    Danroy Curious about Wooden Canoes

    Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful little clip starring Kirk Wipper, Canada's official ambassador to canoeing. My French heritage in Canada stems back to the mid 1650's and I couldn't agree more with Kirk's comment about the integral role and symbol the canoe has always played in our history and identity. I loved the ending where Kirk sang one of the oldest French paddling songs known...I sang it as a child growing up in British Columbia and I hope to one day sing it to my grandchildren as we paddle down a river. After all "C'est l'aviron qui nous mène en haut"!
