L'Explosion de Halifax

My project explains the Halifax explosion and the destruction that it left the city in after that horrible day in December.

Quelle est la chose la plus intéressante ou surprenante que tu as appris en préparant ton projet et en effectuant ta recherche ?

The most interesting thing that I learned about my project is that even though the explosion left halifax in ruins, the residents living there were still able to rebuild Halifax to be the beautiful city that it is today. I was surprised that there was so much destruction and many obstacles but yet they worked together to restore the city.

Quelles sont les informations les plus importantes à retenir de ta recherche que tu aimerais partager avec les autres Canadiens ?

I have learned that when catastrophes happen, it is important that the country and also neighbouring countries help one another through the tough times. This helps build friendly relationships between countries and cities.

Peux-tu comparer ta vie aujourd'hui avec celle de celui ou ceux qui sont présentés dans ton projet ?

If we had an explosion in this century we would have all the fancy equipment like long fire hoses and fire hydrants with water ready to be used. In 1917, they relied on horses and wagons and the emergency personnel did not have all the equipment that we have today.
