    Dear Canadians,
    Hello Canadians, Keep staying safe over March break holidays. As much as you want to "break" the rules by not wearing your mask around others, please help all of us by mainting social distancing and wearing that mask in public. Lives depend on it! Have fun with your family during your vacay and stay safe! A fellow Canadian, D.L.

    Dear Canadians,
    So many new words! Covid 19, who knew that overnight our world was rocked and set upside down. There has been the downside of human nature ie: anger, rage, clashing of boundaries which can create a kind of friction that seems un-resolvable. The upside, there is so much! I have never had so many free McDonalds coffees at the drive through. We can smile with our eyebrows and say many other kind things! Mental health is on the agenda for work, home and families in a new and tender way. I have felt and found others to be genuinely open about hope for this Pandemic to end, but finding strength to persevere. Thankful for good people who are willing to sacrifice some personal rights for the good of the greater population.

    Dear Canadians,
    I hope that the rollout of the vaccine will be successful in putting an end to this pandemic and will be equitable, allowing all Canadians and people of the world timely access. Thank you to all of the scientists and health professionals who have worked so tirelessly to get us here.

    Dear Canadians,
    i want to share with you a cool skill i learned and how i started. i started drumming in 2019 in august a few days after my birthday. i had watched my dad play the drums and i had listened to a few songs that seemed easy to play so tried on my dad's electric drum kit and turns out it was super fun. my and my dad started playing music together. he would play the guitar and i would play the drums. we played alot of song and even this last january we went to play on his acoustic drum kit which was on this loft at the place he works. and we have gone every weekend scince then. ive started to play tons of songs now and i feel like after a year and a half of playing i feel like i have gotten really good but still not the best. sincerely, joey.

    Dear Canadians,
    Dear my Fellow Canadians, Dear Canadians, my name is Ewan, and this is my best quarantine moment during the pandemic. My best moment in quarantine was kind of relaxing because we didn’t have to go to school so we could just stay home and chill. But the thing I did was better, would wear my really comfy pjs sitting down in my chair with a blanket watching neflix but im actually pretty sure other kids did the same but personally that’s my best moment. And I kind of wish we still were in lockdown because I don’t really like school. And that’s my best quarantine moment bye.

    Dear Canadians,
    I would like to share with you my favorite quarantine moment. My favorite quarantine moment is going on bike rides will my friend, Liam. We would go all the way from his house to my house. So the one time I went down this hill by Unisus and it has lot of rocks my bike hit a rock and I went over my handlebars and hit my knee on the rock and my knee gushed blood. Even though I hurt my knee it was still a good memory of quarantine. Sincerely Landen Boerboom

    Dear Canadians,
    My name is Anthony and I'm going to tell you about my summer. When Covid came, me and my friend Ty would ride our bikes to the beach. When we got there we would swim for about 5-10 minutes then we would bike to Trout Creek. When we got to Trout Creek we would play basketball for about 25-30 minutes then we would bike back to our house and play video games.The best part of my summer was seeing my friends. From Anthony

    Dear Canadians,
    I would like to share with you the most amazing Quarantine moment. The most bizarre thing that happened was when I got a hamster. I was looking for a male hamster, so we checked PetSmart and Total Pet, neither had males, so I settled with a female hamster. Hazel is a gray Teddy Bear hamster. She is fluffy and shy. I indeed have had a gerbil before, Peanut, but he died so that is the entire reason I got Hazel. I named Hazel after my favourite squirrel in Animal Crossing. Having a hamster will be a moment I will remember forever. Sincerely, Kate

    Dear Canadians,
    I would like to share what I want the future to bring. I want the future to be beautiful and happy, with people being kind to each other and full of food and clean water. I also want no more pollution in the oceans and waters, and everyone lived happy and satisfied. This is what I am wanting the future to bring . By Jessie

    Dear Canadians,
    I am going to tell you about my favourite quarantine moment. Around the end of July, my cousin came down from Grande Prairie for a week. On the fifth day; me, my cousin Hayden, my auntie Trina, and my mom, went to Kelowna to go to the mall. We left at 1pm and made sure we had extra masks and sanitizer. Once we got there, we split up. Our moms went together, and me and my cousin went together. We started at American Eagle and worked our way around the mall. We mostly just went to clothing stores. We went to some non-clothing stores and found our mommy’s. All four of us had spent all our cash. After we packed everything up in the car, we stopped at a Boston Pizza for supper. We listened to 80’s music on the way home then did a fashion show for the boys. That day was by far the best during quarantine. I did not worry about COVID-19 once.
