I've seen many old photos of P.Trudeau paddling.
Anyone know of a list?

He did part of the Coppermine in the late 60's.

This article http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/jus ... le1169700/
talks about Justin repeating his father's trip on the Nahanni.

I knew about Nahanni (and some of the history), and Coppermine, also heard mention of Thelon.
Pretty respectable given the time period. Just wondered about others.

Just seems like an odd combination, especially considering that I live in the USA
and what the current offering of politicians is.

Ski,

Interesting quest!

As you might be aware PET was a sometimes member of "the Voyageurs" with Eric Morse in the early 1960's and later neighbour to Bill Mason at Meech Lake. Pretty fair paddling buddies!
Having recently read Eric Morse memoirs "Whitewater Saga" i'd suggest that might be a good source of info on possible rivers- Morse doesn't specifically list all the paddlers on each of their remote trips. He was with Morse on the Coppermine in 1966. From his memoirs, he spoke of paddling the Harricana in 1941, the Nahanni in 1970, Hanbury-Thelon in 1979.
