Sunshine's Origin

In the famously gray Northwest, "Sunshine Coast" seems a classic case of wishful branding by some ad agency. But the name was coined nearly a century ago by early settlers, who observed that this stretch of coast sees more sun than other areas of British Columbia. Of course, rain sustains the evergreen beauty of the temperate rain forest that borders the mountains.
