WHITEHORSE – What began as a young Ontario boy’s dream of seeing the Yukon through his teddy bear’s eyes will become an unexpected adventure for his entire family. Canada 3000, the City of Whitehorse and the Yukon’s Department of Tourism are bringing young Andrew Kemble and his family to the Yukon to be re-united with Mr. Patterson, the nationally renowned ‘teddy bear adventurer’. After his lengthy visit to the Yukon, Mr. Patterson will depart the territory in the company of his family and return to his Chatham, Ontario den for the winter.
Canada 3000 is happy to join the City of Whitehorse and the Department of Tourism to unite Mr. Patterson with his family so they can see the Yukon for themselves and take their famous bear home. City of Whitehorse Mayor Ernie Bourassa and Yukon Tourism Minister Sue Edelman are excited to ensure the bear’s family enjoys the height of Yukon hospitality during their visit.
Mr. Patterson first arrived in the territory in April on behalf of his eight-year-old owner, Andrew Kemble. In February the boy emailed a letter to Whitehorse City Hall explaining that he was doing this for his third-grade school project on the Yukon. It took Whitehorse City Hall only two days to reply informing Andrew the city would be delighted to host Mr. Patterson. Since his arrival in the Yukon, the bear has captured the hearts of Yukoners throughout his travels from Canada’s highest peak to the Chilkoot Trail.Read More →
