Hip Guide to Canada
Canada is a land of wealth and natural beauty, with one of the highest standards of living in the world. Canada stretches from the Atlantic in the east to the Pacific out west, and its border with the United States is the longest in the world, and to the north is the Arctic Ocean. That’s how big Canada is!

The city is not as well known as a hippie haven as Lotusland (Vancouver, B.C.) because Edmonton is in Canada’s most conservative province. There is a hippy community in the Whyte Avenue or Old Strathcona area, however. The “Two Guys With Pipes” store is a popular destination for hemp enthusiasts. Lots of mellowing out during the Fringe Festival every summer.
Particularly Gabriola, Hornby and Cortes. Enchanted, laid-back, new-age.
Hornby Island does in fact have hippies. However, the island has become overcrowded and increasingly slick and commercial. Not so “groovy” now.
Cortes Island, which is rather remote and is a pleasant looking place, was inundated by marine radiation dumps from government ships about 30 years ago before pollution regulations were enforced. Many people on this island have developed cancer as a result of this, including the majority of the local police department who regularly patrol the area. Under no conditions, would I ever choose to live there, as a hippy.
