The Canada Top Ten Issue of Saturday’s National Post
As Reading Toronto followers know, I also write the occasional story on architecture and urban design for the National Post. I tend not to say much about that newspaper here. It would be too much like work if you know what I mean. There is no connection between RT and the Post - just in case you wondered - in spite of the fact that I also run my Post articles on RT.

With that preamble out of the way, I wanted to compliment the Post's Canada Day coverage in this Saturday's paper. The "Canada's Top Ten" stories were a pleasure to read. From the top ten reasons to immigrate to Canada, written in 1864, to the ten most interesting places to spend a night, the paper was the perfect holiday weekend reading companion.

Did you know you can spend a night in the Vancouver Aquarium? Neither did I. How about the recipe for a perfect hot weather drink: Cucumber melon water with mint and lime - the Four Seasons Hotels serves this in its spas. Then there is Nova Scotia's thriving wineries. Who knew? Occasional RT contributor Kelvin Browne along with Nicky Eaton offered their top ten garden favourites. Peonies are number one. Even the Financial Post ran top ten stories. Most interesting was the "Industries Under Attack." One hint: Get out of junk food.

Congratulations to the editors for this effort. What was your Canada Day long weekend reading?
