Saskatoon woman, 105, has polar bear wish come true in Churchill
At age 105, Pauline Page is still working on her bucket list, but she can now cross off a visit to see wild polar bears.
The Saskatoon woman, who travelled from her Saskatchewan home to the northern Manitoba town of Churchill, was on a tundra buggy for only a few minutes this past weekend when she saw what she wanted.
"Oh it was wonderful."
By the end of her tundra tour, she had spotted as many as 25 polar bears.
The owner of the tundra buggy even offered her the driver's seat at one point, but Page turned it down, saying she hasn't had her driver's licence in years.
She did, however, sit in the driver's seat just to see what it was like.
