The world’s second-largest country will usher in its sesquicentennial in 2017 in rollicking good health.

I do like wide open space. In summer time, we always spend time at our cottage completely in the wilderness. I love nature. The air is so fresh and pure. We are so grateful to be surrounded by an abundance of nature and of fresh water lakes.

Author CamAngkor ( ago)
I'm from Montreal . I'd like to visit the whole country but it is impossible to see everything, in my lifetime, too big and traveling within Canada can be very expensive.

Canada is so beautifull, yet plain tickets are so damn expensive. Here in germany they start at aroud 600 Bucks, only for one flight. If I want to go back, which I hardly wont but have to, I must pay another 600 bucks to get home :D Thats 1200 Bucks only for the flight. Thats like a Thailand trip for 30 days.

Canada > America

Author F A ( ago)
Canadians are generally nice and welcoming, Nova Scotia has the nicest Canadians in my experience. The spring summer and fall is amazing in eastern provinces. Vancouver has the best nightlife I don't know about French parts I only stayed few days there.

Author Noah Obach ( ago)

Author Dawn Roper ( ago)
East Coast didn't get a mention, yet the diverse scenery is breathtaking and the people are amazing. There is nothing more down-home than the people from down home. A big part of what makes Canada No. 1.

Author stephen ( ago)
Well well.... I'm surprised she did not say that she is Sorry!!. Or maybe she should!! So Canada is more or less, BC , Banff or Quebec . I'm Sorry, it includes everything from the East coast to the West coast. Let's use the word "inclusion" today. The rugged terrain and beautiful landscapes of the Atlantic provinces. The welcoming people! Central Canada, The True northern beauty, the Prairies....endless sight lines and all of its beautiful people. Maybe re edit your video for it lacks perspective. I won't say I'm sorry , I will leave that to Justin Beiber 🙄🤓❤️

Author Haiko8 ( ago)
Yay, I'm from Canada, Quebec! :D

Atlantic provinces have the nicest people 👌

Author AtomicLegion ( ago)
I've been coast to coast across Canada. It's beautiful to visit. Not so great to actually live here. When you have to deal with hyper inflation, foreign investment, an incompetent corrupt government.

Author Tuffy ( ago)
This video only explains a small fraction of Canada. Our government is corrupt, many of our citizens are poor and jobless, a lot of people here are addicted to drugs, theres lots of racism and most people here aren't stereotypically nice.

Author Canadian Rider ( ago)
I am proud to be Canadian!

Author Cam B ( ago)
I'll take it :)
