Is Canada the greatest country to live in?

Nowadays, young kids may talk about America, considering its a large country and the neighboring country of Canada. Also, to some, it may be the land of opportunity.  

Well, here, we don't talk about " 'Merica". Here, we talk about Canada and only Canada, mentioning ALL the great features of Canada, that America may or may not have, but Canada producing it in a greater aspect. This is Canada, O Canada. -Insert Happy Face-

The Provinces of O Canada.

These here, aren't just the provinces of Canada. These are "The Provinces of Canada." There's a difference. Anyways, Canada has composed of 10 provinces as well as 3 territories. The province, I currently live in (and so far think, its the best) is Ontario. Through, experience, I find Ontario the best province to live in, for anyone coming from America.  Why? I'll tell you, down below.

Ontario: The Home of Toronto

This sight, is composed of lights and awe that would most likely make anyone want to live here. In fact, anyone who would see this picture could imagine, luxurious 5-star hotels. Even, though all those things are true, there are more than meets the eye.

The Niagara Falls

The Niagara falls. One of the most visited tourist attraction in all of Canada. It holds one of the most beautiful water falls which it gets its name from. It may be a 90-minute drive from Toronto, but Niagara Falls is well worth the trip. Watching close to 750,000 gallons of water a second hurtle down the curved cliffs is sure to impress. Take in the view from the top – the Table Rock site allows you to stand barely a metre from the edge of Horseshoe Falls – or head into the falls themselves with the Journey Behind the Falls, descending 38 metres through solid rock in a lift to stand next to the curtain of water. If that still doesn’t grab your attention, take flight with Niagara Helicopters and soar over the falls. As an added plus, you’re standing on the Canadian- United States border, the longest international border in the world. The falls straddle both countries, but we have it on good authority the views from the Canadian side are prettier. Especially at night.

There literally isn't any word that could best be used to describe this sight. Not even, I could. But magnificent is one of the words to describe what it is at night. The falls change into a multi-colored waterfall, which at times may even look like colored foam! Fireworks shoot for the stars and light up the night every Sunday night.

So close, yet so far.

Heading away from the falls and into Canada itself. There are way too many attractions that I could name and far too many then I'd like to remember. However, Canada's own history is set at another level of interest then it is with amusement. Heading far from present day Canada into a time, where Canada wasn't...Canada. Canada was actually a large "land" where the natives used to live. Skipping ahead to the interesting parts, we all know that Jacque Cartier explored that land and communicated with the natives. How Canada got its name is actually a funny story. A couple of natives were trying to identify a village with Jacque, when one of the natives there used a word "Kanata". A few days later, Jacque used a similar word "Canada" to describe all of this land which then became its actual name.

"In and Out" policy

Going back to present day, Canada. Canada has its own Immigration Policy which is fair towards most immigrants  that are eligible wanting to move into Canada.

Every year, its immigration has ranged between 221,352 and 262,236 immigrants per annum. In Canada there are four categories of immigrants: family class (closely related persons of Canadian residents living in Canada), economic immigrants (skilled workers and business people), other (people accepted as immigrants for humanitarian or compassionate reasons) and refugees (people who are escaping persecution, torture or cruel and unusual punishment). Which shows how Canada accepts everyone depending on their history. If the history is normal and sounds safe, they depart to Canada without any problems. However, if the history of a person sounds suspious or has some type criminal history, they will not get the permission to enter Canada.

This is to keep Canada safe from any type of problem from anyone in Canada.

Canada: The 2nd largest country

Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia. However, its population is only about one-fifth of Russia's. Nearly 90% of Canadians live within 200km of the border with the United States, which means that Canada contains vast expanses of wilderness to the north.

Believe it or not, apparently Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world after Russia. In fact, I suggest you search up a picture of Russia and compare it with Canada.

At first glimpse, it will look like Canada is nowhere close to being the 2nd largest country. However, upon closer inspection, you can tell that, by a small chance, it is the 2nd largest country, as per population. But, Canada's population is nowhere near Russia's, because unlike Canada, almost all of Russia is either covered by cities, or some type of military control. (As much as that sounds like, media bias news coverage, it's somewhat true. But that's to insure the safety of a large land like Russia.)

Unlike Russia, not all of Canada's land is entirely covered by population. Yes, some of what is covered by industrial factories, that could be supplying FISH, and other resources.

Overall, these are some facts (2011) that can be used to understand Canada's cities, population etc.

  • Full name: Canada
  • Population: 34.3 million (UN, 2011)
  • Capital: Ottawa
  • Largest city: Toronto
  • Area: 9.9 million sq km (3.8 million sq miles)
  • Major languages: English, French (both official)
  • Major religion: Christianity
  • Life expectancy: 79 years (men), 83 years (women) (UN)

The-End-But-Its-Really-Not-Plot-Twist Cliché

Overall, I'd like to say...

Move into Canada, because seriously, tell me. Everything, I just mentioned above, doesn't it want to make you move into Canada at the least? Not even a tiny bit? (Unless you already live in Canada...OR ARE YOU!?)

In a more serious, matter, Canada has its ups and downs, but most of it are ups because its in the North (See what I did there?). Canada has its attractions and is quite the peaceful place to live. It's a great country to live for some of its historic monuments as well as some modern tech.

Welcome to Canada, the 2nd finest country after Mother Russia!
