Last Saturday, I went to see Made in Canada at the Hall – it was a great show. Not only was it all Canadian but it was funny, witty and performed by great local talent. There was a commitment and pure dedication, and a proud-to-be-Canadian attitude that shone through. Executed by the Coast Characters, this show was a winner. Watch for future shows by this group, and make sure to attend. They deserve our support.

That’s it for this week. Let’s hear from you for next week. Call 604-885-2282 or email
