Transcript of Canada
http://facts.randomhistory.com/2009/01/15_canada.html Canada is divided into 10 provinces and 2 territories.
On Canada's West region, it touches the Pacific Ocean, while on the East region it reaches the Atlantic.
Canada only has 28 million people, which is quite small for a country of its size.
Most territory in Canada is covered by wilderness, such as the Rocky Mountains on its West region.
Western Canada has many volcanoes. It is part of a volcano system found around the Pacific Ring of Fire. There are over 200 young volcanoes, which stretch as far north as the Yukon Territory.
There are some natural dangers in Northern Canada, such as permafrost and cyclones. These alone produce most of the country's precipitation.
There are also some man made problems throughout Canada, such as acid rain and air pollution. These can dramatically decrease the purity of the lakes, rivers, and air in Canada. This makes it a hard place to live if you aren't used to the conditions. Territories and Provinces of Canada Ontario (ON)

Canada are the Vikings. They had attempted
to take over the Natives of Canada (Aboriginals).
However, the Aboriginals had raided the camps
of the Vikings, so the Vikings soon had to abandon
their camps. 360 years later, Norwegian Paul
Knutsson was sent by the Church of
Rome to reclaim Greenland. Knutsson
sailed west to the Hudson Strait and
Hudson Bay, then turned south to the
James Bay. It is believed that Knutsson
traveled to inland along the Albany River. In 1497, John Cabot (His official name is
Giovanni Caboto Montecataluna) and his
two sons, Sebastion and Sancio, sailed from
Bristol, England aboard the ship, Matthew.
Instead of popular travel distances of North or
South at the time, Cabot sailed straight
west to land in Canada. But, soon after he landed and claimed Cape Breton Island, he died in a storm
while trying to return to England. Four ship were lost
at sea. Under British rule, the locals of Canada,
who spoke French, had a goal to keep their
traditions, language, and their culture. This was
when the British released the Quebec act. The
Quebec act granteed recognition to French Law,
which guaranteed religous and grammatical
freedoms. Facts on Canada Canada only officially became a country in 1982.
Before the flag with the maple leaf, Canada had used the British flag, the Union Jack.
