Leading up to Canada Day, the APEX team is having a great Canadian scavenger hunt, exploring media markets across the country.

With a few days before our nation’s big birthday, we head to our neighbour in the west, known as the “Gateway of the West” for its railway and transportation, and also being a large producer of gold medal-winning Golden Caviar.
