Do you know what an Inukshuk is?  Do you know who the Group of Seven was?  Do you know anything about Emily Carr? Robert Bateman? Robert Gagen? (hey I recognize that last name!) Paul Peel?

Coming up on Friday, it’s Canada Day, our holiday to commemorate Confederation, when Canada became a country.
