Quebec announcement !

Today the premier of Quebec has announced a staged opening of the province with much of the region to be opened on May 4th and the city of Montreal to begin opening on May 11!  Unfortunately the region of Charlevoix (Riviere du Loup to Quebec City) is still closed.

This of course does not mean that everything has returned to normal and we will be taking more precautions both for ourselves and for others.  This year - in the short term - we are going to shift to mailing out supply packages so as not to take away resources from rural communities and we will likely come into much less contact with people as we venture.  It also means that if conditions worsen in a region, such as Montreal, be may be forced to navigate around it to respect ongoing situations.  

This means that we can tentatively say (without trying to jinx it) that around May 15th we can resume trekking along The Great Trail​ from Quebec City westward!

It is exciting to begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel of the quarantine. social distancing and public responsibility are still very much going to be part of the "new normal" but this is nonetheless positive news!
