    Oh, I have to see this! SO glad to see it’s coming to Montreal!

      Kerry – give yourself lots of time, it is overwhelming and hard to take it all in. Helps if you can go for lunch (or a break) and come back after your eyes – and brain – have had a rest.

    Oh, it’s incredible! It’s not coming to Vancouver is it? I can’t make it to Victoria. Sigh. Thanks for showing Simon Fraser in detail though. Mr. Canoe-head!

      Louisa – think the next stop is Winnipeg, it has had an excellent response in Victoria. I talked to a couple who had come from Wash. state just to see it.

      Heather – it is too much to take in in one viewing. Maybe go to lunch and then go back. They want a donation so ask them if you can return.

        Thanks for the tip, Jean. I’m bringing the qiviut with me, hope I have a chance to drop it off to you.

        Heather – hope I’ll be here if you have the time to come.
