Another Canada

When people think of Canada and then compare it
to the United States of America, they always tend to think it
is similar. At least I did until I started this project. I always
thought that Canada was a clone or mirror of America, but I
was wrong. About 99.75% of the Canadian people consider
ice as something that they use in a drink or something that is
always on the road that needs salt. For the rest of the
Canadians, ice is a major barrier of life. The ice can be used
as a helpful thing to. It could be crafted into a refrigerator. It
could also be used as a racetrack for snowmobiles. Now
how many ice refrigerators do you find in America? I don’t
think the climate in America and support something like that.
Eighty percent of Canada is in a subartic zone. While
America sits comfortably in the tropical wet-dry to
continental humid climate zone. The main population in
Canada is rested in between the January temps. of -2°F and
14°F. Whereas Americas’ main population is in the 41°F to
32°F range. For Canada, the climate reaches the extremes
during winter. About 95% of Canada is 14°F and below.
America’s winter is about 23°F-41°F. The dramatic
difference may have affected the difference of population.
The average population in Canada is 26 people per mi. ²,
compared to 128 people per mi. ² in America. I think that
the people are more densely populated in the US because
the weather is more tolerable. The weather also affects what
is grown and produced in the two countries. Canada grows
Timber, sheep, corn, wheat and a little bit of grapes. But
America produces sheep, timber grapes, citrus, cattle,
wheat, cotton, sorghum, sugar cane Tabasco and corn. As
you can see America produces a lot more than Canada
does. Canada’s climate prevents them from produces as
much or having as much as a variety. Half of Canada’s land
is forest and woodlands and the rest is non- argiculterable.
When the area of Canada is 3,849,672 sq. mi., the country
loses out on a lot of production without that half. As for
America (3,732,396 sq. mi.), half is livestock ranching and
the other half is mixed farming and livestock. So the main
production is livestock. The weather and climate provides a
perfect environment for the livestock. The GDP is $611
billion; $21,800 per capita, when America is $6.379 trillion;
$24,700 per capita. The difference is immense. America is
producing more while Canada is lacking the capability that
the US has. Another factor the helps or holds down the
manufacturing is precipitation. Canada receives about 20 to
40 inches a year. Which helps the growth of the main
products, timber. The US has more of a larger range of 10
to 120 inches. In the 10 inches area, sheep and citrus is
grown. For Canada, the 20 inches area also produces sheep
a long with cattle. The range of precipitation of America
contributes to the diversity of products. Comparing America
to Canada is like looking at two completely different cars,
one car has better features while the other doesn’t have
much. Although the two countries are located right next to
each other, they aren’t particularly the same. The main thing
prevents Canada to have as much as America is its climate.
The cold climate provides an unargiculterable land. Lacking
good weather and good land prohibits Canada to have the
population that the US has. People go where there is a good
life for them and Canada doesn’t provide as much America.
But I do have to say, they do have a good hockey and
baseball team.
