Boomtime Streetscape in Saskatoon

Saskatoon's downtown is the key to the identity of the city. I love 3rd Avenue and its streetscape of boomtime buildings of 1912. This must be the best boomtime streetscape in Saskatoon, if not in Western Canada. I have also enjoyed leading tours of downtown buildings and point out the fossils in the Tyndall limestone - on a safari in Saskatoon!

A spectacular Canada 150 celebration in Ottawa

A spectacular Canada 150 celebration in Ottawa

The Downtown core of Ottawa is always bursting with life.  This past summer, as Ottawa celebrated Canada150, it put on a spectacular show including a fire breathing mechanical dragon and spider. Another memory to add to the list of why I love Downtown Ottawa. #iBelongDowntown because it leaves me feeling fulfilled and excited!

Always learning something new in Vancouver

Always learning something new in Vancouver

When I’m in downtown Vancouver I feel like I’m in a new country. It is a different place depending on the time or day. During work hours everywhere you look you will see a sea of professionals, in the evening it is a place where people come to relax and hang out with loved ones to share their diverse cultures, and interests. Everytime I go downtown, I return having learned something new.
