Families: `We're going to Canada with our sons for three weeks in July. What would be a good itinerary for us?

Q We are taking our two sons (aged 10 and 12) to a family reunion weekend at Lake Rosseau in Muskoka, Canada, at the end of July. We have three weeks' holiday around it and were wondering how best to use the time. We would like to spend a few days camping around the lakes of Algonquin Provincial Park, and also visit Niagara Falls. We were also wondering about driving to Boston, but have no idea how far it is. The children would like to visit a theme park.

Letter: Traditions of the hunt

Sir: Meredith Stranges from Ontario wishes to visit a "Merrie Olde Englande" theme park to pursue the love of ripping wild animals apart (letter, 1 February). I live in rural Devon and the hunt sickens me. Meredith Stranges is right about one thing though, it is a class issue; the issue being that when other animal torments such as bear- baiting and dog-fighting were made illegal, the gentry didn't feel the need to rid themselves of their own favourite form of animal torture.

Letter: Hunt ban tramples on a thousand years of English tradition

Sir: Thank you for publishing the letter from David Dear ("Hunt celebrates life", 25 January). He is absolutely right.
