#PaddleTheDon with Kathleen Wynne

This past weekend I was invited to participate in the annual Manulife Paddle The Don event in Toronto.

At the heart of Canada’s largest urban region is the Don River. Once a year, Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) provides a unique opportunity for people to paddle the Don RiverĀ from Ernest Thompson Seton Park to the mouth at the Keating Channel.

Manulife Paddle the Don is all about having fun, enjoying nature, and celebrating the Don River watershed. The trip also provides a time for reflection on all the benefits we derive from the natural environment – air, water, resources, recreation, and spiritual renewal – that are integral to the health and function of the city and the surrounding region.

It was a beautiful day to celebrate the natural wonder and environment that is the Don River and it’s surrounding parks.

I also had the opportunity to chat with Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne.
