Terry Fox Monument Thunder Bay
Canada

The eastern edge of Thunder Bay is the site for one of the most poignant monuments in Canada, the Terry Fox Memorial. This memorial offers a breathtaking view overlooking the Sleeping Giant. A 9-foot high bronze rendering of Terry Fox stands on a 45-ton granite base laid on a foundation of local amethyst.

The cross-Canada Marathon of Hope undertaken by this courageous young man ended near Thunder Bay when his cancer flared again. Terry Fox continues to be an inspiration for people, young and old as a Terry Fox Run is held in communities across Canada each year in September to raise funds for cancer.

The Visitor Center is located beside the Memorial. Follow Hwy 11/17 (Thunder Bay Expressway) 1 km east of Hodder Ave.

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.
