Happy Victoria Day, everyone! We love this May-long weekend for so many reasons – it signals the beginning of warm weather in Canada, and it is steeped with history that still impacts our lives today.

Share your favourite Victoria Day activities with us on our social media pages or in the comments of our podcast here on WordPress or in the episode comments on iTunes or Soundcloud.

Enjoy the Episode!
