Nelson is a great city to visit

As a frequent visitor to Nelson, I will say that your city has a lot of unique artistic diversity and cultural folklore to boot.

As a frequent visitor to Nelson, I will say that your city has a lot of unique artistic diversity and cultural folklore to boot. It’s a very unique city — be proud of it, Nelsonites!

On the other side of the spectrum, I come from northeastern BC where the winters are frigid, snowy and long. We have predominantly a red hot oilpatch and services-oriented economy. Sadly enough, it comes with a highly transient population that does not have strong family rooted traditions, unlike probably here.

Your city has a very pleasant pace which will pull me to return again.

Finally, I want to thank profusely the staffers and volunteers of the soup kitchen located inside the Kootenay Christian Fellowship Church on Stanley Street. This is the best soup kitchen I ever attended, period. Especially thanks to “D,” Nancy and Lily for their dedication. I found the same dedication at The Dancing Bear Inn. It’s a great hostel. I love “Planet Nelson.”

See you later.
