  • Quesnel

    “We had the first bathtub in town,” Barb Dodge said from behind her laptop. I did a double-take and looked at my surroundings. I was in an office at the RBC Building on St. Laurent Ave. in Quesnel, B.C. Barb, the branch manager, had brought in some old archival photos mounted to cardboard along with an original scale they used back in the days when they accepted gold at the bank.

  • 100 Mile House

    The Hot July Nights (July 13-15, 2018) car and bike show is fast-approaching but as you head up or down Highway 97 this season, consider exploring 100 Mile House from a unique angle - from the water. Whether you’re out at the family cabin by the lake, or right in town.

     

  • As Canada Day approaches, you may find yourself wondering how last year’s sesquicentennial celebrations can be topped—if you’re not still worn out from them, that is.

If you’re already thinking about how to keep the party going for Canada’s 151st, check out these events happening across BC and Alberta that will help you relive the magic of Canada 150.

  • Before arriving in the 1930s Gold Rush town of Wells, B.C. people told me it was like a mini Newfoundland, because of the brightly painted buildings. But after meeting so many talented, inspiring, and community-building women, many originally from East Vancouver, it reminded me more of the Vancouver neighbourhood of Strathcona.

  • Alex Cuba's mirrored aviators glint neon green as he tilts his face toward the sun.

    The Afro-Cuban jazz groove master has just launched into his hit Beautiful Mistake and the crowd at the Salmon Arm ROOTSandBlues Festival is going wild.

  • Nothing brings people and communities together like gathering for food. The smell wafting through the air, the sound of the sizzle of a grill, the clink of glasses in celebration and the purr of the people enjoying the bounty is the perfect recipe for foody fun.

  • carving on the edge

    Carving on the Edge delivers a spirited experience that is so special it’s a bit hard to explain, but ideally this story will help give you a taste for it. But first, I want to paint a picture that transports you there.
