Western Canada is known for the production of maple syrup, for having more lakes than any other country and for being a popular filming location.
But what else does Western Canada have that is so special?
Western Canada owns some of the most beautiful sceneries on the planet, with gigantic mountains and roads, in Banff and Jasper for example. Anyone that get to visit the cliffs, swim in the lakes or just drive down the road is truly blessed to get to see the beautiful wilderness surrounding them.
But that's not all ! If you go there, you will probably witness wild animals, like deers, in their natural habitat. The bad aspect of this is that a lot of animals get killed, crossing the road. That's why bridges are being built to help those creatures live their life without humans stopping them.
What I learned from my trip in Western Canada, is that canadians really know how to party ! There's so many wild events all around Canada, like festivals, the Polar Bear Swim in Vancouver, wich consists of celebrating the New Year by swimming in the freezing water, Griz Day in Fernie,wich is all about participating in fun contests, Slush Cup in Sunshine Village, Calgary Stampede and so many more... These festivities have one thing in common : They are all linked to Canada's weather !
All of these activites show the amazing team spirit and friendship Canadians have with each other.
You can't go to Western Canada without visiting the oil sands, the whole country's first economic reserve. They're the third most oil-producing country after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia.
Alberta owns some of the biggest oil farms of the country so I recommend going there. The oilmen there have interesting stories to told about their job, like one involving a witching stick and a lot of hope. Unfortunately, oil production is really bad for the global environment and is a very controversial topic.
Western Canada is a magical land of enchanting nature, fun activities and interesting oil-based economy. So grab your suitcase, sunglasses and passport, and let's go to Western Canada ! :)
