TORONTO, June 22 /PRNewswire/ – Have laptop, will travel. That’s the mantra for two bloggers and their interactive pilot project with the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC), “Canada is a Big Place” blog, which launched on the summer solstice June 21. As they travel around Canada, the pair will be blogging and uploading photos and video daily to inspire fellow travellers to follow in their footsteps. All material will be available to media rights-free.

Victoria Revay, a freelancer from Vancouver, BC, and Carolyne Weldon, a Montreal, QC-based Francophone freelance photographer and writer, are the lucky pair who set off from Montreal yesterday on a seven-week odyssey across Canada.

This truly interactive Web 2.0 pilot project is a first for the CTC and is integrated with CTC’s recent LOCALS KNOW campaign which aims to introduce new hot spots to Canadians and people visiting the country. CTC will host the bloggers’ adventures on its CTC Media Centre website. (Watch Revay and Weldon tell you about it themselves.)

Join the conversation at www.canadaisabigplace.ca and on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.
