Margaret Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire in Ethiopia
During the week of October 7-14, 2006, a group of intrepid travellers, including Margaret Trudeau, e-talk Daily’s Quebec correspondent Sophie Grégoire, WaterCan’s Program Director George Yap, WaterCan’s Executive Director Gary Pluim, Hello! Magazine’s Peter Bregg and a documentary film crew from CTV visited WaterCan’s Ethiopian projects.
Over the course of the trip, lives were changed, life-long friends were made and a new perspective was gained about the water and sanitation crisis and what joint ventures like those between WaterCan and our overseas partners are doing to make a difference.
The documentary, produced by 90th Parallel Productions entitled “ A Window Opens: Margaret and Sophie in Ethiopia” aired on CTV on Saturday May 12th at 7:00 ET. For more information on the documentary, please click on the CTV logo.
