Reaching for the Top

Bernard Voyer has made a career of challenging his inner and physical strength. The intrepid Montréal-based adventurer has skied to the North and South poles and climbed the seven summits — the highest peak on each continent — including Mount Everest (right).

Only a few people in the world have managed such a feat. In 2000, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society awarded its Gold Medal to Voyer for his accomplishments.

This spring, Voyer will relive his arduous treks to the two poles and the top of Everest with audiences in Ottawa. He will touch on the physical and mental preparation required to carry out expeditions in such extreme geography and will share stories about the lands and the people he has encountered along the way.

His multimedia presentation will be held on April 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. at Centrepointe Theatre in Ottawa. Tickets go on sale March 17, 2003.
