Many people in Canada love to be outdoors.
Some like to paddle on B.C.’s lakes or on oceans nearby.
A favorite boat of outdoor people is the canoe.
The word “canoe” came from kenu in the Carib language,
and canoa from Spanish. These words mean “dugout”.
A dugout is a boat made from a log.
Another favorite boat is the kayak.
Kayak is a word from the Inuit people.
It means “man’s boat”.

TransLink – bus riders get a break
Adapted from The Vancouver Sun by Nila Gopaul
Beginning on October 5, 2015,
bus riders in Metro Vancouver
will pay single fares only
— $2.75 one-way for an adult.
This means you can travel
through two-zone and three-zone areas
and only pay for $2.75.
The price saving will also apply to HandyDart.
Adult passengers for SkyTrain and SeaBus
will still pay the same amount
– $4 for two-zone areas
and $5.50 for three-zone fares.
Did you know?
About 80 per cent of TransLink’s bus riders
travel one zone.
