Why locals love it

The Legion is a very simple venue, but the purpose of the Legion in Canada is anything but simple; in addition to supporting good times, the Legion supports Veterans in Canada (check out their webpage). It's spacious, and there is always seating. There are lots of games, and sometimes live music. The crowd reflects the diversity of the drive.

Why you should visit it

It's a bit of a dive bar, but that does not matter: there is so much fun to be had here, and so many people to meet. The profits go to a good cause. You never have to wait for a table, and you can learn a bit about Canadian military history while you are here. The drinks are also really cheap.

Special tip

Remove your hat upon entry (I'm not sure about their policy on religious headwear, but I'd call ahead to ask. I'd be surprised if there was an issue).

As far as I can see, they do not advertise their events, or have a facebook/web page. They do have events sometimes during the day (notably, craft fairs), but if you want more information on opening times, please call them. The website (www.legion.ca) can also give you more information on what the Legion does in Canada.
