  • Distant drumming and high, dusty falsetto singing carry on the wind. We pass through the shadows of the covered stands, sun gracing the meadows, swirls of colour flying in all directions as drums swell and surge, urging the dancers on. This is how I remember Canada Day 2019, arriving at the Beaver Lake Cree Nation's annual pow wow.

  • Like any season from ski season, golf season, baseball, football…any of them, any aficionado gets itchy feet as the season comes closer. So, it’s no surprize that festival lovers are anticipating the season. Who will be on the line-up at your favourite festival? Only the organizers and the singer’s agents know for sure.

  • You’ve been there before – standing at the gates or waiting in line among several or hundreds of others. Then someone pulls open their backpack and takes out their wireless mobile charging stand. Of course! That’s what you forgot to bring!

  • Ever wonder how Whistler Blackcomb got its name? It’s a cool story that reaches way back into the geological past of the Coastal Mountain range and has something to do with a punk hairstyle.

  • Festival season is here and that means road trip!
