05/07/2008 - One of Canada's largest rivers, the Rupert drains lac Mistassini into James Bay in North West Quebec. The Rupert was used as an important trade route dating back to 1668 and in recent times has been a favourite multi-day wilderness trip among recreational canoeists. On June 1st Patrick Camblin, Ben Marr, Joel Kowalski and Phil Quinn took the long drive north to Waskaganish hoping to find this classic river in flood. 3 days later the group took off the lower 80km section having found some enormous rapids separated by flatwater sections that would make any canoeist happy. The Rupert is scheduled to be diverted into La Grande hydroelectric complex sometime in the next 12 months, another huge loss for paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

10/04/2008 - This is the 'real' Africa. The river is banked by untamed wilderness full of dangerous animals, and the rapids are enormous, difficult and risky to scout - this river is not for the faint hearted.
