Our family is proud to be Canadian; we have roots in PEI and have lived in Alberta and Ontario. Over the years, with our children, we have driven every mile of the Trans-Canada Highway and experienced Canada’s natural diversity. We’ve visited such beautiful places as Loon Lake, north of Saskatoon, seen the polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba, and spent summers hiking in Ontario’s parks and Alberta’s mountains, and camping on beaches from Tofino on Vancouver Island’s west coast to Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula and PEI’s red-sand shores. The Trans Canada Trail affords Canadians ways to experience our country’s enormous scale and diversity, including its geography, climates and people, just like the Trans- Canada Highway did for our family, and what the CPR did in its generation. By connecting these and other special places together, the Trail is a great symbol of Canada’s unity, and the extraordinary Canadian journey that makes us all proud.
