Canada 11: Victoria, BC

Canada  11: Victoria, BC

Located on the tip of Vancouver Island in the Canadian Province of British Columbia, Victoria is a modern city with architectural and historical ties to England. It boasts palatial structures and parliamentary buildings that rival its London counterparts, and its double-decker buses and customary "afternoon tea" are clear reminders of British cultural influence. In this program, Hosts Jake and Mieke de Boer take viewers on a whirlwind tour of one of North America's great cities. The tour starts at the Swift Sure Regatta in Victoria Bay, where over 250 yachts compete in the annual 132 mile racing event. The next stop is the Inner Harbor Causeway, one of historic Victoria's most recognizable features, which once functioned as a footbridge across James Bay. The tour then moves to Duncan, the site of the Native Heritage Center, where viewers see artisans from five native cultures making totem poles and authentic Indian sweaters. Then it's on to Market Square, a modern open-air market that was once the site of saloons and opium dens. After partaking in the traditional afternoon "tea and crumpets" at the Impress Hotel, the tour ends with a leisurely stroll through the expansive floral acres of Butchart Gardens. The viewer is left with an image of Victoria as a progressive cosmopolitan city, a city which justifiably calls itself "the friendliest city in North America." 02/08DE IJSCA 15 min.
