Cheering in Downtown Vancouver

One of my most cherished memories of the 2010 Winter Olympics hosted in Vancouver is the thousands upon thousands of citizens and visitors who gathered and celebrated our athletes' accomplishments on Granville Street in Downtown Vancouver. ‎Almost eight years later, I can still recall how loudly proud Canadians, wearing face paint and dressed in red and white like we ‎do on Canada Day, were cheering. It was the sound that the whole world heard and it came from Downtown Vancouver.

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!
