Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.

Despite the weather in Vancouver the last couple of days, summer is just around the corner. A good way to get thinking about what to do this summer can be found in Frommer’s Vancouver and Victoria 2011. Written by Donald Olson, it’s a terrific guide on what to do, what to see and where to eat here and in the provincial capital. It’s got the Frommer’s imprimatur, one of the leaders in travel content, whether it’s books like these which sell millions of copies worldwide, or their website at www.Frommers.com, or other media. Frommer’s editor Gene Shannon joins me now to talk about the book, about this area, and perhaps offer some advice to the vacation planner, or tips to the discerning traveller. Frommer’s is a branded imprint of Wiley. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Gene Shannon; Good morning, Mr. Shannon.
