Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews By-The-Sea

This summer my family took a road trip to New Brunswick for a little vacation, visiting with my father, and exploring the province for a few days. It was such a great trip, driving over 3,000 km from Toronto to Saint John, and back again that I had to make a video.

If I had the chance, some day I would love to spend the summer at a cabin or in an RV somewhere. Every year I look forward to summer vacation, and nothing really beats getting out of the city for a few days to one of Ontario's incredible forests, nestled along a lake somewhere.

Give me the open road, a reliable car, and some time with my family, and I'm a very happy guy, especially when I get to drive to the east coast from a little time away.

2020 Ford Escape

The 2020 Ford Escape is going to turn a lot of heads when it arrives this fall. Last week, Ford …

When you think about Ford, a lot of vehicles may come to mind--and there are definitely some impressive cars, trucks, and SUVs this year at the Canadian International Auto Show--but what about technology?

The Best of 2018

Time for a little celebration dance, because 2018 was an incredible year for The GATE. And, yes, this may be a little late, but since I'm proud of all the highlights from last year, it's taken me a while to write it all up.

Aisha and I with our apple pie | Ford Harvest event

October is one of my favorite times of the year. I love sweater weather, I adore Halloween, and Thanksgiving weekend is one of my favorite excuses to cook a great big meal for my family and be thankful for what we have while spending time together.

W. Andrew Powell is BULLIT

Bullitt was an iconic classic film starring Steve McQueen and featuring an incredible co-star, the 1968 Ford Mustang fastback. Now, Ford is honouring that classic car, and the film, with the brand new Mustang Bullitt, and I had a chance to get behind the wheel and drive away (okay, not really) for a few minutes at the Canadian International Auto Show.

Chicago's Cloud Gate

Look at where a year took us! At the start of 2017, it seemed like 2016 was going to be hard to top. In 2016 I visited Hong Kong, L.A. for Hamilton Watch's Behind the Camera Awards, and I had a lot of really incredible interviews. But 2017 topped all of my expectations.

Fogo Island Inn

Canada is breathtaking. From coast to coast to coast, and along the border, Canada is a place of discovery, and even for those of us who live here, there are new adventures around every corner. In the fall, my family and I had a trip of a lifetime when we drove a 2017 Ford Edge from St. John's, Newfoundland to the stunning Fogo Island, and stayed at the Fogo Island Inn.

There is an island on the edge of Canada that is unlike anywhere else in this beautiful country, and it's my new happy place. Fogo Island is just a short ferry ride from Farewell, Newfoundland, but it feels like it's a world away from anything else that you know. The quiet, serene island is a perfect balance of earth and sea, inhabited by kind, welcoming people, and filled with wonders that are often as simple as they are moving.

Mini pumpkins | September highlights

After the film festival has rolled up all the red carpets, I feel like I can usually breathe a sigh of relief and get down to the serious business of enjoying September and fall. It takes a little time after TIFF to really settle down, because there is a lot of content to deal with after the festival, but then I really feel like I can get into my favorite season.

Put me in a car, with the open road, and I may be just about the happiest guy around. My family and I went on a road trip, from Toronto to Sault Ste. Marie, and we drove a 2017 Ford Flex on an adventure that included parks, beaches, bugs, science, history, and a lot of fun together in our amazing province. It was a getaway that showed off why road trips can be so much fun, and why Ontario is such an incredible place to live.
