|Subject: Re: Planning - need some help regarding Canada|
Driving across Canada will take some time. It's about 3000
Toronto to Vancouver. It will take you about two days just
to get from
Toronto to Winnipeg and then you have to drive across the Prairies
over the mountains to get to British Columbia. So, while you
a lot, you will be in your car for many hours of each day.
travel in this country is expensive but you won't have hotel
the days when you are crossing Canada.
My suggestion would be to spend a week in the Toronto area, fly from Toronto to Calgary and then drive across the mountains to Vancouver.
You could easily take a week to do this by stopping off in places such as Banff, Jasper, Revelstoke, Kamloops and Kelowna. The Okanagan Valley in British Columbia can occupy two days. Then you'll have some time for Vancouver and could take the ferry to Vancouver Island for a day or so.

Good luck with your planning. Lucy, Toronto
