I have spent more of my life there than anywhere else. I have had the pleasure of seeing quite a bit of this amazing province because I was a touring actor in a childrens' theatre company where we did a six-month tour. We performed for schools all over the interior and as far north as the Alaskan panhandle. We even went to some communities with no roads, you had to fly in by float plane (packing set, props and costumes along!!).
