    • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

      Vancouver 7 hours ago

      For many years I've wanted to see the Royal Canadian Mounted Police show and I note that they are preforming at the Rotary Club of Kamloops Aurora Centennial and at the Victoria Military Music Society in August. I've googled both of these organisations about the details with zero success. Does anyone please have any info about these events. Many thanks

    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

    • 1st week in Feb

      Vancouver Island Jan 17, 2017 at 5:17 AM

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

      glass bridge

      Canada Jan 20, 2017 at 7:20 AM

      I remember seeing that there is a glass bridge in either Jasper or Banif, but I can't recall the details. I had not paid much attention as I did not intend on going that way any time soon, but now I will be going to both this summer and am wondering where it is. Thanks

    • Your personal face picture

      It might be a good idea to delete your personal picture, eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active. Think of doing this from a security aspect.

    • Public Wifi

      by TinaJ11 Online Now Apr 19, 2016 at 3:01 PM

      My sister has just moved to Baffin Island for a 3 month position. She tried to get Wifi, but that was a year commitment. Is there public Wifi on this Island at any of the restaurants or library? She is extremely lonely, can you offer any suggestions of places to go for a single person. She is also walking to where ever she needs to go. She is close to the local hospital.

    • Sea Kayaking

      by jessiegladish Online Now Feb 4, 2011 at 1:09 PM

      I am looking for any advice or information on sea kayaking the east coast of Baffin. I am putting together a "dream expedition" as a class assignment, with the hope of one day following through with the plan.

      What I would like to know is the coastal distance between Iqaluit and Pangnirtung, and also between Clyde Bay and Pond Inlet. If anyone has sea kayaked either of these areas I'd appreciate your knowledge.

      The expedition dream is to self propel from southern Baffin to Pond Inlet, through xcountry skiing, sea kayaking and/or trekking.

      Any advice is welcome! Thank you.
