Transcript of CANADA

Immigration and Emigration
O CANADA!
Difference Between
easy to get around (roads/paths everywhere)
ground quickly (overnight,...)
company advertisement on truck
uses lots of energy (not an eco-friendly way of transportation)
very heavy (tough on roads)- major highway problem
only $99.99
Movement & Place / Location

where is CANADA?
Basic Requirements For Moving Goods
CANADA
t tally not where we live right?
Welcome to our Canada newspaper- the Project Canada. This issue will feature place, location and movement within Canada. Enjoy!
WAYS OF TRANSPORTING GOODS- trucks
Advantages
Disadvantages
Safety/security , insurance, time, and size & shape.
good for natural materials (lumber, wheat, coal, etc.)
no congestion
bulky goods
energy-efficient
quick (long-distance)
WAYS OF TRANSPORTING GOODS- trains
Advantages
Disadvantages

limited to railway tracks
expensive to maintain (building & taking care of tracks...)
difficult to control (dangerous)
inflexibility (schedule)
Safety/security

usually safe (containers are locked and sealed when transporting)
newer technology that can help prevent item theft (eg sensors that detect when containers are opened, etc)
Advantages
WAYS OF TRANSPORTING GOODS- ships
Disadvantages
overseas / long-distance
cheap to ship in large volumes
less fuel than most modes
limited to water-reachable areas and ports (lakes, rivers, canals, oceans, seas)
very slow
difficult to monitor
port duty / taxes
inflexible
WAYS OF TRANSPORTING GOODS- planes
Advantages
Disadvantages
very quick
long-distances
can reach remote areas
expensive
smaller volumes only
smaller cargo only
lots of fuel- pollution
Place and Location: the Difference
Important Factors in Moving Goods, Services, and People
TOTALLY NOT OPTIMUS PRIME IN DISGUISE
just a freight truck

Population: 35 345 000 (January 2014)
Goods Transported in Canada
Stats
Coordinates: 62.2° N, 105.4° W
Development Status: Developed
Insurance
- Usually safer because:
Goods inside the container do not need to be handled
Each container is given a number
Containers & their movement are tracked by computers
Time
- It generally is faster because:
no need to handle the cargo
less crowding at ports (for ships to be loaded/unloaded) -> shipping time is usually quicker
Economies / Trade of Each Region
most of Canada is Hunting, Fishing & Forestry
Southern Canada = mostly Forestry
Manufacturing = GTA (southern tip Ontario), Montreal Area
Northern Canada = Little or No Economic Activity
the rest = Agriculture
Little or No Economic Activity

Hunting, Fishing, Forestry

Forestry (lumber, pulpwood)

The Canadian Shield:
Many bodies of water (lakes, rivers, rapids, etc.)
Valleys, hills, highlands, plateaus, plains & lowlands
Surrounds the Hudson Bay
Many trees (eg evergreen trees)
Shallow soil
Different climates because of the size of the region
The Plains:
Flat (about 50%)
Has hills, escarpments, wide river valleys, forests, sand dunes (raised hills of sand) & short/small mountains
Prairies, grasslands, hoodoos, & steppes
Mild summers, harsh & cold winters.
The Cordillera:
Many tall mountains
Forests
Plateaus & deep valleys
Islands
Coastal climate = mild, warm, & wet.
Interior climate = snowy, cold, & dry.
The Appalachian Region:
Lots of water
There are mountains and plains, highlands and lowlands.
usually (because of the ocean), climate is mild, but it may differ a lot, there may be fog, snow, rain, storms, etc.

LAME COMICS
1) speech transport (eg: a teacher giving some "important" history lecture to asleep students, etc)


3) media -> images, videos... (eg: Charmin Ultra-Soft toilet paper -> "We all go...so why not enjoy the go? with Charmin UltraSoft!", etc)
2) text transport (eg: a math textbook published in 1999 that teaches students how to confusingly add fractions using manipulatives, etc)
CONTAINER FREIGHT SYSTEM
Size and shape
- (Intermodal) containers are made using weathering steel and:
come in a standard shape and size, so they can be easily transported from one way of transportation to another (e.g. a ship to a truck)
are stackable

wtf does the cordillera look like?
Canada to USA:
south: mostly truck or train; few air
north: mostly planes; trucks in winter; few trains
62% (2005) goods transported by truck

CAN has FTAs with USA & Mexico (NAFTA), Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, Jordan, Panama, European Free Trade Association
place & location = different things (but interchangeable)
place: area / region determined by attributes / features / characteristics (physical) -> "what"
location: an area determined by position -> "where"

Absolute Location

Relative Location:
The bank is in between the school and yellow building.
Important factors in moving goods are
~Safety eating pants
~Time Management
~Reliable Mode Transportation
(Freight Trucks, Trains, Cargo Planes, and Freight Ships)
~Budget
~Protection of Goods
Immigration
Emigration
and no we did not forget about Central America
SANK YOU FOR WATCHIN
EHHHHHHH!!
Movement of people from one bordered-area to another (going somewhere else)
usually permanent residence (not temporary) -> could lead to citizenship
pull factors: jobs, better economy
push factors: war, broken economy
act of leaving one's native country to settle in another (leaving to go)
opposite of immigration (leaving, not arriving)
push & pull factors
usually caused by push factors (war,
