Okanagan: Building a Brigadoon-ian place to live

For as long as I can remember, people across Canada have spoken with great reverence, serendipity and kindness about our part of the world.

Most Canadians remember Ben Johnson, who won, then lost a 100-metre 9.79 second Olympic race and cyclist Lance Armstrong, who won, then lost a 21-day, 3,600-kilometre Tour de France title—seven times! Even A-Rod,...
