Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is a 27-acre wilderness adventure destination tucked away in the district of North Vancouver in British Columbia. Its main feature is a beautiful suspension bridge that stretches 450 feet across a massive canyon in the deep of the woodland.
Since it was built in 1889, the bridge has been crossed by millions of daring visitors from all the world. The park is especially busy during the Christmas holidays, when the entire area is transformed into a winter wonderland with hundreds of thousands of colourful lights.
But there several other things to explore at the park aside from the Capilano Suspension Bridge — there's also a Treetops Adventure on site, which consists of a series of seven suspension bridges attached to eight, 30-ton, 250-year-old Douglas-firs. The attraction has won awards for its incredible design, which allows the trees to continue growing despite being attached to them.
Visitors can walk freely between viewing platforms attached to a special tree collar system that uses no nails or bolts that would harm the trees. The bridges go as high as 110 feet above the forest floor and the views from the top are nothing short of spectacular. You can choose to explore the area on your own, or join a guided nature tour to learn more about the park as you go along.
After you've strolled through the Treetops Adventure, you can also go on a Cliffwalk around a granite edge above the Capilano River, explore the Story Centre, or walk on boardwalk trails that cut through the nearby rainforest.
Admission is $43 per adultand all attractions are included in that price. Visit Capilano Suspension Bridge Park this year and try out the Treetops Adventure!
On Sunday morning, May 16, Pastor Henry Hildebrandt led a service outside of the church at 10:30 a.m. The Church of God at Aylmer posted on Facebook the building "may be locked, but our God deserves all honour, glory, and praise."
A live stream was posted to YouTube and its Facebook page, which CBC News reports had 200 to 250 churchgoers present at the service without masks. In a court ruling on Friday, Ontario Superior Court Justice Bruce Thomas instructed that the church remain closed until the provincial government permits public indoor gatherings at a 30% occupancy rate.
Pastor Hildebrandt apparently commented on the locked doors during his sermon, saying that churchgoers are at the service today "because we have the authority of God on our side."
David Musyj, CEO of Windsor Regional Hospital, reached out to the Public Health Agency of Canada to push for the ability for residents to travel to Detroit, MI, to receive a vaccine dose, or to have excess vaccinations be sent up to Windsor.
We’re still waiting to hear back on @WRHospital’s proposal to @GovCanHealth to allow Windsor to receive vaccine sup… https://t.co/hWJIWfUNaH
In an email sent to Narcity, Musyj confirmed anyone who travels to the U.S. for a vaccine may not have to quarantine for 14 days when they return as it is considered an "essential medical service or treatment."
PHAC wrote to Musyj saying travellers must provide certain documentation to border control when crossing.
Written evidence from a licensed Canadian healthcare practitioner that states medical services or treatments outside of the country are essential is required. A traveller also needs written evidence from a licensed health care practitioner in the U.S. to verify these services are able to be provided.
Anyone travelling to the U.S. for a vaccine must also ride in a private vehicle, have a vaccination appointment, and cannot stop for any other reason.
According to CTV News, Mayor Drew Dilkens proposed a motion at the city's council meeting Monday, May 17, asking the federal and provincial governments to work with public health officials in Detroit. He wants them to allow Windsor-Essex residents to "take advantage of numerous offers from U.S. officials to make surplus vaccines available to Canadians without a requirement to quarantine."
Mayor Dilkens is hoping Windsorites can have a "fully vaccinated" summer, instead of the one-dose summer that has been promised by the federal government.
