SCULPTURE SAINT JOHN OPENING CEREMONY
At the Coast Guard Site on the Saint John Waterfront Friday, August 3, 2012 at 11:00 am

A couple of the eager sculptors started carving even before the opening ceremonies started.

The sculptors were taken to a local quarry where they selected the large chunks of granite they wanted to work with. Yesterday they were moved and placed in their preferred orientation to begin work.

Today during the opening ceremonies the Carnival Glory cruise ship is in port visiting.

An International Sculpture Symposium – Sculpture Saint John is being held August 2 to September 15 2012.

Six accomplished sculptors selected from around the globe are shaping mammoth chunks of stunning New Brunswick granite into works of art. The International Sculpture Symposium presents each artist with the opportunity to display their finished work in a prominent location in our region. Local interns from the region get to learn from the international experts.

These magnificent sculptures will be created throughout August and September at the Coast Guard site on the Saint John Waterfront. Cruise ship passengers, tourists, students and the general public will watch the sculptors in the midst of their creative process.

Detta är en översikt av 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
