Agree or Disagree?

In a recent poll by the firm Leger, of 1538 Canadians across the country surveyed between June 8-11, 2015, over two-thirds of respondents said they would rather spend the long weekend at a cottage or cabin than go on a big city getaway.

What is it that ingrains the need for Canadians to escape the city and find refuge and rejuvenation in places like Algonquin Park or Muskoka?

It seems everywhere we look we see images of people sitting lakeside on a dock or in a canoe enjoying the great outdoors.  We are truly blessed in Canada to have so many natural places to get away to.  And many of them, like our home at the Edge of the park are easy to get to from major cities like Toronto.

So as the July long weekend creeps upon us, where will you spend your long weekend, in the bustling city or in nature?
