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.
