When I was a kid growing up on the East Coast one of my favourite winter activities was grabbing my brother’s wooden snowshoes, rounding up my uncle’s Springer Spaniel (Blueboy), and heading out into the woods. “Cousin Blue” and I spent many hours cutting new trails and following the ones we had previously created. Of course, things did not always go as planned…… (more…)

The World Partnership Walk is Canada’s largest annual event dedicated to raising funds and awareness to fight global poverty. Organized by volunteers in ten cities across Canada, in 2010 nearly 40,000 Canadians came together to raise more than $6 million. 100% of funds raised by you are used by Aga Khan Foundation Canada to help alleviate poverty and build sustainable solutions in the poorest regions of the world. These funds support meaningful projects identified and implemented by local communities – projects that revitalize rural economies, ensure clean water and sanitation, strengthen community-based organizations and educate new generations of girls and women.

The series was filmed in many different locations around southern B.C. (originally) but made it’s home at Bridge Studios right across the Street from the Accent Inn Burnaby hotel. Although the Accent Inn never had the opportunity to host either of the Stars, the General Manager and staff met many of the “villains”, if you can call monsters and aliens villains. I myself even had the opportunity to meet one of the actors staying at the Burnaby hotel, who thanks to very cool make-up, played two completely different “creatures” in two different episodes.
