Travel columnist Kim Grey

When it comes to Canadians, one thing we know for sure is that we love to travel in our own backyards. In fact, 80 per cent of the tourism dollars spent in Canada are spent by Canadians. Kim Gray is editor-in-chief of Toque & Canoe, an award-winning Canadian travel blog. This summer, she's sharing her Canadian Travel Bucket list with us, here on NXNW. You can find out about her next must-see destination this Sunday at 7:15.

It's built around the stories of British Columbians who have been touched by World War 1.

You can hear that conversation after the 7:30am news Sunday

Square dance caller Paul Silveria

There are plenty of ways to spend an evening in Vancouver: great restaurants, great music, great theatre, all of the usual suspects. But, one option that you may have overlooked is a good, old-time square dance. 

Paul Silveria is a seasoned square dance caller who presides over dances throughout the Pacific Northwest. His alter ego, Professor Banjo, performs a spirited live show for children.

Paul stopped by the studio to share his enthusiasm for all things old-time with guest host Margaret Gallagher.
