The 2015 UNB Alumni Tour engaged Joel Stoppels for its tour of the Canadian Liberation campaign from Apeldoorn north to and including Groningen. Joel did an excellent job. He is knowledgeable, courteous and enthusiastic. He adjusted his tour to meet our needs, and added some elements that made it special. Highly recommended. Marc Milner, UNB History Department
