stream today, I caught this…
It’s one of my favourite short stories. It’s based on the book by Roch Carrier and I only knew about the digital version on the NFB site. http://www.nfb.ca/film/sweater/
But, Bill pointed out there is a version available on YouTube.
If you’re a Canadiens fan, you need to enjoy this video over and over!
What was even cooler was that the back and forth led to even more interesting discussions.
I mean…would today’s student understand the reference to Eaton’s? Growing up, that certainly was a reality for me. Or Simpson’s? Or watching a radio?
Thanks so much for the original message, Bill. It started a wonderful chain of thoughts with me.
p.s. I always wondered what number was on that Maple Leafs’ jersey? 10? 7? 4? 27?
