Break out the barbecues, grab the family and head to the beach. At least that’s how we roll over here on the North Shore on Canada Day. Those of us lucky enough to live here had more than a few celebrations to choose from including West Vancouver’s John Lawson Park, North Vancouver’s Waterfront and more. Morning parades, kids activities, live music, outdoor food and lots of flag waving were seen in parks all over. Happy 146th Birthday Canada!

04 – As part of this weekend’s ceremonies, West Vancouver’s Sarah McLachlan is honoured at the 98th Annual Kiwanis International Convention with the service organization’s highest award — the 2013 World Service Medal – for her dedication to music education. Congrats Sarah!
