Except for a couple of sojourns to the Caribbean, I spent the entire year's travels within Canada, exploring its abundance of wonders.

If you've spent any time in P.E.I. of late, perhaps you've witnessed the placards and bumper stickers posted everywhere pleading, "STOP PLAN B." A brief synopsis of the sordid tale is that essentially the Federal Government told little old P.E.I. they've got millions of dollars set aside for us if we agree to a realignment of a teensy portion of the Trans Canada Highway. The only catch is that we've gotta pay for some of it too.

Mount Stewart, Prince Edward Island -- Olympic moments happen across this country on a daily basis.
