The Best Sunrises in Canada

Sunrises are particularly special. Unlike the sunset, which concludes the day, a sunrise ushers in potential and hope, illuminating the darkness with glowing energy from the giant celestial egg yolk that gives our planet life.   Sure, a sunset can be greeted with a cocktail, but a sunrise is embraced with awe.    Where are the best sunrises in Canada?   Wherever you’re lucky enough to see one.   I polled Facebook to get the conversation started.   Add your suggestions to the bottom of the page.
