Hey, everyone. I am just working on a project for my site. I am trying to get a sense of what kinda cliches, trademarks, symbols, lankmarks, and reputations people associate with their individual provinces.

So, if you had to pick five things your province is "known for" what would they be?

I'll start with BC, where I live. I'd say the five things BC is associated with would be vast forrests, Marijuanna, wacky politics, Indian art, and skiing at the Whistler resort.

But I'm curious to hear what you would put for where you live.
