It's Canada Day! Happy 152 birthday, Canada....


Canadian Flag


Canada Day...July 1...and it is on a Monday this year. It's a holiday weekend that signals the beginning of Summer Vacation, right across Canada.

On Salt Spring? Enjoy the Classic Car Show, the live music venues, and be in Ganges Village at dusk for the Fireworks celebration.

Canadians can appear reticent...historically, a mix of British "stiff upper lip", French warm spirit, and U.S. business acumen...but generosity and fair mindedness are long standing Canadian traits.

How lucky we are, to call Canada "home".

Welcome.
