Can a canoe journey be a floating workable forum to bring Canadians together and discuss reconcillation?

From the Canadian Canoe Museum website:

The Connected by Canoe Journey was a two-part canoe trip from Kingston to Ottawa that carried with it a message about the on-going importance and possibilities of canoes for community building in Canada's continuing evolution as a nation and helped to welcome delegates to the Community Foundation of Canada annual gathering in Ottawa. 

Imagine a floating conversation amongst a group of people from a variety of backgrounds as they paddled the Rideau Waterway, and at each stop along the way, the conversation expands in different ways to include local voices and discussions of building an equitable, sustainable and inclusive future for Canada.
