I'll be honest here and admit that I don't know enough about Canada. I have had plenty of Canadian friends over the years,Guest Posting and they all raved about how great it was, but they would say that wouldn't they. I doubt that there are many people in the world who doesn't believe that they come from the greatest place on earth. I am sure that even the people of Tijuana Mexico believe their city to be a fantastic location; trust me, it isn't. In the interest of fairness though, I have decided to do a little investigation to see just what is so great about Canada. Unfortunately I don't have the money to travel there so I'll just be relying on the wonders of Google. Well the first thing you find out about Canada is that it is big; in fact it is the second biggest country in the world. This is impressive but it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a great place to go. After all, if a place is made up of boring landscape the fact that it was really big would just be adding to the problem. A little more investigation though tells us that Canada is not only really big, but it is also full of some spectacular scenery. If you travel up to Newfoundland you can even see some icebergs and fjords; I'm not exactly sure what a fjord is, but it certainly sounds impressive. They also seem to have some stunning national parks and if the photos of Alberta are anything to go then well worth a visit. Some more Google investigation suggests that Canada is a very tolerant country that values its people no matter where they come from originally. This seems likely because I've never met a Canadian who gave the impression that they were suspicious about immigrants taking over their country. Different immigrant groups seem to mix well in Canadian society so they must be doing something right. The friendliness of the population is an important element when it comes to judging the greatness of a country so in this respect Canada is doing well. It also seems to be a peaceful country and this will also add to its charms. The Canadians also seem to have a lot less crime than some other countries. This will come as a surprise to people like me who get most of their opinions about the country by watching Trailer Park Boys. I have been assured though, that this is not how all Canadians live. In fact it turns out that this TV show does little to explain life in Canada; next they'll be telling me that the TV show Friends wasn't a realistic look at life in America.So it does seem that Canada has some reasons to claim greatness. Stunning scenery, hospitable people, and low crime are certainly things to be proud about. Maybe in future I'll be less likely to dismiss my Canadian friends when they make claims about their land being one of the nicest places on the planet.
