CN Tower

The CN Tower is a major part of Canada because it stands as one of the 7 wonders, which was classified in 1995. It began construction on February 6, 1973 and finished in June, 1976. it took just over 40 months but it was completed. The overall cost of making the CN Tower was $63 million. The structure can withstand up to an earthquake of 8.5 on the Richter scale also can withstand winds up to 418 km/h. The CN Tower was the worlds largest standing structure until 2007(McMordie). Why this is important to me? This is important to me because I find it amazing how this structure was the tallest building in the world until 2007. that is also why i think this should also be important to other people and this was a huge thing for Canadian history.

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a major non-man made attraction in Canada. It is located in located southeastern Ontario, Canada, and about 12,000 years old. The water flows approximately 35 miles/hour. This water flow generates a lot of hydro electricity and covers a land area of 212 sq. km. Water from Niagara ends up in lake Ontario, the water is fresh water and if came from melting glaciers.In March of 1848, the waters stopped flowing over Niagara's cliff even though it was temporary. The Horseshoe Falls are 180 feet tall which is amazing (Niagara Falls Facts). Niagara Falls are made out of 3 falls which are the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. The Horseshoe Falls being the tallest of them all (Niagara Falls Facts for Kids). There are many attractions there such as Louis Tussaud's English Wax Museum, The Minolta Tower rises 325 feet over the falls, Skylon Tower rises 775 feet above the Falls and many more (Niagara Falls Facts). Over 30 million people visit the falls each year, which is so cool because people come to see something nature has created (Niagara Falls Facts for Kids). This is important to me because now most people do not apperciate nature and people are going out to look at these falls which are clearly a major part of Canada.

Maple Syrup

Canada exports maple syrup to approximately 50 countries and has produced over 67.6 million pounds of maple syrup (Facts About Maple Syrup). Maple syrup is important to my cause i love it on my pancakes and its important to Canada because Canada is known for its maple syrup.
