    The Lost Golden Boot of Leechtown

    The Lost Golden Boot of Leechtown

    Hello and Welcome to Nothing Ever Happens in Canada, but we know this is simply not true! I'm Canadian Girl, thanks for stoping by today so I can let you know where off to next.
    We're off to explore an abandoned mining town that was once so busy it was a concern, it just might take Victoria right off the map. Miners from all over came in search of the next BIG gold strike along the Leech River.
    We will also learn about secret stash of long lost gold that just may be hiding in a knee high boot with a frying pan on top for a lid. Joing me next week as we go searching for the long lost golden boot of Leechtown.

    The Legend of Smoker and his Poisonous Smoke

    The Legend of Smoker and his Poisonous Smoke

    Hello and Welcome to Nothing Ever Happens in Canada, but we know this is simply not true! I'm Canadian Girl, thanks for joining me today on our next adventure. We're going to look at a legend out of Newfoundland and Labrador. We'll meet a very nasty and some say very violent man known as Smoker, a notorious bootlegger who seemed to always disappear into the snow just before being caught. A man who's poisonous hooch was known to cause blindness and even death, yet his price was too good for the locals to pass up. He then made a bargin to pay for his ways, leaving him and his dogs, roaming the trails for eternity in search of lost travellers. Join me now as we head to most NE province in Canada and find out what really happened with the legend of Smoker and his very poisonous hooch known as Smoke.

Fascinated!

Great stories told by a lovely cute voice. Way more goes on in Canada than you might imagine and this show is a great way to get informed on those things. When you're in the mood to let your mind wander and learn a few things, about Canada, this is the show to listen to. Highly recommended!
