This Inukshuk... like the 2010 Vancouver Olympics insignia... can be found on the famous Lakeshore Blvd recreational trails along the Toronto waterfront.

The inscription dedication plate for this Inukshuk reads:

World Youth Day has been a true navigational guide for millions of young people throughout the world.  The Toronto Inukshuk invites each one of us to become beacons of light and hope, striving for justice and peace in this world.  This Toronto Inukshuk legacy, co-chaired by Mr. Tony Dionisio and Councillor Joe Pantalone, is a reminder of the immense, wonderful gathering of young people and His Holiness Pope John Paul II held in Toronto during World Youth Day, July 23-28, 2002

This panorama was taken in Toronto, Canada

This is an overview of 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, Vancouver
