Did you already know people here in Canada? Did you meet any new people on your way to Canada? If so, do you still communicate with them?

With the exception of an aunt of my wife’s, we did not know anyone in Canada. As far as I know we are the only Kammanns in the phone book in Montreal. Up until 1982, one could still travel from Germany to Canada by boat. This is how we arrived. On the boat, we met a group of Mennonite girls returning from Germany, people who were immigrating to Canada, and people who were just travelling to Canada. We don’t have contact today with any of these people.
