National Canadian Film Day (NCFD) to celebrate Indigenous Voices

 In Events

Reel Canada is pleased to announce that the ninth annual National Canadian Film Day (NCFD) to celebrate Indigenous Voices will take place coast to coast on Wednesday, April 20.

Here at the Clearview Public Library in the Stayner Community Arena Hall at 1 p.m. in the afternoon, we are presenting Angelique’s Isle.

Tickets are free (but required). Reserve your seat, loot bag and snack pack by calling 705-428-3595 or e-mailing

This movie is based on the novel Angelique Abandoned by James R. Stevens and the true story of 17-year-old Angelique Mott. Set in the midst of the 1845 mining boom on the shores of Lake Superior, newlywed Anishinaabe woman Angelique (played by Julia Jones) agrees to accompany her voyageur husband on a copper expedition. Left by the rest of the crew to guard a large discovery on a remote island, the couple must survive through a harsh winter with dwindling food supplies. Things then go from bad to worse.

Taking a lesson from the message of this film, we have decided that April is our Good Things Grow at Clearview month here at the library. To celebrate our re-opening on Tuesdays (starting April 5), we are introducing our Clearview Public Library Seed Libraries at the Creemore, New Lowell and Stayner Branches. Our resident Plant Doctor will be answering your gardening questions sourced from our GTG@C question boxes every Saturday at High Noon in cyberspace on our Facebook page.

Please look for Herald the Library Dragon as he emerges from his lair on Friday, April 22 to appear with us at the Earth Day Event in the Clearview EcoPark from noon to 6 p.m., where he will be discovering just how fast Jack’s Magic Beanstalk grows.

Have you remembered to order your Georgian Good Food Box (705-428-5537) by Wednesday, April 6 for delivery on Wednesday, April 20th?

March is definitely leaving like a lion as we weather yet another storm of freezing rain and temperatures but somewhere in the world, there are daffodils and apple blossoms blooming. It will be our turn soon!
