It was not only a very compelling story for people related to the imported house trade, but also for entrepreneurs and people who live in the Tokai area which is long overdue for its "big one".

This year, 2017, marks a big year for Canada as it turns 150 years young!
It seems like only yesterday that Canada was celebrating its centennial year, and here we are celebrating its Sesquicentennial . Yes! There is a word for it. I mean, you would have thought something like, " tri-semi-centennial ", but the actual term sounds almost like Sasquatch, making it just that much more Canadian.
