The Liberal Express Team has landed in Sault Ste. Marie! What a treat to enjoy the view of this beautiful city from the plane with some fall colours already beginning to show and with the deep blue waters of Lake Superior completing the picture. Then to take a deep breath of that clean refreshing air, as we walked off the plane.
But the real treat was Alice, who drove us from the airport into the city. This lady knows how to make new arrivals feel welcome in “the Soo.” She is what I call “a true northerner,” proud of her roots (she is from Blind River, where we’ll be tomorrow, by the way), willing to share its beauty, and hoping that newcomers will feel at home. So from one northerner to another (yes, I am from Sudbury): “Alice, thank you for being who you are!”
