I've been studying the map.

Take them up Hwy 69, the one that goes NW along Georgian Bay. It has the dots which mean it is scenic. Go to Sudbury and visit the earth and mining museum. Eat fish fresh from the lake.

Do the streams on Georgian Bay plunge over the cliff on the north side of the road and make a short journey to the lake? That's what I saw on a trip along Lake Superior, and it's a sight I will never forget.

Your visitors will be thrilled by the huge size of Canada, by its forests, streams and clean air. Also, they will be glad to have a local person along to give them confidence.

On the way out of town you can show them Shane McBride's place, so they know they are not just seeing the sugar-coated tourist side of your country. Better take a banjo along, just in case.
