An Insider's Guide to Waterloo Region

Interesting places on and off the beaten track

William Lyon Mackenzie King at KCI

This statue of William Lyon Mackenzie King was unveiled during the 150th anniversary celebrations at Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate and Vocational School in 2005. King was a student here from 1887-1891 and went on to be the longest-serving Prime Minister in the Commonwealth as he led the Liberal party in power for 22 years. The school opened in 1855 and after a few moves opened at its current location in 1876.

We plan to stop blogging on An Insider’s Guide to Waterloo Region with this post. There are 492 photo posts of Waterloo Region which reflect its natural beauty and social diversity.

Gasoline prices are now 60% higher than when I started this blog and I no longer drive home from work taking detours to Cambridge, Waterloo or the townships. I plan to focus on more energy efficient endeavours including a new volunteering venture in downtown Kitchener. Perhaps I will write about that some day. Thanks to all who followed and commented on this blog. It will remain public for the time being.
