Cheapie Monday – Wreck of the Valencia


The Wreck of the Valencia
FREE – 7:30pm
Alma VanDusen & Peter Kaye Rooms, Lower Level @ VPL Central Library 350 West Georgia

What is the Valencia? Well if you don’t remember from history class in school, it’s probably one of the more prolific maritime disasters in Canadian history. Parks Canada as part of their speakers series will be holding an event at the main library downtown at 7:30pm.

Hosted by Silva Johansson you’re invited to “Relive the drama of the tragic 1906 shipwreck that led to the creation of the West Coast trail”.

I remember only touching on it briefly in school but if you’re like me and like discovering more about the historic things that have happened in the area you’ll probably enjoy it quite a bit.

You can read up a little more about the SS Valencia at HistoryLink.
