Downtown Victoria is your Place to be Spontaneous [Video]

An Ontario transplant explores his new hometown: Al’s story

From Ottawa’s frigid winters to Victoria’s temperate climate, it’s no wonder Al and his wife Virginia are thrilled to be on Canada’s west coast. He fully embraces downtown living, nestled in their home near Wharf Street.

Though he suffers from multiple sclerosis, Al never lets his growing mobility challenges slow him down. He’s always out exploring, going for lunches with friends and generally enjoying the myriad of activities the city has to offer. He tells us why downtown Victoria is his place to be spontaneous.
