What's that on the waterfront? Take a tour of the Canada C3
About 400 Canadians are taking a trip from coast to coast to coast on the Canada C3 for Canada's 150th anniversary of confederation in 2017.
The voyage is 150 days from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage. The idea is to bring Canadians together to share their ideas and experiences.
