IMG_4215 Home.  No matter how much I travel, I’ll always consider Canada home. I’ve lived in several cities … Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston, St. Albert, and Edmonton and visit friends and family in many more.  This country is so vast and each corner is so different from the next. I’ve not yet been to all of it — only nine of the ten provinces (I’m missing Newfoundland, what many say is the most unique Canadian province) and only one of three territories (Yukon, not Nunavut or the Northwest Territories). I have been above the Arctic circle though!

My general Canadian travel articles:



British Columbia

New Brunswick

Nova Scotia



Multiple locations

And, linking to my old life as a policy executive with the Government of Canada, an op-ed about the state of the Public Service after the October 2015 federal election, for The Ottawa Citizen:

  2. Great advice and I have something I want to add to your list. Edmonton is an awesome city and it is getting better all the time. I am an avid hockey fan but also a fan of business entrepreneurs like Daryl Katz. His family pharmacy empire grew tenfold under his direction and management. He paid $200 million for the Edmonton Oilers. in 2008 and he is currently working to refocus his efforts to build Canada’s largest mixed use-sports and entertainment district. He is by far one of the most successful businessmen in North America. I am looking forward to seeing how he helps to take this team to the next level and what is next venture will be. He is really focusing on helping Edmonton become a fantastic tourist destination. This venture is going to change the face of the city.


    • Thanks Jamie. Yup, Edmonton has a lot to offer and I”ve written a few articles on the city, as you’ll see above. I’ve deleted the link you provided, but many thanks for sharing your opinion.
