I got quoted in a Toronto Star article last week, which is no big deal to the dozens of people quoted in the paper every day, but I grew up in Toronto, and have been in the papers here in Victoria many times, but have never been in the Toronto Star. Anyway, here’s what this is about…
If you’re a long time reader of my blog, or a friend of mine, you may be aware of my very brief attempt in 2007 to walk across Canada. In preparation for this walk I researched previous walks, and wrote a blog post entitled “Other People Who Have Walked Across Canada”.
In the 5 years since, that page has become the most read page on my blog. It is, as far as I know, the only thing that passes for a complete list of people who have walked across Canada.
So because of that blog post, which comes up high on a web search, the journalist contacted me to talk about people who walked across Canada. We talked for about an hour, and in the end I got a brief mention and will now go down in history as one of the most ridiculous fails in the history of attempting to walk across Canada.
For your amusement and my own ego, here is a list of other articles I have been featured/quoted in.
