Canada: A Vast Landscape of Beauty and Diversity

Canada, the second-largest country in the world, invites adventurers to its expansive terrains and multicultural cities. Nestled in North America, its history is a rich tapestry woven by Indigenous peoples, French and British colonialism, and a mosaic of immigrant cultures. A confederation formed in 1867, today's Canada is celebrated for its political and social progressiveness, vast natural resources, and commitment to preserving the environment.

Its southern and western border with the United States, stretching 8,891 kilometres (5,525 mi), is the world's longest bi-national land border. Canada's capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are TorontoMontreal, and Vancouver.

<p>OTTAWA, CANADA-- On Tuesday, April 23, 2024, campaigners staged a die-in protesting the devastating impacts of plastic pollution on human health and biodiversity on Tuesday morning, as delegates gathered in Ottawa for the first day of talks to agree a Global Plastics Treaty. The protest, organized by corporate accountability group Ekō, saw campaigners and volunteers wearing black lie down on the floor at the entrance to the city’s Shaw Centre, where the summit is taking place, as part of a call to governments to agree an ambitious plan to slash plastic production. Some donned fish masks to show the impact of plastics pollution on marine biodiversity.  Behind them a giant banner with the lettering made from used plastic trash bags spelt out the message: ‘Plastic is poisoning us. Cut production now.’<br />

The church was built in 1875 by James Cushie Bent and was home to Calvary Baptist Church until 1967. The building is built in distinctive composite styles which blend Victorian vernacular traditions with strongly individual design elements. The church blends a simple Gothic Revival style, evident in the Gothic-arched windows and door, with an Italianate square tower with bulls-eye windows. Bent purchased the neighbouring lot in 1884 and built a house for himself in 1888 which he deeded to the church to become the Manse after his death. His sister, however, occupied it and apparently assumed that she had inherited it. In 1926, the church took the new owner of the 'Manse' to court in an attempt to claim the property but lost the claim. In 1930, some members left to form a new congregation, which eventually built Burlington Baptist Church on New Street in 1954. In 1968, the building was bought by the Roman Catholic Church to serve the francophone congregation.</p>
