Less than a decade ago it was never a thing to be truly proud to be Canadian. Though every citizen has loved Canada for decades upon decades, it has only been recently that Canada has begun to show off its pride to the rest of the world. This’ll be showcased the Canada Day weekend falls upon the country in a week.

Everyone in the country will hear the sounds of fireworks, they’ll experience the true joy of what it’s like to be Canadian. Instagram, an application used by millions to billions of people around the world has taken it upon themselves to challenge Canadians to showcase their pride of the country in hopes that this year on Canada’s Day it’ll be known worldwide that Canada is proud of what is has become. Along with this challenge users are meant to describe what they love about being Canadian, what drives them to show off their pride while in another country or how they feel when others bash our country in a negative manner.

The results should be interesting as there has never been a campaign such as this one for Canadian citizens to participate in, at least not one on a global scale. Canadians around the globe will also be able to showcase their love of the country. The Canadian Government also plans on going through these Instagram posts to find out better what their citizens love about this country or what this country needs to become better in the future years to come.

Vancouver, one of the largest cities in Canada is truly rising to the challenge this summer as their goal is to make the metropolis into a green urban environment. In order to do this Vancouver has revealed their intent to work alongside multiple corporations in the city to create large flower gardens or mini forests on top of their buildings.

This requires a large amount of maintenance but the end result is that workers have a more peaceful area to go to on their lunch breaks or before work. This’ll also create a far better air quality in the city as most who live in Vancouver already walk or use Bicycle’s to travel the big city. Cars are slowly becoming less relevant as Vancouver continues to go greener. The city will also be placing small gardens all around the city across the sidewalks, much like a garden bed but slightly bigger in order to create more greenery and oxygen within the city.

This is reason why Vancouver is quickly becoming one of the best places to live in Canada. Vancouver has already mastered their waterfront and as their continue to perfect this city it’s ensured that Vancouver will become one of the most beautiful metropolis’s in the world. It’s just a matter if cities such as Edmonton or Toronto can follow the same steps as their fellow Canadian city. Toronto is the largest city in Canada but it also by far the most disgusting & vastly needs to take the same steps as their sister city Vancouver.
