If you are a Canadian reading this you will feel a sense of pride not just because we are home to the sport of hockey, delicious Tim Hortons coffee and warm and fuzzy toques (fyi, which are winter wool hats), but you will feel honoured as the Canadian leaf country was recently ranked the top country in the world to live in, visit, study and attend organized events. Country Rep Trak report released the information about Canada being rated the number one country that received the best overall reputation in the world after three consecutive years of holding the title. Hornblower Niagara Cruises is thrilled to be located in Canada as it is a first for the Hornblower San Francisco based Company to operate an iconic attraction for global visitors.
