Harriet Tubman took extraordinary risks to bring enslaved blacks to freedom in Canada. She made almost a dozen trips and successfully delivered up to 70 people to freedom in the Niagara Region. Currently there is no plaque at the original Whirlpool Suspension Bridge in Niagara Falls, the only documented site where she crossed. Harriet Tubman is a hero and important role model. The students of Harriet Tubman Public School in St. Catharines feel it is of the utmost importance to have a plaque to share and preserve her story for future generations.
