We followed Mike Ranta and his trusty pilot dog Spitzi on their journey from Vancouver to Cape Breton, some 8000 kms in 200 days canoeing and portaging… first person ever to do this.

We are hosting Mike, Spitzi and their amazing canoe, here in Almonte at the Legion from 3 to 5 pm, Thursday November 10th.

Mike’s epic paddle has been in support of Legions and Veteran’s health programs.

Here is a CBC article about his completion of the trip:
