Best winter hikes on Vancouver Island?

I would like to take my girlfriend to Vancouver Island for the New Year. I'm looking for one or two great day hikes on the island that still be doable even if there is snowfall. I imagine a coastal hike is our best bet, and I'm looking for recommendations. Bonus points if you can see a mountain from the hike. Even a big hill.

Wanting to Visit Canada for 6 months

My boyfriend lives in Canada and I live in the U.S. We've been dating for 3 years now and have only spent about a maximum of 2 weeks at a time together. Ideally we'd like to work on finding a way to move me up there but before we do that we want to spend a good amount of time together in person before doing so. [more inside]

Suggest interesting things to do in Nova Scotia in September?

We'll be wandering around Nova Scotia for a couple weeks in September. We've got accommodations and some activities figured out. But can you recommend some things we might not have thought of for activities, as well as great places to eat (as in interesting and not touristy)? Our time will concentrate on spending several days in each of these areas: Digby to Wolfville; Halifax to Lunenburg; Cape Breton (Ceilidh trail, Cabot Trail, Louisbourg); Eastern Shore drive; day or two in Maitland area for tidal bore rafting and recovery. Thanks in advance!

Where can I see a bear in the wild on Vancouver Island?

I'm visiting Vancouver Island this week and next. I have a free weekend. I am from Australia and have never seen a bear. Apparently Vancouver Island is full of them, but presumably not in downtown Victoria. I've seen tours advertised to go look at grizzly bears, but they are at least 3 days long, over a thousand dollars in price, and I don't care whether I see a grizzly or a black bear: I just want me some bears of any of the varieties.
