At last week’s Brechin Rotary Club meeting member Jon Bergen gave a presentation of his epic journey into the wilds of Canada as a youngster in 1978.

He took the members on a virtual canoe journey that was reminiscent of the film ‘Deliverance’ - but without the duelling banjos and crossbows.

Jon described how, as a young teenager, he braved the black bears, moose, and mosquitoes to experience the breathtaking scenery and rugged beauty of the virgin pine and spruce forests, picturesque rivers and lakes of the Quetico National Park.

Rotary Club member Isobel Luke gave Jon a vote of thanks for his adventurous look at the wild side of Canada.
