  • Notes 
    • I've spent three or four months a year for thirty years canoeing the river systems of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, mostly in the Barren Lands. In all those years, I've personally never had a scare or a close call on the water. I've only dumped or swamped a canoe once. That was back in 1976 and I don't plan on ever doing it again.
      In all my years in business as a professional canoeing guide, I'm proud to say that none of my clients has ever had a serious accident or injury, on land or water. Over the course of a summer, we often run hundreds of rapids, but on average, my clients have upset less than one canoe per year. There are probably a number of reasons for our enviable safety record. The ones I would identify as being crucial would be my experience in assessing my clients' capabilities and my commitment to communicate clearly with them on how to avoid the potentially dangerous situations we encounter en route. Perhaps most important, I take charge of my clients and I never take chances.
