Pier 21-Canada's Past and Present
2015/06/26 - Written by Rita Simonetta
Canada is a nation of immigrants, built on the hopes, dreams and sacrifices of the waves of newcomers who came to pursue a better life, and in that process, changed the landscape of this country. Their first stop post was Halifax’s historic Pier 21, a gateway to a new future. Between 1928 and 1971, 1.5 millions of Canadians between 1928 and 1971 passed through the port at Pier 21, accounting for the fact that one in five Canadians can trace their history back to the fabled landmark. To celebrate this part of history, The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 held its official reopening on June 25. The ceremonies included the unveiling of the new Canadian Immigration Hall as well as the reopening of Rudolph P. Bratty Hall, both of which were part of a $30 million expansion project. Canadian Immigration Hall is a state of the art facility that explores the broader story of immigration to Canada and highlights the many contributions from newcomers. The Rudolph P. Bratty Hall, named for an Italian immigrant who arrived at Pier 21 from Friuli in 1951 who went on to become one of the most successful real estate developers in Toronto, features interactive exhibits that place visitors back in time. The unveiling ceremony included some of Canada’s top government officials such as Julian Fantino, Associate Minister of National Defence and Peter MacKay, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, and performers such as singer Michael Ciufo. With its reopening complete just in time for Canada Day on July 1, the Museum will host a Multicultural Fair with free admission from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. One a gateway for waves of newcomers, the Museum is now committed to making sure that this story of Canada’s past will be told to present and future generations.

In 1990, I traveled with my two sons and my wife to Cirella, Reggio Calabria. I had the privilege to enter the lives of the people of Cirella and to photograph them as they went about in their daily activities, from the making of tomato sauce... to the religious festivities of San Rocco. After all, I was my fathers' son. [ more ]
