Hey there everyone, this is John's wife Jenn. John is away on a photo tour right now, so I get to do all his work at home -- bet you can guess who's having more fun ;-)
CBC's producers just let me know that they are airing John's interview about the grizzly bear deaths caused by trains in Banff National Park tonight on 'The National' nationwide. Please tune in tonight as it airs in your local time zone to catch the interview and story.

Please visit this page and leave your ideas on how you think the bears of Banff National Park can be saved.
