Canadian Roadstories: Judy and Glenn’s Excellent Adventures in Canada

Judy Hammond and Glenn Cameron are partners in a public relations firm called Clear Communications. They are also two of the best examples I know of public educators in the most comprehensive sense of the word.

As a retired teacher, I often say that “not all teachers are in classrooms.”

And this is especially true of many individuals and companies who work in the travel and tourism industry, which by the way is the largest industry on the planet.

It is also an industry that creates significant revenue for any community whether that community is national, regional, or local. And tourism revenues are an essential part of the “business plan” of any destination.

That is also why all destinations avail themselves of the expertise of public relations specialists such as Judy and Glenn.

For more information, see Clear Communications.

See also Judy and Glenn’s website Canadian Roadstories.

If Canada is your destination of choice, these Canadian Roadstories will enlighten and entertain. They will also serve as a first point of departure for planning a trip to Canada; and they will also demonstrate why Canada is one of the most diverse travel and tourism destinations on the planet.

And now, see below for a brief excerpt from Judy and Glenn’s Canadian Roadstories.

Quotes about Canada

It’s summer in Canada and the big city is a little quieter these days. After a nine-day driving tour of the Canadian Badlands in southeastern Alberta, I was happy to spend a couple of days at a cottage near Georgian Bay in Ontario. It’s a very short walk to the “outhouse” and the water comes up from the lake in buckets. Perfect.

After trying and failing to get my “turbo rocket mobile Hi-Speed Internet Solution” to work, and startling the local fauna by charging my laptop with the gas-powered generator, I resigned myself to a quiet weekend of unconnectedness and contemplation.

There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured, and generous-hearted people.” – Sir Winston Churchill

Book cover: Canada Inside Out

Every self-respecting summer dwelling has a collection of books stashed away somewhere. Usually right next to the stack of board games. Titles on how to identify trees or call moose are common. There I found a great little book called Canada Inside Out, a collection of quotations about Canada and Canadians, edited by David Olive. So I spent a number of hours reading about how critical Canadians are of themselves and how foreigners are usually unstinting in their praise of my country. It’s an inspiring read, especially when sitting on a piece of  Precambrian rock by a freshwater lake. I think it’s also out-of-print. So keep your eyes out at your friend’s cottage this summer.

In the meantime, here are some web pages that feature Canadian-inspired quotes…
