Porter Shantz waves to fellow students as Mayor Mike Bradley helps raise the Franco-Ontarian flag on Sarnia’s waterfront during Franco-Ontarian Day on Sept. 25. Hundreds including students and teachers from five French-language schools and immersion programs came together for the event, said Tanya Tamilio, left, president of the Centre communautaire francophone Sarnia-Lambton. “When you look at the history of Sarnia, the first settlers, the first families were French-speaking families. That’s huge,” she said. Shantz and fellow school prime minster Daniel Tolooe’i represented Saint-Thomas-d’Aquin and Les Rapides schools, respectively. Sarnia-Lambton is home to about 5,300 francophone residents. Journal Photo
