    I'm pretty tired of this fabricated Newfoundland-Ireland thing. Truth be told, Newfoundland's roots are far more tied to England than Ireland.

    We moved here from St. John's two years ago mainly because of our children & grandchildren. The climate is an added bonus. We wouldn't move from Victoria for anything!

    Everything the Nichols say is true. However, one caveat for visitors to British Columbia's capital city: It can be quite expensive; this includes Butchart Gardens, tea at The Empress, and visiting the Provincial Museum, just to name three attractions.

    Also (because of the normally pleasant climate), it often seems that every down-and-out person in Canada eventually ends up here. Don't be surprised to see beggars on practically every downtown corner.

    With that in mind, Vancouver Island is nonetheless a wonderful holiday destination.
