In honour and celebration of Canada’s 150th, the Qualicum Beach Historical and Museum Society wanted to share an inspiring story about how an individual in Canada can go above and beyond as a citizen and as a community builder. With the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th funding, awarded to us by the Parksville-Qualicum Foundation, we had a video produced about our town’s Citizen of the Year for 2016, Mr. Graham Beard. The video presents the fascinating story of Graham Beard and his lifelong study of the paleontology of Vancouver Island.
