It is becoming a team tradition to run a special livery for our home race, and this year is no exception. After the rather dark livery we ran last year, this year’s livery a lot more colorful. It celebrates various anniversaries of significance in Canada happening this year. The most eye catching design element are the dynamic shapes of colour that combine to create a background revealing a maple leaf, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Multiculturalism Policy.
The nose art celebrates the 150th anniversary of British Columbia joining the Confederation as Canada’s sixth province. 2021 also marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin, one of Canada’s greatest contributions to modern medical history.
Instead of the usual drivers’ names, the livery features the names of Viola Desmond, who challenged racial segregation 75 years ago and Agnes Campbell Macphail, who was elected as the first female Member of Parliament 100 years ago.
