Let’s start this off with a quick quiz. If you had to guess, where would you say Canada’s best street is?
Alright, that’s kind of a trick question because this blog post is all about Ladysmith! Nevertheless, it’s totally true. In 2017, Ladysmith’s historic First Avenue was christened Canada’s best by the Canadian Institute of Planners.
