TRIP FOR TOLERANCE
March 14-19, 2004
Our goal was to gather students and faculty from the Vanier community to participate in a tour in multi-ethnic understanding. Highlights included a visit to Ellis Island and Ground Zero in New York City and then a trip to Washington, DC for a tour of the capitol and visits to the Smithsonian, the Islamic Center, the Arab-American Institute, B'nai B'rith and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
This event was captured in video and photos by many of the participants, whose work are featured in this web page. Apart from viewing some of the many photos below, we also invite you to view a 3 minute video clip aired on CFCF News of April 9, 2004 which chronicled some of the trips more memorable moments. (High-speed Internet recommended to view this clip.)
