the Empress Hotel under the auspices of the Vancouver Island
Horticultural Association, is held annually early in May, when

their glory. Programme for the 1941 Festival, April 30 to May
3, will include a flower festival at the Empress Hotel and the

Hotel is like an English Manor House, surrounded by charming
landscaped gardens.
The low altitude and bracing mountain air is especially beneficial
for heart and nervous cases, while the waters of the mineral springs
(sulphur 165° and potash 145°) have proven their value in the
treatment of rheumatic disorders and kindred ailments.

including Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Laboratory and Technical
Departments, Colonic irrigation room (Dierker apparatus), great
white-tiled indoor sulphur swimming pool, bath and massage

Victoria .... popular as a summer resort, is
attracting each year ever-increasing numbers during
the so-called winter season.
Victoria is not tropical or semi-tropical, but its
winter climate is acknowledged by the medical
profession to be one of the best for the white race.
A winter climate paralleling the climate optimum—
temperature variation at the ideal with hundreds of
hours of warm sun during the winter season—
minimum rainfall. A land alive with interest—
health-giving and restful—a beauty spot— truly a
refuge from winter.
To these natural advantages, Victoria adds the
palatial Empress Hotel — centre of Vancouver
Island's varied sporting activities—tennis, golf on
evergreen courses the year round, yacht in
December, motor along picturesque highways, swim
in the great salt-water pool at Crystal Garden, and
numerous other sports.

General Information
IT IS EXPECTED that service will be
established between May 15th and
20th, and for the first month it is
probable that only one round trip per day,
including Sunday, will be made, leaving
Bellingham at a convenient hour in the
morning, to enable motorists to reach
Victoria between 12 and 1 p.m., and leaving Sidney on return trip in the afternoon.
During the height of the tourist season
two round trips per day will be made,
leaving Bellingham on the first trip early
in the morning and on the second trip at
about 2 p.m.
Arrangements will be made for improvement in service between Nanaimo
and Vancouver to provide increased facilities for the motor travel which it is confidently expected will be developed for the
Circuit Tour, particularly as regards
accommodation for limousines and other
types of closed cars.
Complete time tables will be distributed in due time and will be procurable
at publicity bureaus and automobile clubs
and from agents of the Canadian Pacific
in the principal coast cities.
Motorists are advised to make advance
reservations for their cars and to claim
reservations as much in advance of scheduled departure time of steamer as possible.
Reservations will be subject to cancellation if not taken up at least 15
minutes prior to sailing.
The Company will not be responsible
for articles left in cars or for attachments.
Canadian and United States

Ferry Steamer
and Route
The steamer which has been designed
and constructed by the Canadian Pacific
Railway for this new ferry route has been
planned primarily for the handling of all
types of motor cars,
and will have capacity
for about fifty cars.
The steamer will bc completely fitted out,
however, for the proper handling of
passengers, and every comfort in the way
of ample deck space, observation room,
lunch counter, etc., will be provided to
enable passengers to thoroughly enjoy the
three-hour trip.
It is expected that tourists will find
the change from the Highway to thc ferry
one of the pleasant experiences of their
tour. It is a sheltered voyage for the
entire distance, and the sail from Bellingham across Bellingham Bay, Rosario
Strait, past San Juan, Orcas, Lopez and
other islands, and finally across Haro
Strait to Sidney, will be found very enjoyable.
At Sidney it is necessary to pass
Immigration and Customs inspection, and
motorists  will be  supplied with  Customs

form, which must be filled out to show
particulars of car, which are required by
Customs regulations.
A 20-mile ride over a good road brings
us to Victoria, the capital of the Province
of British Columbia, and here,
overlooking the Inner Harbor,
is the Empress Hotel, the westernmost of
the chain of hotels operated by the
Canadian Pacific Railway, offering the
tourist the highest standard of hotel
service.
Here the visitor will find every attraction throughout the year, boating, bathing, fishing, walks through woodlands
where hundreds of wild flowers grow,
splendid golf courses, tennis, yachting.
The Astrophysical Observatory, one
of the largest in the world, is open to
visitors every day. The Parliament
Buildings, with their fine libraries and
museum, arc a never failing source of
interest.
This city is the gateway to the highway which winds for a thousand miles
and more through this island of enchantment,   passing   over   the   lordly   Malahat
Mountain, from which may be obtained
splendid views of thc surrounding country and the mountains of the mainland.
Salmon and trout fishing invite thc
disciples of Izaak Walton. In season,
there is big game for the hunter, and
many game birds, pheasant, grouse,
quail, ducks and geese. All of this within
a short journey of the city.
From Victoria the motorist follows
the Island Highway and enjoys the
beauties of the famous Malahat Drive, a
replica of the famous Chuckanut Drive,
near Bellingham, and, passing through
the towns of Duncan and Ladysmith, we
arrive at Nanaimo, at the end of an
80-mile drive that has been filled with
interest and enjoyment.
Nanaimo, the second oldest city in
British Columbia, and the fourth in population, is the centre of the
coal mining industry on
Vancouver Island and the distributing
point for the northern and central
sections, owing to its proximity to
Vancouver, with which it is connected by
a fast ferry service.
Nanaimo
Nanaimo's early history is closely
associated with that of the Hudson's Bay
Company, and one of the most interesting
landmarks in the city, the Bastion, was
erected by that company in 1852. This
still stands, and is in a splendid state of
preservation. It is a point of interest to
the many tourists and visitors who visit
Nanaimo during their tour of the Island.
This is open to the public during certain
hours in the afternoon and evening.
Within easy access of Nanaimo lies a
scenic region that for beauty and expanse
would be hard to duplicate. On the
Nanaimo-Albcrni road are snow-clad
peaks, mountain streams and lakes teeming with fish; on the Nanaimo-Courtenay-
Campbell River road the tourist gets a
view of the Gulf of Georgia and the
snow-capped Coast Range of mountains
on the mainland of British Columbia.
At Nanaimo another steamer is taken
for a 40-mile run across the Gulf of
Georgia to Vancouver. This service will
also be capable of handling all types  of
cars,   and   provides   accommodation   that
will be found satisfactory in every respect.
Thc motorist should plan to spend
more than one day at Vancouver.    With
Vancouver a P°Pulatio" ™ the city
proper of about 175,000
and in Greater Vancouver of about
220,000, Vancouver has grown in a few
years to a position of commanding importance on the Pacific.
The city is magnificently located on
the shores of Burrard Inlet and English
Bay, facing the mountains of the North
Shore.
There are many points of interest,
including Stanley Park, a natural park
of 1,000 acres, world famous for its primitive beauty, wealth of foliage and giant
trees; Marine Drive, Capilano Canyon,
Lynn Canyon, and the English Bay
bathing beach.
The city is well equipped with hotels,
and the Hotel Vancouver (500 rooms), of
the Canadian Pacific Hotel System, is
second to none on the Pacific Coast.

 "This place (Victoria) is as British as Basingstoke, and as beautiful in scenery, luxuriant growth of
flowers and peaceful quiet, as any place on earth. . . The air that blows down from the cold northern
waters makes you feel thirty years younger and two feet taller.    You should see this country."
—Arthur Brisbane, the famous American columnist.
"To realize Victoria you must take all that the eye admires most in Bournemouth, Torquay, the Isle
of Wight, the Happy Valley at Hong Kong, the Doon, Sorrento, and Camps Bay; add reminiscences of
the   Thousand Islands,    and arrange the whole around the Bay   of   Naples,    with some   Himalayas   for the
background." — Rudyard Kipling.

The Causeway,   Victoria, the Magic Gateway to a   Thousand   Miles of   Wonderland
VICTORIA, the Capital City of British Columbia, besides being one of the most beautifully situated
cities in the world, and a very popular holiday resort, is the magic gateway to Vancouver Island.
Vancouver Island is a natural playground where one can motor over a thousand miles of good roads,
play golf, fish (trout, salmon, grilse and steelhead), hike, bathe, yacht, mountaineer, play tennis and ride
on good saddle horses along bridle trails through evergreen forests, the summer air fragrant with the
scent of pine cones. This is a holiday Island. Come over and enjoy yourself, and do not forget that
Victoria is also a winter playground—a playground where you can play golf on open green courses
when the rest of the continent is under snow.

 FOR HEALTH AND ENJOYMENT .  .  .
CANADA'S    EVERGREEN
PLAYGROUND
Natural beauty can often be poignant enough to make you
catch your breath. Canada's Evergreen Playground abounds in
such glorious glimpses of nature's handiwork.
A blue and green land accented by purple shadows—alive with
interest—health-giving and restful—this beauty spot is truly
a refuge from winter.
There are sports of all kinds to challenge your vigor and skill;
unique and exquisite places to visit; little explored by-paths in
adventure.
The delightful remark of a world traveller that Canada's Evergreen Playground combined all the colour of Ceylon with the
austere majesty of Switzerland, comes very close to the truth.

 Vl C T O R I A . . .
The CAPITAL of CANADA'S EVERGREEN PLAYGROUND
Victoria, legislative capital of British Columbia, eighty miles
from Vancouver across the blue waters of the Gulf of Georgia,
is a City of wondrous charm.
The Parliament Buildings, the Astrophysical Observatory with
its giant telescope—the meteorological station on Gonzales
Hill with instruments that note the tiniest variation in movements of the earth's crust—all have a fascination of their own.
Nor must the magnificent Parliament Buildings be forgotten,
with their Library and a Museum containing wonderful exhibits
of Indian art.
It is on the Marine and Malahat Drives winding alongside
many bays, swinging through parks and across headlands that
you most thoroughly savor Victoria's loveliness.
A breeze comes fresh from the Pacific. The snowy Olympics
and the Coast range across the waters make a glorious skyline.
The world is a lyric of gold and blue.
Page Four
 THE
Empress H
OTEL
Like a spacious English mansion, The Empress stands amid
formal gardens. Only by staying there, can you really appreciate
the subtle charm and atmosphere of the place. From its windows you see ships of the seven seas and the cathedral serenity
of British Columbia's Parliament Building: below lie the beautiful gardens of the Hotel.
 LUXURIOUS    COMFORT
Whether it be the conservatory with its moorish fountain, the
Vice-Regal suite, the ballroom or the lounge and writing rooms,
there is a restful luxuriousness about the Empress that expresses
to the full the word—comfort.
The dinner and supper dances have sophistication, yes—but a
rare charm too. Tea hour at the Empress has all the well bred
but informal gaiety of an English Country House Party and the
orchestra leaves nothing to be desired even by the most exacting.
A celebrated Chef—creator of delectable dishes—makes mealtime
a delight, and a dining room of noble and harmonious proportions adds in no small measure to your enjoyment. There are,
too, delightful private dining rooms where you may entertain.
The Empress affords ideal headquarters for your adventure in
Canada's Evergreen Playground.
Page Six
 YEAR       ROUND       GOLF
Golf in Canada's Evergreen Playground is an all year round affair.
On Christmas day links and courses are rilled with its votaries!
Few countrysides have as many, and none better, golf courses
than you find in Canada's Evergreen Playground. Victoria,
Vancouver Island, has a number of splendid courses. Vancouver
has ten and there are several others belonging to resort hotels
reached from these cities. (A list of courses will be found on
page 24).
EMPRESS MID-WINTER GOLF TOURNAMENT
Victoria, far famed for its all-year golf, is the venue for the Third
Annual Empress Mid-Winter Golf Tournament, sponsored by the
Canadian Pacific. Play will be over the Victoria Golf Course at
Oak Bay on February 23 to 28, 1931, when the E. W. Beatty
Challenge Trophy will be again competed for by amateurs playing
under club handicaps. The competition is open to all guests of the
Empress Hotel and members in good standing of clubs in Victoria
City; the entrance fee being $5.00 for ladies and $10.00 for men.
Dinner dances with cabaret entertainment will be held every
evening in the Empress Hotel with the presentation of prizes at
the Grand Ball on Saturday night.
 3 \  r
THE    CRYSTAL    GARDEN
Just across the velvety, sunlit lawns of the Empress Hotel you
come to the Crystal Garden, a huge glass structure which houses
one of the largest warm sea-water swimming pools in America,
150 feet long, specially constructed to insure continuous filtration,
also private seawater baths and Turkish baths, a dance floor and
badminton court.
Exotic vines have been trained all over the inside walls and
roof making the Crystal Garden an oasis of beautiful greenery
wherein tea may be had on the tiled promenade following a
refreshing plunge in the invigorating sea-water.
At either end of the promenade is a perfect dancing floor and a
first-class orchestra plays nightly. The Crystal Garden is the
city's most popular rendezvous and amusement centre.
Visitors to Canada's Evergreen Playground will find this delightful spot holds rare enchantment for them . . . few can
resist the lure of the sparkling sea-water amid its surroundings
of greenery and luxurious comfort.
Page Eight
 HUNTING      AND      FISHING
It is beyond doubt the most ticklish thing in the world to advise
hunters and fishermen, where, when and how to fish and hunt.
Guests of Canada's Evergreen Playground, however, will find
the heartiest co-operation at the hotel information desks. There
the results of careful investigation by experienced "scouts" are
compiled.
From the end of October until May you get Grilse in Brentwood
Bay with fly rods, spoons and wobblers. In November and
December there is a winter run of Springs which last practically
till May. You can also take big Ling, Cod, Perch and Saltwater Bass. From March to May you get Rainbow and Cutthroat. The fighting Blue-back Salmon runs from September
until November. Tyee, Trout, Dolly Varden, Kamloops,
Cohoes—yes—there's sport in plenty for the Waltonian Disciples
in Canada's Evergreen Playground.
Fall and Winter offer good hunting for the panther, locally
called Cougar. Hunters will find competent guides at their
service throughout the various seasons for deer and birds.
 THE ISLAND HIGHWAY - AN
UNROLLING RIBBON OF
S Y LVA N     BEAUTY
There are 175 miles of beautiful surfaced highway running from
Victoria up the Eastern Coast of Vancouver Island in the heart
of Canada's Evergreen Playground.
You leave the Empress Hotel and Victoria by way of Government Street—cross the rippling waters of Gold Stream, pass the
"Please avoid running over Game Birds" sign and so into the
aromatic shadows of giant forest trees.
You sight the blue green beauty of Saanich Inlet—mark Salt
Spring Island and coast down exhilarating curves. So through
sunlit farmlands and between a grove of mighty maples you
come to Cowichan Bay.
From Cowichan Bay away through Cobble Hill past little lanes
with alluring names to Duncan, a leisurely and courteous town
of quiet Britishers. So through arable land with the snow
capped peaks of the Island Mountain Range to your left and
glimpses of the sea and island alternating with forest to your
right. Past Chemainus, into and through Ladysmith onto
Nanaimo one of the most historic spots on the Island.    Now
Page Ten
 away along a road winding among meadowland and groves of
second growth fir to the wide sands of Parksville and again, six
miles from Parksville you come to Qualicum Beach where the
Sunset Inn offers accommodation throughout the winter to
fishermen and hunters. Saddle ponies, and boats for the bay
are available and there is hiking up the five thousand feet of
Mount Arrowsmith. From here are to be visited Cameron,
Alberni, Sproat and Central Lakes.
Now away on the forty mile run to Courtenay. Giant trees
throw velvet shadows across your path. Salt breezes mingle
with their pungency. You cross little rushing streams such as
Bear and Cougar Creek. You skirt the blue of Union Bay and
reach Courtenay and her elder sister, Comox.
Here you will hear talk of the Forbidden Plateau, a supposedly
giant-ridden country avoided for years by the native Indians.
Recently explored, it was found to be a pleasant area of probably
one hundred square miles. You can ride into the Forbidden
Plateau via Dove Creek. The famous Elk Hotel at Comox will
arrange route and horses and Mr. Woods of the Courtenay Board
of Trade will advise you as to equipment.
Just north of Courtenay is Merville from where you follow the
seashore quite closely. Looking toward Valdez Island you see
Cape Mudge Lighthouse and between it and the Highway—a
swift race of waters in Seymour Narrows. Motoring in Canada's
Evergreen Playground is a glorious adventure in itself.

Vancouver...
Named after a gallant captain of discovery days, the City of
Vancouver, Pacific Terminal of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
is built where the mighty Fraser river flows into the Gulf of
Georgia. Busy, industrial, with a magnificent land-locked
harbour, she has also unrivalled delights for those on holiday
bound.
In the harbour lie White Empresses of the Pacific, homeward
come with the riches of the Orient or outward bound with
machinery from Canadian and American factories. There lie,
too, Canadian Pacific pleasure steamers which will carry you
to other cities in the Evergreen Playground and thence on delightful cruises along the rugged, deep-indented west coast of
Vancouver Island.
Page Fourteen
 Vancouver, moated by many waters, built regally upon hills
sloping to jade and silver seas with the majesty of the Coast
Range as a background, has a thousand exquisite aspects.
From the Roof Garden of the Hotel Vancouver you best view
the wide-spread picture of its situation. You see in the distance,
southward, the Fraser,—to the West, the Gulf of Georgia.
You look down upon the green stretch of Stanley Park, the
long lovely curves of Marine Drive. Close beneath you are
etched the intricacies of its commercial skyline, and north—the
mountains.
And nearby, only three minutes from Hotel Vancouver lies Stanley
Park—a conservation of a thousand acres of natural and formal
gardens, packed with historic interest and time mellowed relics
—for Stanley Park was once a military reserve. Now amid
incense bearing trees the sunny glades of greenery lie sun-drenched
between the ramparts of ancient forests. Stanley Park has a
thousand moods—all lovely, all very beautiful and interesting.
Very blue and very green accentuated by purple shadows, alive
with peopled streets, Vancouver lies below you and you marvel
at its beauties. But it is in sudden, unexpected glimpses that
you sometimes surprise the very essence of this lovely, vigorous
City.
fc
The Canadian Pacific Hotel
Vancouver occupies a key
position in the City, on the
corners of Granville and
Georgia Streets.
An hotel with all the enterprising history of the
Canadian Pacific Railway
for a background, the
"Vancouver" combines solid
comfort and an excellent
cuisine with gaiety and a
jolly sense of welcome. In
its lobby and rotundas are
seen distinguished guests.
H.R.H. the Prince of Wales
and the late President Harding have stayed here. It is
an hotel with personality
and dignity.
Every evening there is a
dinner dance to the inspiring
music of a first-class
orchestra.

Antiques...
AND   THEIR   PURSUIT
Perhaps it is because many of the
settlers in Canada's Evergreen Playground were Old Country by birth
and parentage and brought their
household goods along with them
that Vancouver and Victoria and even
smaller towns like Duncan are such
happy hunting grounds for the antique
lover. For with the passing of years
family treasures must in some sort be
scattered to the four winds of heaven.
And of course dealers augment these
with objets d'art from Europe.
The Playground's juxtaposition to the
Orient also brings to its shops the
finest kinds of Oriental curios.
So it is that the antique shops of Canada's Evergreen Playground possess some very interesting possibilities for those
who search for the old and rare.
Only you, who have once experienced the thrill of unearthing
a tea pot of Sheffield plate, a piece of old Chelsea or Staffordshire
china, fiddle-handled silverware from Ireland, or a rare piece
of Chinese embroidery, can really appreciate what antique-
hunting in Canada's Evergreen Playground will bring you.
Nor will citizens of the Republic to the south forget that, thanks
to the British Empire preferential duties, imported English
goods can be purchased much more cheaply in Canada than in
the United States, and the shops in the Evergreen Playground
make a specialty of English goods.

 YACHTING    IN   CANADA'S
EVERGREEN    PLAYGROUND
Yachting is the business man's relaxation and recreation. Between the east coast of Vancouver Island and the mainland is a
shimmering sea called the Gulf of Georgia. These beguiling
waters stretch for over four hundred miles up the Coast of British
Columbia. Scenically and temperamentally the Gulf of Georgia
is lovely beyond compare. Qn its blue waters, you, who yacht,
can revel in the vagrant joys of a sea gypsy's life.
Even in winter months owners find yachting pleasurable in
Canada's Evergreen Playground. The log of the "Wyvern II,"
of Parksville, Vancouver Island, reads:—
"Dec. 25, 1929. Out with Alex and Brian under power one
and a half miles from shore.    Nice day."

 HARRISON     HOT     SPRINGS
Three hours by train or car from Vancouver is the now famous
health centre, Harrison Hot Springs. Here, amid wonderful
beauty of forest, lake and mountain peak, are hot health-
giving radio-active springs of sulphur and potash. From some
mysterious reservoir deep in the bosom of the earth, they bubble
forth, a blessing and boon to humanity.
A splendid Hotel has been built with a well-equipped medical
and hydro-therapy department. All the value of these natural
remedies coupled with the comfort and enjoyment of the gracious
hospitality at the hotel can be enjoyed by visitors.
It is easy to tell you that the holiday maker is as much at home
there as the patient and that there are sports and recreations to
fill every minute of a flavorful day—but it is far more difficult to
tell you of the gracious informal charm of the place.
The main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway carries you to this
Elysian abode.

October. Dahlias make a wonderful show during this month;
80 varieties can be seen. Early flowering Chrysanthemums
make a wealth of bloom and are used extensively as cut-
flowers in the Empress Hotel.
November is specially notable for the beautiful late flowering
Chrysanthemums and the starting of many delightful flowering shrubs, trees and plants.
December. The English Holly and different varieties of Coton-
easter, covered with vivid red berries are very plentiful this
month. The delightful Christmas effect of these berries is
much admired by visitors.

 January. Holly trees in many varieties and in full berry,
Cotoneasters making a delightful showing in the Empress
gardens, Pyracanthus (red berries) Viburnum tunus (lauris-

those who have made their homes in this district.

 EVERGREEN PLAYGROUND
CLIMATE   TEMPERED   BY  THE   JAPAN   CURRENT
OF paramount importance to the visitor is the climate of
Canada's Evergreen Playground. It is such that from the
Orient, from the South and from the Prairies, from the
East and from Europe come visitors and health-seekers to enjoy
it. The climate of this favored region, indeed, practically
duplicates the weather conditions the medical profession regards
as ideal and terms the "climatic optimum". At Victoria, for
example, the figures are as follows:
Moderate       temperature
variation	
Hours  of  brilliant  sunshine	
Rainfall	
OPTIMUM VICTORIA
40° F. winter to 39° F. January to
60° F. summer 60° F. July (for the past 42 years)
1,786    hours    a 2,176 hours a year (for the past 15
year years)
27 inches a year 27.27 inches a year (for the past 42
years)
If further proof were necessary of the atmosphere purity and
other advantages of the Evergreen Playground, the decision
some years ago to place the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory near Victoria would be sufficient.
That there is ample accommodation for visitors and health-
seekers in this paradise of health goes without saying. There
is also expert medical attention. There is no more luxurious
rest spot than the Empress Hotel, Victoria, while the city has
also two perfectly equipped, modern hospitals and 65 resident
doctors, many of them well-known specialists in their respective
fields.
And there is always something interesting to do and see. To
tell of these delights is comparatively easy. To realise them,
to enjoy them, you must come yourself to this lovely land where
green forests slope to jade green seas.
