Historic Canada 150 Mural comes to Fort St. John


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A mural that will be travelling across Canada to celebrate the 150th Birthday will have a Fort St. John feel to it.

Over a 2 year span, the goal is to create a mural including all provinces and territories, over 80,000 paintings and 150 individual murals. If the mural was to be connected, it would be over 365 meters wide (4 football fields) and 2.5 meters high (8 feet).

Each province and territory will have only 5-15 communities represented. Fort St. John is one of the few communities selected in B.C.
