Go CANADA Go!!!!!
Over the last few days all the best international skiers have arrived for Ski Tour Canada. Many have been seen skiing in the Gatineau Park or at Nakkertok Nordic (slideshow with several photos, video of Steve Paradine and Gilles Bérubé with the French team, video of the Finns coming down Dirk's Dive, and video of the arrival of some of the athletes).
Now is your the chance to get up close to see the race course and cheer them and Team Canada (including Nakkertok's Patrick and Katherine Stewart-Jones - here's a Citizen article on them) on Tuesday at Jacques Cartier Park.
Free admission! ($ Parking at the Museum)
