topsy-turvy land: u.s. states make protest illegal and driving into protestors legal

It seems that state lawmakers in several U.S. states need a refresher course on the First Amendment. It's a very simple amendment, really. Amendment ICongress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.While the beloved First Amendment has always been selectively applied -- cue t...

what i'm reading: never cry wolf by farley mowat

I have read many essays and op-eds by Farley Mowat, the legendary Canadian naturalist, but until now, had never read any of his many books. (He was incredibly prolific.) When visiting Russell Books in September, I noticed a copy of Never Cry Wolf and picked it up. I'm so glad I did! It's a short, easy-to-read book that would appeal to any nature lover, not only wolf enthusiasts like me.Never Cry Wolf: The Amazing True Story of Life Among Arctic Wolves, first published in 1963, chronicles three...

A Canoe Trip in Canada You Probably Won’t Want to Do

We’re eight kilometres into a 290 kilometre canoe trip in northern Saskatchewan and I’m already wondering how I’m going to survive two weeks of paddling. It’s not the bugs, the rain or the mildly hypothermic temperatures I’m worried about – but our campsite we’ve had to carve out of the forest on a bed of slippery reindeer moss. Is this what we’re going to have to do every night for two weeks I wonder to myself? John and I have driven 1,200 kilometres to Reindeer Lake in northern Saskatchewan ...

There are jobs in smaller cities for new immigrants to Canada.

Smaller cities offer good job opportunities, more affordable housing, and high quality of life By Kareem El-Assal Over the past twenty years, Canada has sought to encourage more immigrants to move to its smaller cities. The main tool it has used to pursue this goal has been the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The PNP enables provinces and territories across the country to develop their own eligibility criteria for economic class immigrants and then nominate immigrants who meet their la...

The most remote train journeys

Train travel has a fresh spotlight on the tourism stage thanks to movements in slow and sustainable travel. One of our greenest choices, trains make us nomads back on the ground level. It’s a strange, meditative speed with ample time to process and daydream. Trains also allow us to roam where roads don’t go and gaze on things planes don’t see. These epic train adventures epitomize this spirit, giving us the best of both journey and destination. 1. Trans-Siberian Railway — Russia, Mongolia, a...

Most endangered plants in the US

A rose by any other name may smell just as sweet, but what about a blackspore spillwort? Or cabbage on a stick? Do you even know what cabbage on a stick is supposed to smell like? A lot better than you think, most likely, but the problem is you’ll likely never get to smell either of those because they are gravely endangered. In pursuing NetCredit’s research on the most endangered plants in every state, you’ll not only notice the plant names are absolutely fantastic, you’ll also see how human ...

World’s coldest cities

The world is a cold, cold place. This isn’t just something you learn the first time your parents refuse to send you money to cover that month’s rent. It’s also something you learn when you venture to the far-north reaches of the planet any time during the winter. But just because a place registers daily temps in the negative 40s doesn’t necessarily mean it’s boring. Sure, cars might not work and you’ll literally freeze to death if you’re outside in the wrong clothes for more than a few minut...

35 Top Day Hikes in Canada – Personally Tested

I have been very lucky to spend a lot of time doing hikes in Canada – across all provinces and territories. What I look for in a great day hike is superlative scenery – with my preference being coast, lake or mountain views or even something that makes the hike unique. The Mingan with its fantastic eroded rock monoliths would be a great example. I’m not a fan of hiking miles through forests without a view. From decades of hiking I think these are 35 of the greatest day hikes in Canada. ...

Iconic Canadian dishes

When many people think of traditional Canadian food, poutine and maple syrup come to mind. Canada, however, is a vast country with 10 provinces and three territories. Each has an iconic food or dish to try that tells about the culture, history, and resources of the region. Some draw from First Nations diets, while others are from colonial and other immigrant backgrounds. All are worth a taste in your travels. These are the iconic foods and dishes to try in each of Canada’s provinces and terri...

How to Apply to Canadian Universities and Colleges

by  Abigail Byle Canadian universities and colleges provide high-quality post-secondary education, and they are accepting more and more applications from international students. However, there are some unique characteristics of post-secondary education in Canada to keep in mind. One important distinction is that, in Canada, universities refer only to schools that offer full degree programs, such as a bachelor’s degree, whereas colleges are more vocational and offer diploma and certificate ...

Book Review: 110 Nature Hot Spots in Manitoba & Saskatchewan

The book 110 Nature Hot Spots in Manitoba and Saskatchewan will forever change your perception of the provinces.

You just might have to look a little harder than in the Rockies. To that end Jenn Smith Nelson and Doug O’Neill, two talented Canadian travel writers, have penned a book that could forever change the look of your next road tr...

the north island report: what is going on with the price of gas?

I normally don't complain about prices, and I dislike when other people with privilege do so. But for every rule, there's at least one exception, and this is it. What the hell is going on with the price of gas??Gas is always expensive in our area, often a good $0.10 more per litre than in Nanaimo or Victoria. When we left Ontario, gas prices were fluctuating between around $1.15 and $1.25. The highest price I ever saw in southern Ontario was $1.35. Driving from the GTA to the Island, we were am...

7 Questions People Ask Canadians Abroad

Ottawa, Wellington Street, March 2018 “Where are you from?” “Canada.” An innocuous question, and an easy answer, right? And I’m not lying. I am Canadian—in fact, I chose to be Canadian.

I speak both official languages and a couple of unofficial ones, I produced a Canada-born son as instructed by Her Majesty, the Governor General and the Prime Minister to help solve the economic issue of an aging population, and I can shovel snow like a pro wh...

Best summer festivals in Canada

Canada is really the perfect neighbor. Quiet. Polite. And never does much other than say “Maybe you might not wanna do that, eh?” every time America gets drunk and starts yelling about burning the whole world down. Then once in a while, Canada throws a pretty good party too, and is always sure to invite us over. Most of those parties go down in the summer, the perfect time to visit since the weather is actually above freezing. Whether it’s the world’s richest rodeo, North America’s most prest...

World’s largest snow maze

When winter rolls around, some people decide to lock themselves in, while others spend the season building snowmen, snow fort, and, apparently, snow mazes. It took six and a half days of work a week for the last three weeks and 300 truck loads of snow, but Canadian Clint Masse did it: he built the world’s largest snow maze and broke the Guinness record. You might say that Masse’s entire life has been preparing him for this moment — for 21 years he has designed and erected corn mazes on his p...

How to Stay Healthy When You Travel to Mexico and the Caribbean
