The Universiade Pavilion (1983), better known as "the Butterdome" was built for the World Universiade Games and the University of Alberta's 75th Anniversary. This facility contains full-scale facilities for track and field events as well as facilities for numerous other sports including volleyball, basketball, tennis, badminton, gymnastics, soccer, European handball, and a climbing wall. The Pavillion is connected to the Van Vliet Physical Education and Recreation Centre. This space is also used for various events including student orientation, tradeshows, craft fairs, community events, and sporting events.
This building is located on 87 Avenue between 116 and 114 Street on the North Campus of the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Alberta, 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.
