A big part of Port Moody Centennial event plan centres around history and heritage. Our resident historian Al Sholund, who is a Freedom of the City recipient, has prepared a short but thorough history of our city. It seems a good time to give a history primer for the newcomers and a refresher for the old timers..
Even some of the most remote destinations celebrate Bastille Day. Cayenne (French pronunciation:) is the capital of French Guiana, an overseas region of France that enjoys the same customs, currency and holidays as its namesake. The city stands on a former island at the mouth of the Cayenne River on the Atlantic coast and Bastille Day activities are much the same here as they are in Europe, with rousing renditions of Le Marseillaise, libations, civic events, parades and fireworks..

When this occlusion is released, there is a brief burst of air, which has led linguists to categorize these sounds as “plosives.” Others, such as s, z, and v, are grouped together as “fricatives,” because they only partially obstruct the airway, creating friction in the vocal tract..
