In the Rocky Mountains, valley bottoms are critical. Not only do they provide high quality wildlife habitat, but they also offer a way for wildlife to move through an otherwise inhospitable mountain environment. Valleys are also important to people. Most human activity in the Rockies, including roads, railways, buildings, trails and facilities, is confined to the valley bottoms. This competition for space poses a significant problem, especially for wide-ranging species such as wolves and grizzly bears.
Guestbook My Beautiful Country
I have lived in Canada all my life. During this time, I have had the opportunity to travel to many parts of the world. I embark on these trips to learn about new cultures, often new languages, meet new people, explore new landscapes and gain a greater understanding of the history of that country. To me, this is a fascinating way to appreciate the vastness of the world that we live in.
I have always said that, "the best part of being away, is coming home." Coming home to Canada. The more I travel, the more I appreciate the freedom that Canada offers. We have the freedom to travel abroad and be warmly welcomed as a "friendly Canadian". We have the freedom to grow personally and professionally without restrictions. There is the freedom to experience the various cultures, religions and backgrounds of the people who live in our country. I believe that this valuable freedom builds an underlying respect for each other, enabling us to live peacefully. This freedom can easily be taken for granted, as I have experienced that not all countries offer their residents the similar freedom that I enjoy by living in Canada. I am proud to be Canadian and to have chosen to live in Canada.
