The Wolseley Swinging Bridge is a suspension bridge in Wolseley, Saskatchewan. Within the small community, the bridge receives a lot of use, & signs advertise it from the TransCanada Highway. I had to pause several times for this panorama to let people pass, by then the ripples of the water had changed, giving some blur. A nearby sign reads:
Wolseley Swinging Bridge
Originally constructed in 1902 to provide pedestrian access to the downtown.
Over the years, the structure has been completely replaced twice. The present bridge was constructed in 2004 with donations from patrons, current and former residents of Wolseley and the surrounding area.
Their generosity ensures that future generations continue to enjoy crossing the lake around which Wolseley is built.
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.
