Ships in the harbour

This weekend was good viewing for boat buffs. Canadian military vessels as well as Canadian Coast Guard icebreakers were tied up at the wharf in St. John's harbour.

New footings

The first footings are poured for the condo project that will eventually take over the old CBC Building on Duckworth Street in downtown St. John's.


Tree trimming

You might have noticed a lot of this around St. John's. Trees are being trimmed across the city. This took place last week in front of Bishop Feild.


Conne River stories

Conne River is Newfoundland’s only aboriginal reserve.

While we may not hear about it much in the news, something remarkable is happening in this community in Bay D’Espoir.

For decades, people in Conne River were forced to suppress their culture because of colonial racist policies.

But now the people are bringing their culture, tradition and language back to life.

At the centre of this revival are the children.

Here are pictures and audio stories from the CBC’s Beth Macdonell’s visit to Conne River.
