Blazing an old Trail

A group from Bear River has set out to re-establish a traditional Mi’kmaw canoe route from Lake Joli to Keji.

Eleven paddlers, eight from Bear River plus three staff from the Department of Environment, set out in the pouring rain Monday, June 3 – soaked but smiling – as they paddled down Lake Joli.

William ‘Bub’ Harlow is leading the group as he is the only one to have made the whole trip before.

Cindy Bowers, Stephen Meuse, Josh Goucher, Christopher Harlow, Carol Ann Potter, Dawn McEwan and Rob McEwan are the other members of the Bear River community on the trip.
