Joined by fellow Canadian rock acts Sum 41, Hollerado and Indian Handcrafts, the mostly young adult crowd danced and moshed to some of their biggest hits.
Before the stars hit the stage, students from the Blueberry River First Nations got the chance to meet Billy Talent, as a reward for improving in their studies. School counsellor Patsy Greyeyes explains that last year the youth were transferred to remote Prespatou School, where they performed poorly, and only five students out of the 25 grade 10’s and up earned graduation credits.
However, the Blueberry band along with School District 60 and the Aboriginal Education Centre developed an education plan that recognized the challenges facing Aboriginal students that have to adjust to being in both their traditional and modern world. Since then, all of the students earned some credits towards their graduation in the first term of this year and were rewarded with the meet and greet.
