I have been physically present in every province, but to be perfectly honest we just drove right through Saskatchewan and Manitoba. I haven't been in any Territories.

I'm just missing the Yukon and Nunavut. But I've visited all ten provinces (multiple times), and the NWT (though only once).

I'm in Quebec and I've been to Ontario, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.

I remember my first time in British Columbia. I was on a bus tour with a bunch of orchestra friends on a trip. We were staying in Banff, and we visited Banff National Park and surrounding areas in the bus. At one point, the bus went into British Columbia, and I hadn't been expecting that, and I thought, Cool, I'm in a province I didn't know I'd be visiting!

A few years later I went to Vancouver for a week to play in a band made up of musicians from across Canada. It was a wonderful experience.

They say music can take you places - and it has.

There are many places in Canada I'd like to go to, and that my lack of a car doesn't prevent me from going to. Maybe time to make a bucket list?

I haven't been to New Brunswick, PEI or the Yukon. Covered the rest in some fashion, though. I've given thought to doing a Grand Tour of the Prairies in the Summer at some point and visit as many "World's Largest" type things as possible. For example, the Happy Rock in Gladstone, MB, the giant Komarno,MB mosquito and the Andrew, AB Mallard. FWIW, I've seen those three but I think it would be a fun way to see this part of the country.

We've got a giant orange in Montreal. And a fairly large milk bottle.

I was born in New Brunswick, have lived in Newfoundland and Ontario, and have repeatedly visited Nova Scotia and PEI. West of Ontario, I've only been to Alberta for a couple of weeks on vacation.

Two years ago to the day, the new Wawa Goose was unveiled. If that isn't worth travelling a few thousand kilometers to see, I don't know what it is. Well, actually, I do know what it: the southern #17 route along north shore of Superior -- it really is worth traveling a long way to visit.

If you don't mind a mind numbing drive, then take the #11 northern route, where you'll get to look at the Beardmore Snowman. Although it doesn't have any feet (it's a snowman after all), it's about 35 feet high, which will be enhanced if you are hallucinating after such a long drive.

As you get closer to The West, duck down into Kenora, where back in the way-back Ontario and Manitoba police fought in the Rat Potage War, but not as allies. Yes, they fought against each other. Kenora has mellowed since then and is a lovely old town on the water. On the way into town you'll be welcomed by the Kenora Spider, which started life as an air-cooled VW Bug, but had aspirations.

I used to live in Winnipeg and my GF's parents had a cottage just east of Falcon Lake on the Ontario side. I'm well acquainted with Kenora! It's one of the reasons I don't drink Budweiser any more (Two for one Bud night, and a Hawaiian pizza combined with a night of dancing make for a long trip back to the cabin...) When I drove my boys to see my parents in 2005 we took the 17 and I broke down in Thunder Bay, so we got to see the sleeping giant, Kekabeka Falls, and the Terry Fox Memorial. Once we were back on the road we stayed overnight at the Sportsman's Lodge in Wawa.

Das Glasperlenspiel, any idea where you will be staying? If you've looked at what our city has to offer ahead of time, is there any place in Lethbridge you'd like to meet?
Spoons, Cat Whisperer and Dread, I will likely be staying at the Sandman and I have no clue where that is in relation to anywhere else so I will trust my fellow Dopers to choose an appropriate watering hole. I like a good pub. Wednesday is just fine with me if everyone else is good with it.

Which Sandman? There are two in our city; one on Mayor Magrath, and the other on Scenic Drive.

If it's the one on Scenic Drive, I can think of a few good places within walking distance.

Okay, you are practically in downtown. As I recall, there is a nice lounge in the hotel, but like I said, there are a few nice places within a few minutes' walk. I'll speak with Cat and Jimbo, and we'll come up with something suitable.

Do you know the exact dates that you will be in town?

You missed seeing a Gutenberg Bible in the Mennonite Village in Steinbach, MB, and Al Caponeís tunnels in Moose Jaw, SK. 😊

The giant moose in Moose Jaw, and the jaw-droppingly huge dump truck in Sparwood, BC.

Oh yeah, there’s also Batoche in northern Sask, and one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen on Lake Winnipeg (Grand Beach). And the geographical centre of Canada on Highway #1 in MB. And the Royal Mint in Winnipeg. ��

It might be considerably north of the Trans Canada, but I don't think I've ever heard Batoche described as being in northern Saskatchewan before.

When you grow up in the Cannington area, it's all northern Saskatchewan.

Roughly halfway between Regina and Saskatoon on highway 11, but I know nothing of any coffee pot of note.

I've been through Davidson a bunch shuttling between Winnipeg and Cold Lake and I don't ever remember seeing a giant coffee pot unless you count the ones at the Husky

It's right on Highway 11. It's been on a Canada Post stamp and everything. You sure you've not been on auto-pilot when you drive to Regina?

Well, like all people from Saskatchewan I'm entirely sure that I have been on autopilot driving past Davidson. I mean, it's not like the speed limit changes or anything like at thrice-cursed Chamberlain. So I just street-viewed my way past Davidson and sure enough, there's a big coffeepot next to the north entrance. Huh. Now, of course, it'd be blazingly obvious every time I go by and I'll be baffled as to how I never saw it before.

I consider anything north of Saskatoon Northern Saskatchewan, but you're right - it is not nearly as far north as I remember it.

Still to far south, imho. You're not in northern Sask until you're past Meadow Lake or Waskesui. La Ronge is northern Saskatchewan. Nipawin isn't.

Regina is getting refugees from forest fires in the Thunder Bay area.

You okay, Muffin?

And, I would have thought they'd be evacuated to Winnipeg, since it's closer. Does that mean Winnipeg already has a lot of fire refugees? Apparently if Regina runs out of space, the authorities plan to evacuate new refugees to Saskatoon.

Feel very sorry for them all. Complete disruption of their daily lives, plus possibility their homes might burn.

There are many fires north and north east of Winnipeg. Many of the fires north east of Winnipeg are closer to Winnipeg than Thunder Bay.

North Western Ontario is pretty much full up with fire evacuees, so Winnipeg has been pitching in. Now it looks like some evacuees will be heading even further west.

It is heart warming to see communities help out, but the simple fact of the matter is that usually only regional centres have capacity to host significant numbers of fire refugees, so sometimes there is a diaspora.

I very much hope that no communities are lost in the fires.

No worries for myself, for although I live in the bush, it is on the outskirts of Thunder Bay, where we's gots water bombers a plenty. When I moved to my present digs, my insurance company wanted to know how far my place was from a fire hydrant. I replied: "There are no fire hydrants anywhere near here, but a few days ago a water bomber extinguished a burning truck."

I understand they're using the residences at U of Regina and say that they've got plenty of staff and volunteers to make it work, but there's only so much space. That's why they're lining up Saskatoon and U of S.

My thanks to the Lethbridge Dopers, Spoons, Cat Whisperer and the Dread Pirate Jimbo! I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Owl - good food, good beer and great conversation! It's always great to meet another Doper IRL! I hope to see any or all of you in Ottawa some day.

I am now back in Ottawa, sweltering in the heat and trying to make sense of all the notes I took!

I go to Ottawa occasionally on business. I may be there for a meeting in November. Will post here if it starts to look likely - would love to meet some Otta-Dopers!
