Celebrating Canada 150 with a Ford road trip from Toronto to Sault Ste. Marie

Put me in a car, with the open road, and I may be just about the happiest guy around. My family and I went on a road trip, from Toronto to Sault Ste.

It was a getaway that showed off why road trips can be so much fun, and why Ontario is such an incredible place to live.
