The Ways of Water - Stories of the Grey Canal

Ribbons of Green Trails Society & the Museum of Vernon Present: The Ways of Water - Stories of the Grey Canal

The Grey Canal transformed land use and settlement in the North Okanagan. Now a network of multi-use trails, this early irrigation system brought “water from the hills” into the valley from 1914 to 1971 and once comprised the largest irrigation district in British Columbia.

Learn about the early development and evolution of the Grey Canal from those who experienced it first-hand. In a series of filmed interviews, film-makers Ingrid Neumann and Bruce Mol capture the knowledge and recollections of of Bob Davison, Peter Tassie, Tom Ouchi and Mas Sakakibara. Each tells a different part of the story of this feat of engineering, and how it changed life in the North Okanagan.
