So, where the hell is the beach?


There is nothing like a trip to Europe to remind Canadians about where so many of our place name came from.

We have London, Keswick and Paris in Ontario. Halifax and New Glasgow in Nova Scotia and New Westminster in B.C.

The prairies are no different, here in Saskatchewan we have town named after Stornoway, Stockholm and Runnymede and Manitoba has Killarney and Norway House but don't you think that Miami Manitoba is pushing it a bit far. No beach, no alligators, no CSI.

What were they thinking?
