Three features that I love about Canada By ansh Malhotra

Niagara Falls formed 12,000 years ago. Four Great lakes - Superion, Erie, Huron, Michigan etc supply water to the Niagara Falls. It is located in US- Canadian border. Niagara Falls consists of two waterfalls on the Niagara River, which marks the border between New York and Canada: The America falls located on the American side of of the border, the Canadian or horseshoe falls located on the Canadian shield. The formation of the falls began at the end of the Ice Age. Large torrents of water are released from melting ice, draining into Niagara Falls. water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean (The City of Niagara Falls).

It is important for Canadians to have beautiful places like Niagara Falls because it makes Canada a beautiful place as for visitors who come to Canada or for new immigrants who get come to Canada and Niagara falls also generates hydroelectricity which is very useful to Canada which don't pollutes air pollution and is a renewable source(The City of Niagara Falls).

"O Canada" is Canada's national anthem. Originally called "Chant national, " it was written in Quebec City by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routheir. It was performed on 24 June 1880. It began to be sung widely in French Canada at that time and later spread across Canada in various English-language versions, Of which best- known was written by Robert Stanley Weir in 1908. It was approved as Canada's national anthem by a Special Joint Commitee of the Senate and House of Commons on 15 March 1967. The current version was officially adopted as Canada's national anthem under the National Anthem Act on 27 June 1980. The Act was proclaimed by Governor General Edward Schreyer in a public ceremony on Parliament Hill on 1 July 1980(Canadian Encyclopedia).

O Canada is important to Canadians because I think it gives inspirations to the people and most the countries have laws to punish people who abuse or disrespect them. It can be identify as representing us as a group and nation(O Canada- History).

Pure Canadian maple syrup sourced from the maple tree not only tastes better than processed sweeteners made from corn syrup, it is also better for you. Based on research by the Canadian Nutrient File (Health Canada), maple syrup’s nutritional value is superior to other common sweeteners, such as honey, sugar, and even brown sugar. The calories in maple syrup are lower than in corn syrup and honey, averaging about 50 calories per tablespoon. Spring's warmer temperatures coax sugar maple trees to turn stored starch back into sugar. Sap is made as the tree mixes ground water with the sugar. The sap is mostly crystal clear water with about 2% sugar. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make each gallon of maple syrup which has a sugar content of 66.9% (Syrup | Historica Canada).

It is important to Canada because to evaporate the water from the sap people placed stones heated in a fire inside the pots of sap - a slow, laborious process. By watching the native peoples, Canada's early settlers learned how to tap maple trees and boil the sap down to make syrup. (Syrup | Historica Canada).
