Daniel Cloutier, as 21 year old university student from Winnipeg, started a journey on May 1st to skate across Canada to help raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society (since mesothelioma explained officially, as well as some other types of cancer).
There seems to be a large stretch of no internet in Ontario. Here is a twitter update sent from Chantal’s phone: “Stopped in Wawa for 2 interviews and lunch! Now back on the road!”
He is now 40 days into his cross-country tour, skating in Northern Ontario.

Today was another great day for two big reasons. I’ll start with the good and then move on to the great news. The good news is that we’re back in Winnipeg! WOOOO! You should of heard the scream of joy I let out when I had asked Eric and Chantal, “are we officialy in Winnipeg?” and they replied with a “yes”. It was the greatest feeling up to now throughout this whole journey across western Canada. I have to say that it went by so quick, it’s unbelievable. It’s really crazy to think that 4 weeks ago we were getting ready in Stanley Park in Vancouver. Some people say that Winnipeg is not the halfway point of this trek but it sure feels like it is.
