the north island restaurant report: where to eat in port hardy and port mcneill

I was sure that one of the downsides of moving to a small town in a relatively remote area would be a serious lack of food choices. I've been very happy to be wrong! There aren't a lot of restaurants here, but what's here is very good -- well-prepared, fresh, tasty food, and excellent, friendly service. As with most things, I'm finding that having a few choices are enough.  I cook a lot more now, as there's no prepared food, and I'm also less busy and have more energy. Allan's been helping ...

Canucks News & Rumors: Benning, Biega, Pettersson & Bure

It’s a difficult part of the season for the Vancouver Canucks, one way or another. The team has all but been eliminated from the playoffs, yet they went into Dallas and Chicago took two overtime wins from the Stars (in a shootout) and the Blackhawks (when Bo Horvat scored 16 seconds into overtime). Most fans might suggest that it’s a time when the Canucks should be losing, but this is a team that seems to win when it should be losing and loses when it should be winning. There is a slight cha...

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Wednesday Afternoon Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - ... The focus should be on repairing the problems and focusing on the playoffs. This is too important a time of year. Babcock’s not walking away, but is anyone else wondering if this marriage is in trouble? - I think Vancouver is going to look at finding a youngish defenceman, maybe somebody in his early to mid-20s. Troy Stecher’s in that range, and he’s made real good strides. Quinn Hughes is younger, Alexander Edler and Chris Tanev older. Think...

6 Cities That Deserve Another Chance

Travel isn’t always rainbows and puppies. Sometimes bad things happen and sometimes we visit places that we don’t like. I know, I know, there’s something good to be found everywhere; except when you don’t want to find it. Usually when I don’t like a new city or destination it’s because I was in a bad mood or something rubbed me the wrong way. I’m a fairly temperamental person and when I decide I don’t like something, I tend to never deviate from that idea. So in a spirit of reconciliation, I be...

Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Best Value in Luxury Cruises?

Is Regent Seven Seas Cruises the Best Value in Luxury Cruises? Regent Seven Seas Cruises makes a bold claim that they are the best value in luxury cruises. And interestingly, they seem to be willing to back up their claim each year with written comparisons that they make between themselves and other luxury cruise providers. While I am one who strongly feels that you can’t and shouldn’t judge a luxury travel experience solely by price, as so many are want to do, it certainly makes sense to bring...

Best things to do in Calgary

Calgary is a city that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. It doesn’t see nearly the visitor numbers of Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal, and despite being the largest city in Alberta it’s actually not even the provincial capital. The jumping off point for many of the four million annual visitors to Banff National Park, this city of 1.2 million is a cowtown that’s grown up and found its footing among the country’s modern skylines. It’s one that hasn’t forgotten the roots that make it uniq...

What I Learned From Spending Two Nights in the Woods

You’ve probably come across an online quiz or seven where they ask if you’ve ever done this, if you’ve ever eaten that, or if you’ve ever visiting this place or that. You tally up your score and determine that you’ve still got a lot of the world to see, a lot of food to eat, and a lot of items to tick off your bucket list. Even though I was born and raised right here in Vancouver, I’ve always wondered about how Canadian I really am. I mean, I enjoy poutine and beaver tails as much as the next h...

How Could It Not Be A Goal?

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet, But whenever Vancouver fans think of Sunday’s game, it won’t be for Schaller scoring a deuce or Josh Leivo sniping the shootout winner. It will be for rookie Elias Pettersson being denied a second-period goal when Stars goaltender Anton Khudobin foiled Pettersson on a second-period penalty shot by throwing his stick straight into the Swede’s feet. Despite clear wording in the NHL rulebook that a goal should have been awarded automatically on Khudobin’...

Rangers Are This Season’s Unluckiest Team

The New York Rangers have had a season like no other in the team’s recent history. As a club that used to be a perennial Stanley Cup contender, the Rangers are used to getting good breaks and lucky rewards. That is seemingly the nature of the playoffs. One bounce here and one tip there, the team that takes advantage of the lucky breaks usually wins. But now the Rangers are experiencing the other side, the unlucky one. They’re a team that puts forth a plentiful amount of effort night in and night...

It wasn’t surprising that Mats Zuccarello, Kevin Hayes and Adam McQuaid were among the New York Rangers players moved either prior to or at the trade deadline. The aftermath of these three trades has set the Rangers up to become an active participant in this summer’s offseason.
