    “The Town of Jasper

    Nestled in the heart of Canada’s largest Rocky Mountain Park, the town of Jasper offers visitors unparalleled access to one of the most breathtaking and pristine wilderness areas in Canada. 5000 people live in Jasper year round, a few more in the summer than in the winter.Jasper is that breath of fresh cool mountain air, crisp and invigorating, yet reassuringly calm. A self-described little town in a big park, this historic railway settlement strikes a fine balance between conservation and development, ecology and economics. In its untamed heart, it’s a gateway to adventure within the largest and most northerly Canadian Rocky Mountain National Park. You’re as likely to sharea silent morning moment with elk here as you are with fellow human beings.
    And even though it offers every conceivable world-class resort luxury, amenity and activity – plus gourmet dining with nearly as many stars as the clear midnight skies – Jasper will tug at your heart long after you leave for one very simple reason – it feels like home.“

    I never enjoyed being a part of these parades, but I had to be a part of these parades as we had to send a political message. I hate this world sometimes, and I don’t want to live in it at times.
