 Lovely canadian map!

Canada is by size, the largest country in North America, second in the world overall (behind only Russia). Renowned worldwide for its vast, untouched landscape, its unique blend of cultures and multifaceted history, Canada is one of the world's wealthiest countries and a major tourist destination.

It's a land of vast distances and rich natural beauty. Economically and technologically, and in many other ways she resembles her more powerful neighbour to the south, the United States, although there are significant differences between the two countries. 
Canada has always been heavily influenced by immigrants from two European nations, the British and the French. 
Domestically, the country has displayed success in negotiating compromises amongst its own culturally and linguistically varied populations, a difficult task considering that language, culture, and even history can vary significantly throughout the whole country. Canada considers and defines itself a mosaic of cultures and peoples. Canadians are used to living and interacting with people of different ethnic backgrounds on a daily basis and will usually be quite friendly and understanding if approached in public. 

I visited Canada in 2008 and I really want to go back! 

Thanks Marie!
