It boggles the mind that Canada is the same size as the whole of Europe, but whereas Europe (3,930,000 sq mi) has 739 million people Canada (3,854,085 sq mi) has just 33 million.


Yeah, the cold keeps the assholes out - so we don't have as many people as a lot of other countries! :lol:

Having said that - it's awesome to drive for a couple hours and be in a world class park filled with stunning scenery and wildlife - unlike all the Europeans who have to spend 10 hours flying here to see the same thing!


We have our own stunning scenery and wildlife. And we have history, too.

What brought that home to me is reading that the Fraser River drainage alone is larger than all of Britain or England, forget which. Or that Vancouver Island is the size of Holland.


Yeah. The Fraser River drains an 85,000 sq mi area, an area the same size as Guyana. England is 50,346 sq mi.

Baffin Island is bigger than the island of Great Britain.

It's 1,424 miles from Vancouver to Winnipeg, but just 1,204 miles from Bolton, near Manchester, where I live, to Florence in Tuscany. So I have to travel a less distance to see this beautiful ancient city than Canadians do when they travel from Vancouver to visit family in Winnipeg.
