I was watching the CBC last night and they said that there are some holes in the couples' schedule so we might get to see something unexpected. Although their schedule looks packed to me!

They will be free to do whatever they want on July 6, which will be a relief given all the events and air travel of the previous couple of days. I hope they'll spend it enjoying Canada's beautiful natural scenery.

According to this source the most people from Quebec are obviously indifferent to the upcoming visit

http://translate.google.ru/translate...l_POS1&act=url

A Quebec Journalist Yves Boisvert has written an article in which he tries to raise antimonarchist spirits

No he is NOT. He's just explaining why here in Quebec there is a duality: for most of us the monarchy is irrelevant but we kinda like Will & Kate because they are cool.

Irrelevant because Canada has its own constitution and we no longer need to get approval from London if we want to change it BUT at the same time our head-of-state is the same as a foreign country.

To change that we would have to change our constitution but ABSOLUTELY nobody wants to open that can of worms here (Boisvert explains that even Australia is reluctant to do it).

Radio-Canada TV (French side of CBC) just reported on W & C. They called her Princess Kate (grrrr!). My national TV making such horrible mistakes.

They talked about the preparations at Rideau Hall for tomorrow. 90% of the food is there and coming from the different provinces of Canada (maple sugar from Ontario, strawberries and rhubard from Quebec, etc... but the shrimps from BC are still in the water there - they should be catched today, shipped by plane tonight and in Ottawa by tomorrow morning).

They say it's probably the most followed royals in the world as over 300 foreign reporters are in Ottawa for that visit. Last year about 20 were there for her Majesty.

300 foreign reporters...WOW!

And to think while I am sure this visit is costing the Canadian taxpayer a pretty penny (i.e. in regards to security costs). Those reporters have to eat and sleep somewhere while in Canada. And hopefully, they will introduce their readers to the beauty of Canada and they might be inclined to visit in the future.

Tnks for explaining. Any other 'inside' information while they are there will be more than welcome

Amazing, right?! Canada will have to pay for the visit, but for those 9 days they will get the best advertising opportunity.

I hope they get to see some of those incredibly cute black squirrels. When I vacation in Canada, seeing those little creatures is always a highlight of my trip!

I see those in my backyard almost every morning often running on top of the fence.
They've destroyed several plants in my mom's vegetable garden.
