Wandering Around Out There With A Canoe On My Head

This week I share with you  a story about how a group of Hamilton Police who regularly introduce youths to the Canadian wilderness. There are a few things I like about this. First, I like hearing about a locals doing good in it’s community (I’m from Hamilton). I also like hearing about people trying to enrich young lives. Specifically though, I’ve always liked the thought of introducing people to the beauty of the outdoors, and the quintessential Canadian experience of canoe camping. In this case, officers and youth workers take a group of teenagers out to experience Algonquin as part of their Streets to Wilderness Algonquin Mentoring Program for Youth (SWAMPY).  This year’s kids were new Canadians participating in the city’s Settlement and Integration Services Organization (SISO). As said in the article, tell me what is more Canadian than a canoe trip? Keep it up guys.
