Description 31 - WinterCity

Sitting smack in front of a space heater, I talk about what's great and not-so-great about winter in Canada, then check out how Toronto does its damndest to celebrate it, with help from The Bicycles, some Royal Conservatory of Music bassoon players, and lots of people of stilts.

From what I understand, the pre-eminent winter festival in this country is Carnaval de Qu├ębec. It is HUGE. Okay, so Ottawa has Winterlude with the skating on the canal and the Beaver Tails and stuff. But do they have Bonhomme? No stay-puff marshmallow man voyageur snowman mascot? Then I rest my case.

Then again, can Bonhomme play bassoon?

Uh...yeah, I guess he probably can.
