[blockquote]Rick Mercer taking a kayak lesson.Hello All, be sure to watch this Tuesday's edition of The Mercer Report on CBC at 8:00 pm EST.

Good friend of mine James Roberts of www.learntokayak.ca teaches Rick Mercer of CBC's The Mercer Report some kayaking at The Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show the all important skill of the wet exit. I got to meet and talk briefly with Rick as well. Also, he was wearing my drysuit for the taping.

It was a lot of fun to watch it being taped, we hope a lot of it ends up on the show.

You may see me in the background of some of the shots when Rick is trying stand up paddle boarding.

For those of you who do not get CBC, do not have a PVR, or miss the show you can watch it here, www.cbc.ca/mercerreport, a day or two after it has aired.
