From Miramichi to Switzerland Local Spikes Now Foreign Art


by Les McLaughlin & Kellie Underhill V


harles Szhweizer is a 75 year old retired flight engineer for


Swiss Air. He’s from the Town of Vailais, in the French part of Switzerland, but his work with the airline had him travelling a lot so he’s also lived in Dakar, Senegal; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Athens, Greece; and Paris, France. Charles has never been to Miramichi, but he has a strong connection to the region. Several of his family members


have fallen in love with the area. His sister Jeannette and her husband Robert Zurbruegg have a cottage in Renous where they stay each year from May until the end of October.


Robert’s brotherHenrywas the first to discover Miramichi. He came for the fishing and bought land in Sunshine Acres at Cains River where he built a cottage. In 1988, Henry invited Jeannette


and Robert to visit him and they came back every year to Sunshine Acres until 1993. They loved it somuch they looked for a piece of land to build their own camp. Robert and Jeannette love the area, the friendly people and their wonderful neighbours. Charles' youngest daughter has also been here for a visit. But that's not Charles' only connection to the river.
