A large collection in Canada

What is probably the largest collection of British buses in North America can be seen languishing in a field in British Columbia, Canada.

The buses are a collection belonging to a Paul Tremblay (in the name of the Charity Plus Society), and can be seen from Route 4 near the crossing with Route 19 near Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island. In theory, the collection of vehicles constitutes a museum, although many of the vehicles are visibly in poor condition and their long-term future is questionable.

Three of the buses present are readily identified as ex-London vehicles, whilst the remainder appear to all be of provincial origin. Amongst the collection, the following are known:
