Charles and Carol Fernandes, from Elliot Lake, Ont., walked through Fort Frances this week on their multi-summer trek along the entirety of Yonge Street (Highway 11) from Toronto to Rainy River. Although its claim as the world’s longest street is not technically accurate, this hasn’t dampened the spirits of the couple, who expect to complete the 1,896th kilometre of the route this Sunday.
