Wilderness Canoe Association Logo The Wilderness Canoe Association recently announced that they have acquired the website Canadian Canoe Routes from its founder Richard Munn.

With 5600 registered users and over 200,000 posts, it is a massive resource canoeists living in or planning a trip to Canada.

Over the years there were various threats of scrap the whole thing and shut it down due lack of time to effectively maintain the site. It didn't help things when you had some very vocal people complaining that things were running the way they would like it.

The whole thing left some bad feelings on both side of the computer monitor.

I often drop in and see what is new and keep tabs on the paddling gossip at the grassroots level.

With the WCA taking over the entire project, it will ensure that this vast resource will be available for the public for many more years. With more moderators online now, it should help keep the conversations on topic a bit more.
