Canada Reference Map, 2nd ed.
- Regular price $10.95
This is our second step at mapping the second largest country on earth, and we decided that a fresh approach was needed. Canada is too large to map in the same way that normal-sized countries can be portrayed, so we have prepared a political map of the country for this edition on one side, with each province or territory designated by a different color and the road and rail network portrayed. Please keep in mind that Nunavut is four times larger than Europe, and that at least three provinces are each larger than all of Europe put together, and the vastness of Canada starts to sink in. Open this side and imagine spending six days and seven nights on a train just going from Toronto to Vancouver. This is a very accurate map, prepared by the Canada Map Office, and is in English and French. The other side of the page is where we have become innovative. It consists of 10 large inset maps of particularly noteworthy parts of the country. For example, the Rocky Mountains and Yukon have expanded coverage, as does Newfoundland, the Toronto region, southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and the Ottawa to Montreal to Quebec City portion of central Canada. In other words, we portray the entire country on one side and the most important segments for tourism on the other side.
