I owe my wealth to Mother Nature. And I have been fortunate to work with geologists who are among the most environmentally conscious people you could ever meet, and to see so much of this magnificent country firsthand. I’ve relished the journey, crisscrossing Canada by plane, train, automobile, canoe, bike and on foot – from Cambridge Bay to Labrador, over mountains and across the prairies and through national parks, including Banff, the oldest of them all; some of the most spectacular, like Fundy; and the Cape Breton Highlands, a national treasure. These are the parts I really want to share with others. The Trail is an invaluable gift to all Canadians and will also help people from all over the world get to know Canada and its people. To those who have the means to contribute, I say, what better way to pay tribute to Canada, this beautiful country.
