Why I Love Canada by davin

The Toronto Raptors

One reason I like Canada is the Toronto Raptors. Originally The Toronto Huskies,They started as an organization on April 23, (Laying the Groundwork for the NBA in Toronto). They currently play in the Air Canada Center in Toronto, the stadium can hold up to 19,800 people and a ticket can cost anywhere from $21-$5060 (ESPN). As of January 2016 the raptors are worth near $980-million (Toronto Raptors worth $980-million, rank 14th in Forbes' team valuations.). That makes them a very valuable to Toronto because they are one of the most valuable teams in Canada. The Blue jays are only worth $610-million to put that into perspective (Forbes: Value of Blue Jays jumps to $870 million).

Why I like the Raptors

I Like the Toronto Raptors because they are my home team and they are who I support. I love the team, and I'm not just a bandwagon fan. I'm not a Raptors fan just because of their recent success I am a Raptors fan because they are the team that represent us Canadians in the NBA. We have also had amazing players like Vince Carter and Tracey McGradey and I liked the way they played, especially Vince Carter dunks. the Toronto Raptors have always been a big part of Canada to me and they always will be.

Toronto

Another reason I like Canada is the city of Toronto. The city of Toronto is an awesome place to visit, it has even been put in the New York Times top 10 places to visit in 2016 (Kozicka), Toronto is also the most populated city in Canada with an estimated population of 4,753,120 (Canada's Top 10 Most Populous Cities). That is a lot considering the next closest city (Montreal) has a whole million less people than Toronto (Canada's Top 10 Most Populous Cities). That surely must make Toronto a great part of Canada.

Why I like Toronto

I personally like the city because of the atmosphere, a lot of people there are very nice and the city is full of places to go. I have gone there a bunch of times and it has just been a great time. Living in Toronto is something I want to do in the future. it is definitely in my opinion one of the best places to live in North America. It just seems like a really eventful place and I like that.

Nature

another reason I like Canada is the nature.about 7.6% of the land in Canada is fresh water (Boyce). There are lots of places to go and things to see. there are the northern lights that you can see and such. You can visit Niagara Falls, although they aren't the largest falls they are still a beautiful sight to see (Ashford).

Why I Like Nature

I like nature because of how beautiful it is. I love to admire forests and lakes. also i play a lot of football and you need grass to play football and grass is nature. Nature is really Important to the world and I think that makes it significant enough to be a factor in me liking Canada, so its a good thing.
