Canada Day Picnic in the Park

Clear your calendars for the 3rd annual BHCA Canada Day Picnic in the Park. Games, freezies and lots of hot summer. OK, this snow needs to go.


Canada Day Fireworks Show

Even better than the Picnic in the Park, Our 3rd annual Canada Day Fireworks Show at Loyola Park, on Loyola. This is a fireworks show comparable to the Parliament Hill show, but closer to home, and without the crazies from downtown. If being around the crazies downtown is your thing, I apologize. This is a very expensive show to put on, but we do it for the love of our community and our country. If you can spare a few dollars to help us out, it would be greatly appreciated. You can dontae online at or sign up as a member.


The Amazing Race Canada

Some Beacon Hill Boys, Dwayne and Paul are trying to get onto the show The Amazing Race. Anything you can do to help them would be great. What can you do? Watch this Youtube Video:

Good Luck, Paul and Dwayne. The BHCA is rooting for you!

Fun Stuff

If Ever Your Car Gets Stolen (not Fun, I get it, but a neat solution)


Oh, and here’s a tip I hope you never need: if your car is ever stolen, your first calls should be to every cab company in the city. You offer a $50 reward to the driver who finds it AND a $50 reward to the dispatcher on duty when the car is found. The latter is to encourage dispatchers on shift to continually remind drivers of your stolen car. Of course you should call the police too but first things first. There are a lot more cabs than cops so cabbies will find it first -and they’re more frequently going in places cops typically don’t go, like apartment and motel complex parking lots, back alleys etc. Lastly, once the car is found, a swarm of cabs will descend and surround it because cabbies, like anyone else, love excitement and want to catch bad guys. Cabbies know a lot of stuff.
