A family originally from France is passing through Haida Gwaii this week, on the by road to Buenos Aires, Argentina. The four members of the Saint-Bonnet family are taking a full year to go from Montreal to South America, and just started at the end of June.Why are they doing it? “I think there are several reasons,” said father Luc Saint-Bonnet, “The first is we want to have an experience with our kids to discover the south of the world, the countries that are not so developed as Europe and North America”. “We want to experience with our children, that the world is not always as we can see on the TV and on the news, we have to experience and meet people,” he said. The Saint-Bonnets leave Haida Gwaii Tuesday, and will head down Vancouver Island, then south through the US to Mexico.
