Indigenous communities and police departments paddle together towards reconciliation during the annual Pulling Together Canoe Journey happening now in the waters of southern British Columbia. The nine-day paddle tests strength and builds bonds as the canoes are paddled from Victoria to Vancouver, started from Songhees on July 4 and ending in Vancouver Harbour on July 11. Oak Bay was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the journey as the group stopped for lunch and a rest today in McNeill Bay, before carrying on to Cadboro Bay for the night. The co-operative event between B.C. First Nations, government agencies and police was started in 2001 to enhance and improve relationships between First Nations and police by sharing conversation, culture, and cooperation through hundreds of kilometers of British Columbia's waterways.
