For those wondering why there was no Byemoor-Endiang news last week, we were away in Ontario for 12 days.
Rosemary, I and our son Travis enjoyed visiting Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Toronto. In Toronto a highlight was taking in two Blue Jays games and hearing from friends and family back home that we were on TV in a crowd shot.
We also visited the CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, Casa Loma castle, Union Station and did the City and Harbour Tours. Toronto is a busy place.
Rosemary and I then headed to Ottawa where I attended the Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference. Once that was done we toured the Parliament buildings, sat in on Question Period and visited the Royal Canadian Mint, the National Art Gallery of Canada and the National War Memorial, took a boat down the Rideau Canal and toured the historic city. It was a great experience being in our nation’s capital on Canada’s 150th birthday year.
