From http://bcfarmsandfood.com/ - This video shows the artisan craft of sea salt harvesting. On Vancouver Island, Jeff Abel of Saltwest Naturals demonstrates how to harvest sea salt using steam evaporation and a unique solar evaporation process. Saltwest is one of a handful of artisan sea salt producers in Canada, and is the only commercial solar sea salt harvester in Western Canada. Using large steam evaporation kettles, the salt harvestry produces artisan flaked fleur de sel, a mineral-rich sea salt with distinctive irregular crystals and a crunchy texture. Flaked sea salt is prized as a finishing salt, which adds flavor to vegetables, eggs, fish and meat, as well as to chocolate and caramel. Saltwest also harvests solar sea salt, a rarity in Canada and the Pacific Northwest, where the...
Ed Kean used to catch fish. Now he hunts and harvests icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland. Kean does good business selling the huge chunks of ice he harvests. His customers include breweries and distilleries, such as a major Canadian vodka producer. They all want iceberg water because of its purity.

Each spring, the Canadian government authorizes its commercial fishing industry to kill hundreds of thousands of baby seals. They are impaled on hooks, dragged across the ice and cut open—and their pelts are often stockpiled in a warehouse. Our Protect Seals team works year-round to shut down the commercial sealing industry—our Canadian seafood boycott has grown worldwide, we are successfully helping to close global markets for seal pelts, and we are urging Prime Minister Harper to shut down the industry for good with a federal buyout.

Historical archival footage of the places and highlights of one of the greatest train journeys in the world, a trip across Canada from sea to sea on the Trans-Canada Limited, Canada's fastest transcontinental train. The Trans-Canada Limited was considered as one of the world's finest trains in its time. The concept of this train was that of a de luxe ‘Hotel-on-Wheels.' It was the world's longest-distance all-first-class sleeper train, with the fastest time across the North American continent from one ocean to the other. The Trans-Canada Limited was operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway. It was inaugurated in 1919, just after World War I, and lasted until 1930. As a result of the economic depression following the great Stock Market Crash of October 1929, it was cancelled in 1931. As ...
First successful test of a sea-to-land missile strike by the Royal Canadian Navy. Recently, HMCS Vancouver made history as it became the first modernized Canadian frigate to successfully test surface-to-surface missiles against a shore-based target, utilizing the Harpoon Block II surface-to-surface missiles. This is the first time in history the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) has exercised such a surface-to-surface missile launch capability. The launches were part of a Joint Littoral Training Exercise (JoLTEX.) JoLTEX 16 is a training exercise that was recently completed by the RCN at a United States Navy missile firing range off the coast of California. The Exercise was held from March 30 to April 1, 2016. The capability is designed to fill a need for Coastal Target Suppression, what the milit...
Conducting helicopter operations from Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) ships is a complex and dangerous procedure requiring the highest degree of safety. Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) has developed a specialized system which has the potential to increase the safety of complex at-sea operations and ensure safer and smoother helicopter landings on RCN ships.

The months of hard work that totally, 100% paid off. Well done guys!
Do you know Canada? Did you know its official motto is 'A Mari Usque Ad Mare'? It translates as, 'From Sea to Sea'. But what we think it really means is that Canada has treasures like no other, from coast to shimmering coast. Its waters are home to over 30 species of whale. Its historic rail routes are over 100 years old. From prairie to mountain top, tundra to ice field, it has more than 900,000 kms of road. And its just waiting for you to discover it. So if you haven't had a Canada holiday yet, get going. Because those views have to be seen to be believed. Use our #CanadaKnow-How to plan your greatest adventure yet.
An iceberg ran aground over Easter weekend just off the small Newfoundland town of Ferryland, population 465, drawing knots of tourists eager to catch a glimpse. Some are locals or travelers who happened to be nearby, but many are a special Canadian breed, the iceberg chaser — people who flock to the coasts of Labrador and Newfoundland at this time of year hoping to see the huge frozen chunks of broken glacier that drift by on a stretch of sea known as Iceberg Alley. The berg at Ferryland rises about 15 stories above the waterline — and that is only about 10 percent of its mass. Some of the submerged ice comes into view when the berg is seen from above. “Most folks can’t wrap their heads around how big it is,” Barry Rogers, the owner of Iceberg Quest Ocean Tours, a Newfoundland tour oper...
Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Ceremony of the Flags, Provincial Legislative grounds, Victoria, British Columbia, August 1985 or 1986 (not 100% sure). My dad recorded this. Its an amazing performance. This is back in the day when cadets were actually aloud to use REAL firearms. Unlike cadets of today who are only allowed to touch pellet guns!!!!! DUMB!! The rifles the Guard are using are the FN C1A1.
RCAF Sikorsky CH-124 Sea King helicopter! I spotted this amazing machine in Castlegar, British Columbia, CYCG and was able to film the engine start up and takeoff. I think it is one of my best catches yet and I hope you all enjoy! On another positive note, I am done all my finals and now actually have some spare time! Over the weekend I'll start getting caught up on everyone's awesome uploads that I've missed over the past couple weeks!
The U.S. Coast Guard, with the help of a Canadian navy vessel, says it has made a massive cocaine bust in international waters. The American agency says it has seized about 14.5 tonnes of cocaine. The drugs were seized along Central and South America by the U.S. Coast Guard and the HMCS Saskatoon, which joined the operation in February.

Can't we hear the hurting they are asking
Where is there good in this world
We've seen it in print but there's no one to show it
Will you understand you're not the only ones who suffer
And suffer we will
The cutting wind has its way of killing hope when its so cold
We wonder as we sit around could we be meant for something greater
There's no hope for change when we can't see the needs of others before our own
And now must our faces be set as stone
Always forcing us against each other
So let us be the first to stand and say but not as if we were faultless
That we cant move on unless we forgive
We can forgive
We have to let it go
It's the arrogance we have to let it go
This is our greatest need
