Happy Canada Day Weekend

It was officially Canada Day yesterday but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate all weekend. This is the best time of the year for Canadians. We get to drink a few beers in the sun and set off a lot of fireworks at night. Whether you’re grilling some fresh caught trout up at the cottage or roasting veggie dogs over a hibachi on a tiny downtown deck enjoy the blue skies, gentle breezes, the free healthcare and all that is great about our county.
