    Ottawa Sports & Outdoors

    Truly the most absurdly located NHL building imaginable - at the extreme west end of Ottawa beyond the suburbs. Why? When most new arenas were being constructed in city centres during the 1990s, Ottawa's new arena was not following suit. I believe the biggest reason for this was to be more than 120 miles from the Bell Centre in Montreal. I hope in...

    There is quite the choice of spectator sports in Winnipeg. The Blue Bombers (Canadian football), the Moose (hockey, the AHL) and the Goldeyes (baseball, Northern League). It is too bad that the city lost the Winnipeg Jets NHL hockey team, but at the prices of the tickets, it was inevitable. What I don't understand is that we have lost a basketball...

    Mount Norquay is a great skiing destination. I thought I'd just mention a couple of cool features you can ski right to the base of the mountain where you can stay at the Timberline Inn so that is convenient and the rooms are affordable there. I remember the road was winding to get to the ski lifts and my picture is on that road of some mountain...

    Lake Louise is a nice lake for canoeing. There we go . This is late June and there was a slight breeze off of the mountains , so it was cool . The water is around 1 deg. C ( 34 deg. F ) so you do not want to capsize the canoe. It took an hour to paddle the length of the lake and back . You will notice that there are few boats on the lake . Canoes...

    A fun thing to do in the winter in Toronto is going skating on one of the outside skating rinks. This one I saw at the Toronto Harbour. Wow, it was so busy, but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves a lot. There is some music playing to add to the atmosphere :-) The skating rink is open 7 days a week, 10 a.m.- 10 p.m., weather permitting of course...

    I had never had the chance to see a Canadian Football League game before so I couldn't pass it up. Though people were certainly into the game, it was more comfortable and affordable than the NFL. A bus takes you from the subway right to Percival-Molson Stadium, which was a very nice field. It did seem weird watching football and hearing all the...

Nothing to it, especially if you are with some friends and plenty...
