  1. Great post! I’ve been to many of the places shown. I live in Vancouver, which bizarrely is on the mainland and not Vancouver Island. This fact confuses a lot of visitors. One day I hope to retire on Vancouver Island where the pace is slower.

  2. I’m always tempted to emigrate to Canada. It seems much more sane than here in the U.S. But recent revelations have shown that they too have their share of racism and right-wing hate filled maniacs.
