      Michel and Rob,

      Let's schedule Vimy Ridge for Saturday morning. I think it will run into the
      early afternoon.

      I have been to Vimy Ridge myself, a little over twenty years ago. On that
      trip the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Ypres was very helpful to our
      family in finding the resting place of my father's uncle. The ceremony at
      the Menin Gate was quite moving.

      Great. So Scott, I'm available Saturday morning and afternoon. You choose.

      A former colleague worked as a guide at Vimy Ridge for a year. She's now
      doing radio news for CBC out of Whitehorse. There is no specific
      connection between those two things, but there you go.
