In the Comox Valley, Victoria Weekend—formerly called “Empire Days”—is celebrated in Cumberland with a parade, maypole dance, sporting events, and a street market. Cumberland and K’ómoks First Nation have worked together to re-name the event acknowledging the harm done by the colonial activities in the British Empire. This year’s event format is anyone’s guess, but rest assured, Cumberland will find a way to rise to the occasion.
