I have to dispel some awful rumors I heard about this place.

First of all, the flight in, however long, was not as stomach-turning as people said it would be.

I've been on worse roller coasters.

I am a film and television director working throughout the country and a member of the Director's Guild of Canada.

From the ice they are freed, the stream and brook,
By the Spring's enlivening, lovely look;

Back to the rugged mountain slope.
From there, as he flees, he downward sends
An impotent shower of icy hail
Streaking over the verdant vale.
