The administrator of this forum knows his biz about Graphics Design. Charles Hays Secondary school is probably the recommended high school for your kid, too. What that had to do with my first order of business was that the administrator of this forum works there.
The person who commented on the rain, well, there’s one thing about the rain in P-dot (some people call it that, do any of you?). After a month of constant rain (at least 4 or 5 days of rain a week, but usually a week of constant rain should be expected) you will get used to it.
This isn’t the kind of rain you get in Calgary, and believe me, when I visited there I liked it, it was refreshing like a shower. It is usually about 5 degrees centigrade during the rainy times (the Summer season rain temperature), but in the winter, freezing rain can occur at about -1 to 3 degrees centigrade.
To the Northeast a bit, is a world attraction; the Great Bear Sanctuary. In that area, is the most dense concentration of Grizzlies in such a small area in the world.
Wildlife sightseeing is an attraction in Rupert as well. Once in a while, a fish migration occurs in the river (The Skeena River), and Eagles will fly around in packs it seems.
If you happen to want to visit the next city, which is Terrace, B.C, you can drive up the Yellowhead Highway. Now this, Calgarian visitor/mover, is a sight to behold. Many of us Rupertites are pretty used to the sights offered in that highway, but you will love it. On both sides of the highway is a unique visage. To the right of the highway (driving to Terrace from Rupert) is the Skeena river. Your left, of course, has tall and robust mountains. Some of those mountains actually happen to be Dormant (or otherwise) volcanoes. On the sunny days (When this highway is most attractive), you can expect to see the Wildlife that lives in the area.
Wow, I made a long, but hopefully informative post.
