Dave's Clean Getaway

Some may know him as the guy to help you save energy, others may say he's the most interesting man in the world.

Hit the road and enjoy the beauty of B.C. this summer

This summer, Dave’s hitting the road to explore some of the best that B.C. has to offer and some hidden gems along the way. One of the reasons B.C. is such a beautiful place to live, work and play is because we generate 98% clean power.

Follow along as Dave showcase four incredible towns in B.C. and sees some of the best our province has to offer.

Contest details and how to enter

Hudson's Hope

Surrounded by rivers and lakes, the small community of Hudson's Hope is known as the Playgound of the Peace for good reason.
Whether you're into ATVing or canoeing, there's no shortage of incredible outdoor activities and breathtaking B.C. scenery. And it's a great place for history buffs too; Hudson's Hope is the third oldest European community in British Columbia.



Campbell River

Also known as the salmon capital of the world, Campbell River is one small town with no shortage of art, culture and things to explore. Follow along with Dave as he meets a master carver, stumbles across an actual chainsaw carving contest and tries some favourite local food.


Castlegar – also known as the sculpture capital of Canada – is a small town nestled in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. From tasting legendary smoked meat and discovering what life was like for the Doukhobor people to taking in serene scenic views and crossing a sketchy suspension bridge, there was no shortage of things for Dave to see.


For the last leg of his clean getaway in Mission, Dave visits Hayward Lake for a bit of fishing, before checking out the iconic Rocko’s Diner—seen on the hit TV show, Riverdale—and ending the day off at the Mission Raceway Park. He also took some time to visit the Powerhouse at Stave Falls, and chased some waterfalls at Cascade Falls Regional Park.
