  • The paddling community who welcomed us with open arms, and gave us many helping hands, East-Enders who welcomed a new sport into their neighbourhood, and gave our canoe club a chance;
  • Our lovely MP, Marie-France Lalonde, for her constant support for the canoe club since even before day 1, and for her help on this boathouse project specifically;
