As we embark upon Canada’s big birthday, the celebratory line up is more extravagant than ever. Time to pull out your red and white to check out some of our region’s best Canada Day events.

I was attending a tourism conference in this southwest Ontario city in mid-spring and walked into a large, industrial space in the Old East Village Area of town.

Past that was a lovely, bright grocery store selling lots of local foods and organic products.
