To celebrate Canada turning 150, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 (in Halifax, NS) will launch its Canada Day 1 exhibit on March 18th. I was very lucky to be allowed to take a peek at it while it was still being put together. I also got to interview museum’s curator, Dan Conlin, who gave me my own private tour and to meet one of the artists who colaborated on the exhibit, Charley Young.
Friend of the podcast and guest extraordinaire, Heather Pothier, is back to discuss dating in Canada. We talk about showing up to a date on a Zamboni, pre-internet dating, fancy dates in France, Valentine’s Day, Tim’s French Vanilla (of course!) and we come up with a million-dollar idea. All you need is love!
