Hitting the Road

Trail's End will be broadcasting live from Deh Gah School in Fort Providence this afternoon.


Four years ago I got my first glimpse of the ferry. Late October, denim jacket, Ontario plates, no idea how to get to Yellowknife in the snow. A burly man rapped on the window, asking "what the hell are you doing?" as I rolled it down the window (enthusiastically) whenever we encountered bison, watching that I didn't slide off the road. I'm still grateful.He and his wife led the way for the next six hours; pulling over to offer food from their van, flashing their emergency lights and pointing out either side window.

Today, we say goodbye to the Mighty Merv, and welcome the Deh Cho Bridge. Join Peter Hope and I from 3 to 6pm on CBC North Radio One. If you're in Fort Providence, come tell us your own story. We'd love to hear it.
