On the edge of Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver, the Harbour Green park is the largest continuous waterfront park in the downtown area. Just north of the convention centre and just south of the main marinas, the Harbour Green park even has a dock for leisure craft to moor up to 3 hours at.

Towards the back of the Harbour Green field sits four large chunks of cedar, a public art installation by Eric Neighbour called Shipwreck. The four cedar trunks resemble a fallen column. The work wasn't completed by Eric Beighbour alone though- more than 1400 volunteers chiseled away at the cedar for over 2 months to make this artwork a possibility.

Questa è una vista generale di 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
