Some photos from Calgary, Toronto, Banff, and Ponteix.

The Saban's Going Away Party


Full size
Here is Kirk Saban hosting his last night at his bar in Calgary. This was the 'clean out the bar' night.


Full size
The shots went around a number of times. Note the minister for culture and community in attendance.
It's funny I didn't read about this event in our newsletter.


Full size
Natalia is double-fisting like a champ.


Full size
Had Lindsay not woken up, I would've had a photo of my wife sleeping with a minister!


The Hockey Hall of Fame


Full size
Mr Murray hosted a Canadian Summit in Toronto and had the presence of mind to put us downtown
instead of in the middle of Mississausage. We went go-karting and saw the Hockey Hall of Fame.
This was the view from my room to the CN Tower. I took this just to show my wife how well I get
treated, when I'm not on business with her.


Full size
A better view looking up the Tower.


Full size
The original Stanley Cup sits proudly in Toronto. It's too bad that the NHL's Stanley Cup won't see
Toronto for a long time...


Full size
Ovidiu with the Stanley Cup.

Sylvain with the Stanley Cup.


Full size
Harminder, a broken arm (not from go-karting), and the Stanley Cup.

Yours truly next to the toughest trophy to win in sports.

Rock Climbing at Wasootch


Full size
Natalia's brother Eric and I got a few hours of climbing in at Wasootch. He had had his climbing gear
stolen, so he bought a new pair of shoes that completely did not fit.


Full size
Here he is trying to make a move while not breathing since his feet hurt that much.


Full size
Executing a backstep - now in his sneakers.


Full size
In his defence, he climbed better in these!


Full size
The view up Wasootch.



Full size
Natalia really liked the sound of this bird singing, so I tried to get a good photo of it.
It looks kind of like a robin, but not really.


Climbing with Kurt and JB


Full size



Full size
Here is Kurt climbing at Wasootch. He yelled a lot, but did pretty well. He almost looks like a
climber here in my helmet.


Full size
He insisted that I take a photo when he got to the top.



Full size
My bike and I rode to Banff from Calgary. It's about 120km with a few decent hills in between.


Natalia and Lulu horseback riding


Full size
Natalia and her little sister Lulu rode horses in the mountains. Here is their train of horses returning
from their steak dinner.


Full size
The ladies are towards the back.

A little better light on this one.

squares she plans on eating.

Luc and Leah at the party. I just love Luc's hats!

Even Randall made an appearance with Grandma Perrault.


Full size
This picture makes me laugh. I love the look on Grandma Perrault's face.


Full size
It almost looks like Leah has Randall in her mouth.


Full size
Randall and the dinosaur outside Ponteix - "Mo" - the Ponteix Plesiosaur.



Full size
Steve Ranta made the trip north to visit in Calgary. Here he is golfing at the Kananaskis Golf Course.


Full size
You can tell it's Stampede time when the donut-burgers show up on the front page of the paper!
