From vivid landscapes to vibrant history, the wild west springs alive in southern Alberta


Katharine Fletcher

“Did you know that the Sundance Kid worked here at Bar U Ranch?” While driving a team of black Percheron horses around the National Historic Site, an hour-and-a-half south of Calgary, Dan Wilson regaled a wagonload of visitors with stories. “Whenever the Northwest Mounted Police would drop by, The Kid would disappear, saying something about a fence to fix.”

At the turn of the last century, Bar U was internationally renowned for its purebred Percheron draft horses and cattle. Today, the sprawling ranch commemorates the heritage of the Canadian ranching industry.

Waterton Lakes National Park: Avion Ridge


Katharine Fletcher

“Do heights bother you?” asked Alpine Stables’ horse expedition guide Josh Watson? “If not, let’s ride the horses up to Avion Ridge.”

No, heights don’t bother me or my husband Eric Fletcher, so off we went, climbing more than 720 metres to reach this windswept, talus ridge—on horseback! We were in Waterton Lakes National Park, located four hours south of Calgary, in Alberta.

La Révolte du Chef Pontiac


Pontiac, également appelé Pondiak ou Pondiag par les Français et Obwandiyag par les Outaouais, est un personnage historique important dans l'histoire de l'Amérique du Nord. À cette époque où la Nouvelle-France, conquise, déchue et abandonnée, semblait perdue à jamais, un seul homme semblait être encore prêt à se battre pour elle. Cet homme, c'est le célèbre chef Pontiac.

Québec's Fête nationale: No Chasse Galérie This Time, Just Stephen Harper Being Mean


Practically everything is closed in Quebec today, except pharmacies and a few corner stores. St. Jean Baptiste Day, the Fête nationale, is one of the two or three holidays when this province shuts down. There will be parades, open air shows (despite a forecast of rain) and many local parties.

But no MPs from Quebec will be here to join in the festivities because they're all stuck in Ottawa, . . .
