    HARBOURFRONT, TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Museum of Inuit Art Director and
Co-founder, David Harris, will join Toronto Mayor David Miller on February 18,

Harris's bid to ride the equivalent distance from Toronto, Ontario to Iqaluit,
Nunavut (2350 km as the crow flies). David Harris is cycling over two hours
daily in all weather conditions through the streets of Toronto from January 1
to April 1st, 2009. Mayor David Miller and David Harris will meet on February
18 at an appointed major intersection in downtown Toronto.

Toronto's newest Museum's first Annual Membership Drive and to raise awareness
of this award-winning institution. This cycling event will culminate to
coincide with and commemorate the 10th anniversary of the founding of Nunavut
on April 1st, 2009.

Organization, and is southern Canada's only public museum devoted exclusively
to Inuit art. MIA's permanent exhibition, featuring hundreds of works of Inuit
art, is situated at the Toronto Harbourfront and has won a number of
