What I dream of
my list is a celebration of what I love about Canada. The wide expanse, varied geography and the history that contributed to this country’s democratic freedoms.
My personal history includes a grandfather who spent the early 1920’s exploring the far north for the Geological Survey of Canada. He kept journals which my family could share in his experience. My mum travelled to follow in his footsteps meeting descendants who remembered my grandfather where they had preserved the cabin he built which he returned to annually.
I feel connected to the history of our north.
