In our Opinion: Explore home

Take some time to explore our beautiful province.

For most of us, long weekends look the same.

It’s an extra day to kick back, unwind and enjoy ourselves before another week rears its head. Hopefully, this past weekend you got the chance to explore parts of British Columbia that you’ve never experienced.

If you were fortunate enough to watch The Amazing Race Canada last week, either at the Lester Centre gathering or at home, you got to see just how beautiful our area of the province is.

Destination BC president Marsha Walden described the northwest coast as the “epitome” of what B.C. is supposed to be (“lush rainforests, monumental mountains and curious, collaborative communities”). While most longtime Rupertites know quite well what the area has to offer, there are many new to town who don’t. Give ’em a hand.

Heck, more than half of the Northern View office consists of Canadians not born in B.C.

It’s through long weekends that we can check out what the wilderness in our backyard has to offer. This area looks like a straight-up travel brochure. Let’s take advantage.
