The Canadians are coming--still. Orange County was a popular spot for Canadian real estate developers in the late 1970s, when the residential and commercial markets here were going wild. Several took big hits when the boom busted in the early '80s, but since the mid-'80s there has been a steady influx from the north country. Among Canadian interests doing big business in Orange County these days are Bramalea Corp. in Irvine, a residential and commercial developer, and Bentall Development Corp.

"It was almost a rite of passage having Boots throw you out," said Richard Koenig, president of the Hermosa Beach Historical Society.
