Eddie Said:What are some major economic activities within Canada East?
We Answered:The same as in any developed economy: education, construction, retail sales (food, clothing, toys, furniture, etc.), personal services (health care, hair care, fitness centers, etc.), small businesses (local banks, insurance agents, lawyers, etc.)
Only a small part of any economy is directly involved in the economy's exports.
As for "Canada East", just which section do you mean? If Eastern Canada,
then its exports include everything from government to electricity (but note how few people are involved in electricity produced by hydro-electric dams in Quebec)
If Atlantic Canada:
then government and electricity aren't major exports, but wood products are.
In either case, each province has a Wikipedia article with a section on the economy of the province. For example:
Arthur Said:How do you think Canada’s Olympic athletes will do in the 2008 Beijing summer games?
We Answered:As much as I am an avid fan of the Olympics, I honestly don't expect much change from the last Summer Olympics. The government does not care much about sport on an international level to support it--it's only now that Canada is hosting the Winter Olympics in Vancouver for 2010 that the government is throwing in dollars. Private-sector support is there, whether it is RBC or McDonalds, but it take a larger effort from all levels--governments, schools, businesses, etc.--to create competitive, winning athletes.
This may slowly change as initiatives are in place in elementary schools to have physical activities on a daily basis (DPA--Daily Physical Activity). Another is an initiative to introduce swimminng and water safety for children. These steps are put in place to encourage safe, active, and healthy living, and in turn can encourage an appreciation to fitness and sport.
This system seems to be standard for the province of Quebec. If you look closely, it seems that most of the successful Canadian athletes hail from Quebec. The Canadian Olympic Committee points out that, from the efforts of Maurice Gagne, a Quebecer himself, that "Quebec athletes have won nearly 20 Olympic medals since 1980."
And here's a quote from Marc Gélinas, the COC's Director of Athlete & Community Relations, regarding the creation of a designated day for sports and physical activity by the Quebec government:
"Sport is an integral part of our culture from the grassroots level to the Olympic podium, and I am pleased to see that Minister Fournier and the Quebec government have once again taken the lead in this country in advancing sport and physical activity."
It seems that Quebec has it together when it comes to supporting sport. The rest of Canada has to step up to the plate. If not, then the same results will occur. It comes down to a mentality about the significance of sport to Canada--is there any?
You see, financial support should not happen simply for the Olympics. We should be able to see star athletes at the top of their sport, be it gymnastics, track & field, or water polo, throughout the duration of the year. It's great that rowing receives considerable amounts of funding, but why wait til one or a few athletes do "suprisingly" well to jump aboard the band-wagon in support? Isn't it apparent that support breeds success? Canada doesn't do well in field hockey on an international stage--perhaps if support was directed that way, then that could possibly change? Again, it comes down to what Canada really cares about.
In 2000, we saw what Australia did. They are similar to us: a Commonwealth nation, good economy, peacekeeping nation. Both standards of education are parallel. Yet Australia decided to breed success by working at grassroot levels to encourage sport and foster an attitude of success. Not Canada.
In 2008, look at what China will do. They have been warned about their human right practices. They have been burdened with diseases like SARS and bird-flu. Their safety and health practices, their way of living, their mortality rates may differ than Canada. But they will shine and rise as a nation, and Canadians will shake their heads and say "How can this be? But we are Canada?"
To understand is to know, and if you have high hopes for success of Canada in Beijing, then remain being optimistic. I hope for the best too, especially since I understand how things may really play out.

Samantha Said:I'm visiting Toronto, Canada in 2 weeks. Can I get some sugestions on places to go and places to eat?
We Answered:1. DISTILLERY HISTORIC DISTRICT. In just the past few years, The Distillery District has become one of the most romantic and enjoyable destinations in the City. The Distillery District is Toronto’s first pedestrian only village and the city’s only historic district. From the brick lined streets to the European piazza styled areas, The Distillery District is, as the Globe and Mail asserts, “a picture postcard draw”.
Like Soho in the 1960’s, The Distillery District has become an area associated with creative thinking and expression. The area’s rebirth has been dedicated to promoting arts, culture and entertainment. Over the past few years this new landmark facility has attracted the best of the best, including internationally acclaimed galleries, artists from all corners of the arts spectrum, theatres, restaurants, cafes and boutique retailers.
2. TORONTO ISLAND PARK. The islands are located just offshore from the Canadian city of Toronto, and provide shelter for Toronto Harbour. The islands are a popular recreational destination. Bicycles and quadricycles can be rented on the islands.
There are several swimming beaches on the islands, including Centre Island Beach, Gibraltar Point Beach, Hanlan's Point Beach and Ward's Island Beach. Hanlan's Point Beach includes an officially recognized clothing optional section.
3. CHINATOWN. Toronto's Chinatown is an ethnic enclave in Downtown Toronto with a high concentration of ethnic Chinese residents and businesses, extending along Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue. It is now one of the largest Chinatowns in North America and one of several major Chinese-Canadian communities in the Greater Toronto Area.
Its shops and restaurants, including Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai.
4. NIAGARA FALLS are massive waterfalls on the Niagara River, straddling the international border separating the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. The falls are 75 miles (120 km) south-southeast of Toronto, Ontario.
Niagara Falls is composed of two major sections separated by Goat Island: Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side of the border and American Falls on the United States side. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls also is located on the American side, separated from the main falls by Luna Island. While not exceptionally high, the Niagara Falls are very wide. More than six million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water fall over the crest line every minute in high flow.
The oldest and best known tourist attraction at Niagara Falls is the Maid of the Mist boat cruise, named for an ancient Ongiara Indian mythical character, which has carried passengers into the whirlpools beneath the Falls since 1846. Cruise boats operate from boat docks on both sides of the falls. From the Canadian side, floodlights illuminate both sides of the Falls for several hours after dark (until midnight).
The whole family will be thrilled by Free Pizza Pizza Fireworks over the Falls, every Friday and Sunday from May 18 until September 2, as well as Wednesdays in July and August and Fridays from September 5 to October 10. All displays are scheduled for 10:00 p.m. and are weather dependent.
5. ROGERS CENTRE. Rogers Centre is recognized as one of the world's premiere entertainment centres, which since its spectacular opening on June 3, 1989, has achieved the highest honours in the stadium entertainment industry. Over 2,000 events have been staged and more than 50 million people have visited Rogers Centre - famous the world over for its fully retractable roof.
A unique feature of the Rogers Centre is its Videoboard, one of the world's largest, measuring 110 feet wide by 33 feet high - bringing everyone even closer to the action. Other features include: Premier Fitness, Rogers Centre Tour Experience, Theatre, state-of-the-art broadcast facilities, the Renaissance Hotel, and several restaurants and bars, including the world famous Hard Rock Café.
There was $5 million in artwork commissioned in 1989, located both outside and inside the facility. Canadian artists include Michael Snow, who created The Audience (the portrayal of fans at the northeast and northwest entrances); A Tribute to Baseball, depicting great moments in the long, event-filled history of baseball crafted by Lutz Haufschild appears above the southeast and southwest entrances at Gate 5; The Art of the Possible by Mimi Gellman, is a sculpture of glass and steel located at the north end of the building on Level 100, as a tribute to all of the men and women who built the facility. This sculpture incorporates more than 2,000 signatures of these unsung heroes. Mimi Gellman also decided to commemorate the history of the site - included in the mural are images of some of the artifacts found during excavation, such as musket balls, pottery and bottles from the turn of the century. Two other sculptures displayed outside of the facility are Salmon Run by Susan Schelle and Spiral Fountain by Judith Schwarz.
It is one of Toronto's top three tourist attractions and a model for architects of future domed stadiums currently being built around the world.
6. CITY PASS. Save almost half the price of box office admission to Toronto’s most exciting attractions with Toronto CityPass ($65.28 USD).

You have nine leisurely days from the day of first use to enjoy admission to each attraction once, and will avoid most ticket lines.
7. MUSEUMS. I recommend you the Bata Shoe Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art and Royal Ontario Museum.
8. CN TOWER. Defining the Toronto skyline, the CN Tower is Canada's most recognizable and celebrated icon. At a height of 553.33m (1,815 ft., 5 inches), it is Canada’s National Tower, the World's Tallest Building, an important telecommunications hub, and the centre of tourism in Toronto.
Located at a height of 342 m (1,122 ft) you will find the Glass Floor and Outdoor Observation Deck.
At 346 m (1,136 ft.) is Horizons Café and the Indoor Observation Deck. Horizons Café offers casual dining for those looking to enjoy a light meal at the top of the world.
