War memorials info sought

Heritage BC is seeking public input for a war memorials and monuments project commemorating Canada’s contributions

Heritage BC is seeking public input for a war memorials and monuments project commemorating Canada’s contribution in the two World Wars from a B.C. perspective.

“Heritage BC is a charitable, non-profit supporting heritage conservation in British Columbia through education, awareness, training and funding of heritage conservation projects,” Kathryn Molloy, executive director, said. “Our goal is to engage British Columbians of all ages to identify war monuments and memorials and help us build a wonderful education tool of an interactive online map.”

The map will include the name, location, descriptions, photographs, videos, and other information about the World War monuments and memorials in communities across British Columbia.

War monuments and memorials in B.C. range from community cenotaphs, to more modest commemorative plaques. In some communities memorials take the form of park gates or whole buildings.

Submissions to the project can be made through Heritage BC’s website until 5 p.m. March 1, 2016.
