Beautiful British Columbia

That’s actually what it says on our cars’ license plates: “Beautiful British Columbia”. I find that the provinces typically have their license mottos pretty spot on. I’ve never met an unfriendly Manitoban, so “Friendly Manitoba” seems pretty fitting. Ontario is definitely there for you to discover; in fact, I’ve been living in Toronto for eight months now and only today did I discover that Hamilton, an hour’s drive away, is apparently home to some amazing waterfalls, including Albion Falls. Nova Scotia proclaims that it’s “Canada’s Ocean Playground”, which I would have a hard time not believing. And just to cover all bases, the commemorative plates for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics state that BC is the “Best Place on Earth”. To defend BC’s latest claim, I thought today’s post would be a tribute to my homesickness and the beauty of my home province.
