BC Day – is it just another long weekend?

Monday, August 6th, 2012

BC Flag

For some people BC Day (Aug 6, 2012) is just another excuse for a long summer weekend.  But for many, it means much more than that.

People who grew up in BC may sometimes take this province for granted but for those of us who are here by choice, it is really a very special place.  We came here for many reasons but no matter the reason, most of us are totally enthralled by the weather, the natural beauty, the diversity of the population and the healthy lifestyle. Whether we moved from the East Coast, the Middle East or the Far East – British Columbia is special in so many ways.

Anybody who has ever visited BC goes away with tales of the beauty of the mountains, the ocean and the parks. But for those of us who live here, there is a great deal more to celebrate.  We may get used to living in such amazing beauty.  We may even complain about the weather. But given the choice most of us would not live anywhere else. (more…)
