Excellent video posted on YouTube… HAPPY CANADA DAY (July 1st), NEW YORK! from the CONSULATE GENERAL OF CANADA, NEW YORK.
FIRST POSTED IN 2011… In Canada, Victoria Day has long been associated with the unofficial start of the summer season. Veggie gardens get planted, family cottages are opened and the cobwebs are dusted off the old bar-B-Q. Canada’s May holiday actually celebrates Queen Victoria’s birthday.

Look what is all dressed up for the holidays!!! It was a crisp, cold December evening. We walked from a Sandy Hill B&B over to an Elgin Street bistro for a meal. After dinner, we took a camera and tripod over to Parliament Hill and snapped a bunch of pix including this one.
Recently we did some work for the good folks at Tourism New Brunswick and they tipped us off about a local treasure.

It’s the first game of the new hockey season and my beloved Habs (Montreal Canadiens) are in town to face their rival the Toronto Maple Leafs; a perfect time to talk about a Toronto hockey hang out.
Every fall, millions of birds, butterflies and dragonflies from across North America head south for winter. Along the north shore of Lake Erie in Ontario, Canada, these include birds of prey.
Bats are the world’s most misunderstood creatures.
