How an OWC AGM changed my life

How an OWC AGM changed my life

My first AGM opened my eyes. Wide.
Growing up in Northwestern Ontario I assumed all of Canada had plenty of water. Lakes galore. Not so. Southern Alberta's lakes are mostly reservoirs and it is dry. Might not rain for days or even weeks. I had no idea.
Canada has a desert? Who knew? How do people survive without camps on lakes? Saunas and fish smokers? Where had I moved to? What time's the next bus?
