McDougall Memorial United Church
Canada

This church was built in 1875 on a site established by John McDougall and his wife.  The mission was prompted by George McDougall, his father as an outreach to the Stoney and Blackfoot First Nations people.  

At one time the population of the townsite of Morleyville exceeded that of Fort Calgary, downstream on the Bow River about 45 kilometers.  The CPR railway located in Calgary, however, and Morleyville (abbreviated to Morley) became a small local settlement.  

The site and area surrounding it are preserved as a Provincial Historical site.  It is preserving some of the short-grass prairie that reached right up to the eastern slopes of the Rockey Mountains.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
