This weekend is Canada Day weekend where pyrotechnics lighting up the summer night sky. Do not forget to catch the last shows of the Jazz festival before it end. And is there anything more summery than Free Outdoor Movies, launching in Stanley Park, July 3.
To celebrate one of the biggest days in Canada, INTERNeX has decided to invite everyone for a day on the beach, if the weather permits it of course, but don’t worry we have a backup plan. For now we will just hope that the weather will be spectacular
