Ward 11 News: Heritage Park Unveils Colonist Car

  • Share

Ward 11 official website
I had the honour of being part of the unveiling ceremony of the restored Colonist Car alongside Her Honour Lois Mitchell, Lt. Governor of Alberta, Dave Rodych, Chair of the Board of Heritage Park, Alida Visbach, President of Heritage Park and key donor, Joan Snyder, philanthropist and passionate Calgarian.
 
As a first generation Calgarian whose family fled from the oppression of communist Hungary in the late 1950’s, the addition of this new exibit resonates with me. Stories about the hard work, the setbacks and the triumphs experienced by the immigrants who travelled on these Colonist Cars and who literally risked it all to settle in our country are incredible. 
 
The Colonist Car plays an important part in preserving a key piece of our city’s rich history and I’m proud that we saw value in investing in its restoration.
