MARTHA STEWART IN CHURCHILL MANITOBA TO SEE THE POLAR BEARS
Michelle Pentz Glave reports:
“It’s not every day you have a celebrity in Churchill (MB),” Tony DaSilva told the Brandon Sun. What you do have are polar bears, and lots of ‘em. That’s why home décor diva Martha Stewart spent last weekend in and around Wapusk National Park near Churchill, in northern Manitoba near Hudson Bay: to see the giant white ursus maritimus live and learn more about the planet’s largest carnivore. The park is dedicated to protecting the animals. Stewart also stopped in for eggs at DaSilva’s restaurant—and caused quite a stir in the so-called “polar bear capital of the world.”
“The US TV personality has been posting updates about her visit on Twitter,” reported CBC News. “The most recent note, from Saturday (Nov. 6), said she was on a tundra vehicle, heading into the park to look for bears.”
What did Martha see in Churchill, Manitoba ... She arrived in Wapusk National Park in a helicopter, visited the Polar Bear Jail, rode in a tundra buggy, breakfasted on eggs at Gypsy's Bakery owned by the Da Silva family.
