Reader's Digest Discovers the Best of Canada 2008!

    MONTREAL, June 3 /CNW/ - Where is the country's best fringe festival?
Who's the feistiest rock star around? Reader's Digest has just unveiled its
3rd annual Canada's 30 Best - a list compiled with insight from the best
experts we could find...our readers! From salmon fishing in Newfoundland, to
that decadent, chocolate topped bar in Nanaimo, BC (of course they own the
rights to best Nanaimo Bar in Canada...if not the world!) - we've got you
    This year's list takes a look at the people, places and things that make
Canada so great, and the best country in the world to live in. If you've
always thought, "I wish I could see more of Canada" we've got a few unique
travel ideas for you: how about stepping back in time and gambling like they
did in Gold Rush times? Or visiting the only fortified colonial city left in
North America? From yoga retreats and hiking trails, to perogies and puffins,
check out the June issue of Reader's Digest for a comprehensive list of
Canada's Best!
    The title of Best Young Singer-Songwriter goes to Feist, who wowed us
this year, sweeping the Junos and becoming a household name with her catchy
I-pod theme "1-2-3-4." And speaking of "Juno," 21-year-old Ellen Page has won,
or been nominated for, over 30 acting honours, including an Oscar nod for her
role in Juno. With summer coming up, you might want to check out the Best BBQ
Chefs at the Canadian Open BBQ Championships in Barrie, Ontario. For the past
two years, Team Cedar Grilling have beaten backyard chefs form across North
America and beyond, with five of their entries earning perfect scores!
    We're already at work on our list of Canada's Best for 2009 and we're
once again asking our readers to help us find more of those great people,
extraordinary places and unique things that stand out. Do you know a little
shop that has line-ups for cupcakes? Have you experienced something so
beautiful, so Canadian - a sunset, a canoe ride - that took your breath away?
Is there a best-kept secret you don't mind sharing? Well, go to and
share it with us - it just may make it on the Canada's Best next year.
