The Canada Is Awesome network has websites and social media extensions in Vancouver, Squamish, Calgary and Toronto, with many more on the horizon. Our goal is simple: we let people know about all of the awesome things that make their Canadian cities great, despite the bad. I'm the founder of this network and each week in this What's Awesome post I bring you the top stories from each of our properties, giving you access to the best of our content all in one place.

Comedian Kyle Kinane was turned away at customs. For the organizers of the festival, it doesn’t matter what happens at this point, they always get to say “At least its not flooding”. I spent most of my time at the Hi-Fi Club shooting a recap video for them, chronicling the amazing time at Sled.

Winners for 2014 Trillium Book Awards Announced

I don’t suppose we could’ve chosen a better weekend to head up to Whistler than this past one, as the resort municipality experienced an insane snowfall (more than two feet) over the span of our trip. We’ll get to the winter activities in the next post but for now it’s all about the accommodations at Nita Lake Lodge.
