WHat does canada have to offer By: Parmit Sandhu

Canada is celebrating its 150th year of independence. Canada is a great place with lots of different wonders and things to offer. I have lots of great memories in my place of residence. I have living in Canada for for about 12 years. There are lots of different things that Canada gave me, that I really love. Out of them all, My top 3 favorite things that Canada gave me would be, Niagara Falls, Poutine, and basketball. These three are my most favorite things that Canada has given me. They are from three different categories as well, scenery, food, and sports.

First of what Canada has to offer, the Niagara Falls. The Niagara Falls is a water fall located in the city of Niagara, ON. The falls are also in the U.S and is connected with Canada through several bridges. It is also one of the seven wonders of the world. It is one of the most luxurious falls and Canada is the only place you can get the best view of the falls. It has also frozen only twice ever which is a great wonder to see. The image used shows one of the times it was completely frozen. It is said that The Falls have been roaring for about 12,000 years. Currently, Niagara Falls wears its way back another approximately 1 foot/year. The Falls is a really wonderful place for me and I have made a lot of memories there with family and friends. These are just some of the reasons why I would put The Falls as one of my greatest things of what Canada has to offer.

The next thing in my three things that Canada has to offer is the poutine. Poutine is known to be one of Canadas national foods. Canada is the only place you can get a poutine aside from New York. There are many stories on how the poutine came to be, but there is one story that is most believed to be the creation of the poutine. The on thing that is for sure though, that it came from Quebec in the 1950s. The story that most people know about is that it originates from a restaurant formerly called Le Lutin qui rit in Warwick. A client named, Eddy Lainesse, would have asked the owner, Fernand Lachance, to mix the cheese curds with the fries. This is a very tasty dish and it is one of my favourites. Canada offer this amazing dish and I recommend this dish to everyone. This is the second best thing I believe Canada has to offer

The last thing I believe Canada has to offer is basketball. Although basketball was not invented IN Canada, it was invented BY a Canadian. Which means basketball's roots are Canadian. Basketball is my all time favourite sport and I love playing it. It was invented by James Naismith in 1891. From the original game with 13 basic rules, basketball has progressed to a highly skilled sport with an intricate blend of timing, intuition and co-operation. Naismith had found a way to throw a ball without force but skill. This is the last thing I believe Canada has to offer ( in my list ) because basketball is played by everyone around the world, but in the end it is Canadian.

These three things are not the limit of Canada. There are so many other things Canada has given its communities, but these are on the top of my list. I hope you enjoyed reading about what Canada has to offer. Thank you!
