In August 1959, on a budget of $1,000.00, Gerry Dyke, Jim Groenewald, Moe Hague, Terry Huntington, and Albert McArdle set out from the Montreal suburb of Lachine on a 7,000-mile camping car trip across part of North America. (Okay, it was 7,192 miles, and worked out closer to 13.9 cents per mile.)
It would be very easy to compose a list of everything that is going wrong in the world and much more difficult to put together a list of things that are going right. But I’m going to take up the challenge. When I look at my world, and my world is that of middle class Canada, and compare what I experienced when I was a young man about fifty or sixty years ago with what I experience now, I can find many things that have improved.
