Sailing in Love

Topanga.JPGCassandra Bleuthner and John Schulman knew each just over a year before they embarked on a crazy, wonderful adventure -- sailing down the Eastern coast of the Atlantic from Montreal to Puerto Rico.  Just back in the city, still living on their boat, Cassandra and John spoke with Pierre Landry about life..and love at sea.

Vanier students explore Quebec's North Shore

Vanier students face the spring floes.jpgRoute 138 runs all along the northern shore of the St Lawrence - until it stops at the community of Kegaska.
It never reaches the border of Quebec and Labrador, but it does cover a vast region.

Many of us don't know much about it.
But a group of students from Vanier College in Montreal headed out to explore the North Shore recently. The 1500-kilometre trip was actually part of a course.

Vanier group waiting for Tadoussac ferry.jpgThe students got back this week and we've got two of the travellers with us this morning. Myriam Mansour is the geography teacher that accompanied the students. Alexandra Papathanasopoulos is one of the Vanier College students who took that course on the north. They talk about their adventures with Sonali Karnick.

You can read their blog and see some photos here.
