We took a week off from the news last week while we undertook a whirlwind planes, trains and automobiles (and buses) tour of Ontario and Quebec (that's still happening!). It's been great to see some of our members on our travels and sample some great food along the way. We're excited to see what's in store for us this week as we wrap up with more time in Ontario before heading back to Vancouver late in the week. Check out our Instagram feed to see a sampling of our travels!
