My support for the Trail goes back to childhood memories of England. We bicycled, paddled, walked, and were always close to nature. I came to Canada in 1948 to study at McGill. We have a summer home in Northern Ontario that is beautiful with enormous trees and trails on the property. My experiences there and elsewhere in Canada have instilled in me a desire to always keep close to nature. I am happy to support programs which help to preserve wildlife and the countryside and encourage Canadians to do the same. It’s wonderful that so many Canadians have stepped up to give their time, expertise and enthusiasm and to make such a great commitment. It’s the Canadian way.
