Grâce à mon projet, j'ai mieux compris l'histoire de la communauté des Métis de Saint-Laurent. J'ai pu entre autres comparer la vie des habitants d'hier à aujourd'hui.




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 I learned is probably what big a difference there is between life in st.Laurent in the mid 1900s to now. So much has changed from schools not separating girls and boys to most people having running water at their house. But I have to say that everything I learned while doing this project was interesting.

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

An important lesson I learned from my project is how much you can achieve when you work together. St.Laurent did not get electricity until 1949 so until then the whole family had to pitch in, melting snow, and chopping wood. When they worked together they were able to live wonderful lives and were warm and well fed.

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

I think that that my life is a lot different from the lives of people who lived in St.Laurent in the early to mid 1900s because my house has electricity and my family doesn’t have 12 kids. I think my life has hardly any differences to those growing up in St.Laurent today other than the fact that most people who live in St.Laurent have to drive into Winnipeg to get groceries and go to doctors appointments.
