The oldest person in Canada celebrated her 113th birthday just before Christmas in British Columbia. Merle Barwis is the country’s last living link to the Victorian era and is among the 13 oldest people on this planet. Barwis lives in a nursing home on Vancouver Island. She was born in the US on December 23rd, 1900 and raised in Saskatchewan. Barwis says she has frequent visits from family reliving memories over cups of coffee or the occasional bottle of beer. She hasn’t divulged what’s helped her live to 113 but once said it’s important to keep busy and mind your own business in life.
