North Pacific Cannery

We took a tour of the North Pacific Cannery today. Unfortunately, it rained the whole time but a hardy bunch were we. We donned our rain jackets and goloshes and traipsed around the facility. It is no longer an actively working cannery, but a good part of the operation has been left in place for us to imagine how things used to be. There were quarters for Chinese, Japanese-Canadians, First Peoples, and Europeans. Although the work was highly segregated, they worked as a fine oiled team. Quite interesting.
