My Giant Canada150+ Chalk Labyrinth in shape of a Maple Leaf… – Jack Poole Plaza – Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territory

On this Canada Day 2017, I found my way to Jack Poole Plaza in Downtown Vancouver and the big empty space of interlocking bricks immediately north of the Olympic Cauldron which was lit up to mark Canada150.

I chalked out a Giant Maple Leaf which contained a Labyrinth.

It was enjoyed almost immediately by many.

It was also walked over, invisible to many.

This City, Vancouver, has added a “+” to their Canada150 observances of the year.

That “+” is to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples and their Unceded Coast Salish Territory upon which we as settlers/colonizers now occupy.

To many in Vancouver, Indigenous People and their Territory are now seen and acknowledged.

To many elsewhere in Canada, Indigenous People and their Territory remain invisible.
