It was announced this morning out of Ottawa that Prince William and Kate Middleton won't be visiting Beautiful British Columbia during their trip to Canada in June. The official itinerary includes stops in Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Ottawa,... but no B.C.. Princess Di and Prince Charles visited Prince George in 1986 during Expo. (I should probably inject that their motorcade was traveling so fast that the only glimpse we got was of a black flash of metal speeding past)
So -- Who decides which provinces they visit? Is it the government? The Queen? The happy couple? MI-6? CSIS? Anybody know? (My goodness, she's thin)
Do the Royal Couple realize just how large mosquitoes in the Northwest Terrorities are??? Are Canadian mosquitoes even allowed to bite Royalty?
Is it possible that they believe our summer weather looks something like...
This is more like it:
Turns out I'm not the only one wondering. Global BCTV has a facebook page asking viewers to urge the couple to reconsider. But that still doesn't answer my question. The writer in me needs to know: Who made this decision? After all, we're British Columbians, named after their sovereign country. What could they possibly be thinking!
