I guess silver has not been east of the rockies either!
I will extend a down east invite to anyone wishing to see where CANADA came from, we work hard, play hard and love the taste of surf and turf. (lobster and steak)
Island spuds are knowen around the world.
Tourists have gave us quite a few laughs, those that expected to walk around the island for a look (235 klmx35klm) some do walk the confederation trail it runs the whole length.
Our second industry is aerospace with toutism third.
anyone wanting more info ask.

My only question would be: Why is it when people hear you're from BC they assume you're NOT east of the Rockies? Best part of this dang province is on the east side.

My only question right now is, "It kinda sounded to me like you were putting Vancouver in with all those other provinces. Is that what you were doing so as to maintain the wilderness/open country/ranch country flavor of the rest of the province, which, of course, is many times better?"

Ha!

No, HO HO HO!

Merry Christmas!

ps - My business partner lives and works in Vancouver. I am in Arizona most of the time.

I secretly wish to be an Albertan. And publicly distance myself from the tree huggers over the mountains. :wink:

If I move to Alberta will I be able to see Ian Tyson a lot? That might do it! He's one of my very favorites!
