Since we learned of her untimely passing, tributes for Anita Stewart (CM) have been pouring in from across the country.
We are blessed to have worked with Anita in the development and delivery of Adventure Canada’s Taste of Place program on our 2019 Newfoundland Circumnavigation.
Janet Buchanan, an Adventure Canada guest who lives in Toronto, wrote to us, “I'm so glad to have had the privilege to meet Anita and get to know her a bit, after many years of just knowing her name and what she was doing for our country.”
Anita, you are missed!
