From the Tonawanda News:
After his first meeting with officials on the Canadian side of the Niagara River on Thursday, Nik Wallenda was careful to walk a fine line of cautious optimism despite the fact the Niagara Parks Commission outright opposes his idea to cross the Horseshoe Falls on a wire.
“I’m very positive no matter what,” Wallenda said after meeting with NPC general manager Fay Booker. “My great-grandfather (Karl Wallenda) told us to never give up and I would never give up.”
A day after holding a similar gathering on the American side, Wallenda was in Niagara Falls, Ont., to sell his bid to local officials who will decide whether to allow him to cross the Horseshoe Falls on a steel wire next year.
