In fifteen years this show has covered a lot of territory; a lot of hours in the van; a lot of hours in the sky. We have visited over 500 different locations in Canada. Every province, every territory. Someone did the math, turns out I have walked 42 kilometres in this alley since we began. I’ve loved every minute of it.

It’s embarrassing how much I love my job.  And the best part? Other than rolling the car, plunging into freezing water or being bit by Mike Duffy’s dog? Hands down it’s the travel. I don’t know if we are the greatest country on Earth, but I know this—we’re the best looking.

And I also know in my heart of hearts, we would be better, stronger, and more unified if more Canadians could make it their business to see more of Canada. And I know it’s not easy. Not everyone has the resources to travel to see the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia or the foothills of Alberta; or to go up the Saguenay River in Quebec.  And if you don’t, if you can’t make the big trips, make the small trips in your own backyard. I guarantee you, it is awesome.

And if you do have the means, either now or in the future, skip the trip to Florida, explore a part of Canada you’ve never seen or better yet, promise yourself that you will stand above the tree line before you die. You will not regret it.

We all know we’re a great country. But it’s not enough to just know it. Do yourself, your family, Canada a favour. Go out there and see it.
