More About Vancouver

We leave today for Northern Virginia. Taking the auto train from Stanford, Florida to Lorton, Virginia. As I said, over the next three weeks or so my posts may be spotty.

Lynn Johnston and her squeeze, Paul, hosted us in Vancouver. If you’re in Europe, you may not be familiar with her comic strip For Better or for Worse. It’s among the most widely circulated comic strips here in the States in the history of our business. Even though she’s retired, well over a thousand newspapers are reprinting her comics from the strip’s conception. Tomorrow more about Lynn and Paul.

    More information:
    “The Angel of Victory” was commission by Canadian Pacific Railway to commemorate the 1,115 CPR workers killed during the First World War. Created by Montreal sculptor Coeur de Lion McCarthy, it is located outside the former CPR station (now Waterfront Station) in downtown Vancouver.
