With the sun shining brighter, the days getting longer, and summer not too far away, there’s no time like the present to enjoy a little tranquility and relaxation in one of Vancouver’s many beaches or parks.
Celtic Illusion, the show for all ages that cleverly fuses awe-inspiring contemporary Irish Dance with mind-blowing magic and Grand Illusions, is coming back to Canada and we’re giving away tickets.

On June 1, 2019, Canada’s rules for piloting drones are set to change, and while the new rules include new regulatory steps, including pilot certification and drone registration, they also make flying a drone simpler in a few key ways as well.
Rick Mercer finished 15 seasons of the Rick Mercer Report this week, and I’m going to miss him, but I also can’t help but be excited to see what he does next. He also made a great point in his final rant for the show, and it really got me excited about Canada.

“It’s been an incredible journey,” director Andrew Cividino admits. Ever since his film Sleeping Giant debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, it’s been very well received everywhere its been, from the Toronto International Film Festival, to the 29 countries and 45 festivals where it screened around the world. Then, the indie success story topped itself thanks to Toronto audiences who recently helped the film earn North America’s highest film per screen average during its opening weekend.
