TRUE NORTH STRONG AND FREE



BC is a part of the True North Strong and Free
Where ever you look , you see wilderness.
Wild flowers, Wild grasses, wild plains and lakes.
One can still feel the excitement, freedom and fear that our forefathers felt,
Seeing something totally breath takingly pristine and untouched ,
Cool breezes from snowy mountain peaks
touched their cheeks, while a scorching sun hit their backs.
Nothing changed there.
With the cheeky coons, beaver and squirrels visiting,
as well as the odd , wide pawed bear and snarling cougar,
one can almost understand why man has a call
for the wild.
It is here, facing the elements, that one finds his
true self worth and understands what true love means.
True love, once found, can never be walked away from.
There are no lies here, for you either learn to survive or die.
Every tree, stone and mist has a story to tell.
and no one can tell it better.

We call this place, the True North Strong and Free.
One needs to be strong to survive and free to be able to move from one place to another
as the buffalo and caribou do.

There is no place like it anywhere and there never will be.

George /Mama Zen -

It's so easy to do because it's true.
We live here and never seem to have time to see our beautiful province as
visitors do. But when they come and experience it, they all leave supurbly enriched.:)
