Hope that every one of you is warm, safe, and surrounded by loved ones. May the stress of the season subside, and the joy of the season prevail!

Merry Christmas VV

Santa set to arrive in Victoria

By Robert Randall • Published on Friday, December 24, 2010

Santa Claus and his magical reindeer are due to arrive in Victoria in a few hours and officials from the City of Victoria are ready to welcome the jolly old elf to the capital city.

In fact, only a few routine pieces of paperwork need to be completed before Saint Nick can complete his task of bringing toys for the region’s boys and girls.

Is it just me or did Hillside Mall not have their usual string of Christmas lights up around Bolen Books?

Come to think of it, I haven't seen many Christmas lights up at all this year.

I too have noticed less christmas lights this year.

I'm sure somehow it's the new Wal-Mart's fault.

Huh...what do you know--truth is stranger than fiction!

News Release
Minister Kenney reaffirms Santa’s citizenship during special citizenship ceremony in Calgary


Santa Claus a Canadian, immigration minister reaffirms

While the event was marked by a note of Christmas cheer, the serious implication contained in Mr. Kenney’s remarks is that the North Pole is part of Canadian territory, something the minister touched on.

“The Government continues to invest in measures that exercise Canada’s sovereignty and create more economic opportunities in the North,” he said.

When asked who decided that Santa was in fact Canadian, the minister responded: “We are just stating the facts. You know, Santa lives in the Arctic North and that is Canadian territory. So when he comes to visit Canadian boys and girls, he doesn’t have to go through the CBSA border clearance.”

This thread was started 8 years ago. We are still going strong thanks to the excellent contributions from you...our readers and our members.

May the holiday season make you smile. May your friends and loved ones be close to your heart, especially the ones that are no longer with us.

For what we are about to receive over this holiday season, let us truly be grateful, and let us always be mindful of the needs of others.

Merry Christmas Victoria.
