Mosaic Canada 150 Mural on display at City Hall

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – City Hall in Fort St. John is currently displaying the Mosaic Canada 150 Mural before the official unveiling that will take place on on July 1, 2017 in Centennial Park.

“The City of Fort St. John would like to thank all those who came out to paint tiles in the Mosaic 150 Mural workshops. The community efforts have created a mural representing a flatbed train car with images that are unique to our city.”

The city’s mural will also celebrate the 75th birthday of the Alaska Highway in 2017. When completed, this mural will be connected to a large virtual train comprised of cars made by 150 other Canadian communities that will make its way across our nation online.

Progress of the train can be followed on the Canada 150 website: http://canada150mosaic.com/#1

Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman says the chance to participate in the project was an honour.

“This was such an honour for our community to be able to participate in this national project. We are thrilled with the community contributions that really make a statement about who we are in our region.”

Fort St. John was 1 of 15 communities in British Columbia that got to be a part of this country wide project.
