I’ve built them. I’ve lovingly restored them. And I’ve always paddled them.
Whether it’s portaging an 18 foot Kevlar on a canoe tripping adventure into the heart of the wilderness, or a solo paddle in my 12 foot wood/canvas in front of my house – the canoe is my connection to the land and water of this great country.
I am pleased to be part of promoting Canada’s Paddling Culture – a program of Ontario Tourism that celebrates the canoe as a symbol that connects us all. And one of the best ways to climb aboard is to watch The Canoe a film by Goh Iromoto.
The film underscores the strength of the canoe and the human spirit and how the canoe can be a vessel for creating deep and meaningful connections. This film is a true reflection of what Canadian canoe culture looks like today.
