What I love about Canada
To me Canada is the sort of place you wished the whole world was like. Canada has a history, culture, beautiful countryside, and a very civilised, peace loving community.
One of my first gir freind;s that I met in Sydney was visiting from Vancouver.
I always kind of wondered how my life might have tuned out had I pursued her back to Canada. I was gobsmacked by her beauty outwardly and inwardly. Anyway it was not to be.
I was very keen on Snow Skiing in the 1980's. I always hoped to visit the snowfields of Canada. i just knew it would be an experience to forever treasure.
I still have a trip to a Canadian skiing right up there on my Bucket List.
One thing I really love is the Toronto to Vancouver railway which stretches across some of the most beautiful and breathtaking country in the world. On such a trip you will be in awe at probably the most spectacular scenery you will find anywhere. Look you can go on the Orient Express you can go on the Ghan in Australia but for me there is only one rail if you have only one choice that is the Toronto to Vancouver rail.
It has been reported that Canada is the only country in the world with a constitution linking its formation to the building of a railway line. According to historical evidence British Columbia threatened to join the United States if it was not given its own rail line. The Canadian Government heard the message and 4,000 miles of railroad were built across the nation from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Since then, trains have played a pivotal part in Canada's history. Today, VIA Rail line continues the traditional passenger rail service of CN and CPR Railways of bringing Canadians closer together at the same time the journey offers views of spectacular beauty of the countryside to passengers.
the Corridor Trains cover VIA's busiest routes, between
Quebec City and Windsor by way of Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto,
affordable downtown to downtown service.
Additionally pay-per-use wireless
internet (wi-fi) service is now available on all trains within the
Quebec City corridor.
