Pavilion at Cave and Basin in Banff


While in Banff National Park, enjoying the amazing vistas of Canada's jewel of public parks, it is not difficult to lose oneself completely.  Pristine glacial fed rivers, forests full of wilderness, and the serene sense of peace not to mention the mind opening scent of that many pine trees - Banff is truly Canada's gift to the future. Many of us head to Banff for a sense of healing, for a hike, to experience the beauty.

Banff is just over 100 years old.  Recalling the past, the Banff experience is also an opportunity to recall Canada's first national internment operation of 1914-1920.  On Thursday, June 20, 2013, Parks Canada Agency, National Historical Recognition Project (Banff) is hosting an opening event for a pavilion at the Cave and Basin National Historic Site.  Project Lead Steve Malins has graciously extended the invitation to ukrainiancalgary readers to join in the opening events.  Thanks to the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association for helping to extend the invitation far and wide.
