Mary Ruth Harris
Mary Ruth Harris spent the first quarter of her life, assuming she lives to be 100, in the heart of southern Ontario’s agricultural mecca of Essex and Kent counties. Also, known as one of the most competitive media markets in all of North America – the seed of journalism had taken root. After a year exploring Europe, back on Canadian soil she landed in Victoria – a few days later informing her family she would be living on Vancouver Island the rest of her life. 24 years and counting, Mary Ruth embraces every opportunity to share stories of adventure, discovery and experience.
