René’s been a lumberman, a raftsman, a voyageur, a coureur de bois, and a loup-garou: half-man, half wolf! René’s in The Flying Canoe in the Richcraft Theatre on February 9th at 11:30 and 1:30.

What do you do?
I can steer a canoe with my eyes closed!

What colour are your pyjamas?
Eh? I never change my clothes. I wash my socks once a year.

What’s your favourite bedtime story?
Have you heard the one about the loup-garou? That was me.

What do you have for breakfast?
Beans, of course. For lunch, beans. For supper, beans. Baked beans. Yum

Where would you most like to go on holidays?
I’d like to go to Montreal to see my girl friend.

When did your first big adventure start?
It was New Year’s Eve . . .

Where did it take you?
To my Uncle’s house, and later, into a snow bank.

Why did you get involved?
I wanted to see my girl friend.

How did you know that your life had changed forever?
When I howled at the moon.

What three things would you bring to a deserted island?
My paddle, beans, and my buddy, Jean-Marc.

What’s one thing you don’t like?
Being stuck in a house.

Do you have a catch phrase?

Do you have any bad habits?
Probably I should wash my socks more often.

What scares you?
Not getting to the trading post ahead of the other trappers.
