Pictonians at Home and Abroad
By Rev. J. P. MacPhie M.A.
On October 17, 2011, the Nova Scotia government entered into an
agreement with the Federal Government to protect the Island as a
national park. The news followed an announcement made by the
Canadian federal government in May 2010 increasing the level of
protection the island receives by transferring governmental control
from the Canadian Coast Guard to Parks Canada. Sable Island became
Canada's 43rd National Park on June 20, 2013 with approval of
Mi'kmaq stakeholders. The park is home to hundreds of species of
flora and fauna including a breed of the unique Sable Island horse.
The park is also a breeding ground for marine life.

Zoe knows that Cape Breton has a lot
to offer tourists, so she decides to do something a little unusual
for this assignment. She dons an 18th century persona and spends a
day at the Fortress of Louisbourg in HISTORY LESSON. She puts
herself at the mercy of the head cook, falls slightly in love with a
blacksmith, and makes a new friend of Julie, her escort. After she
manages to sneak into a boy's costume and set off the cannon, she
departs for Firehouse Ironworks, a 21st century forge where she
bangs out her frustration and makes a fine looking hook.
