Postcards Received from Canada


508.  Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA
Hello!  Greetings from the north!  I live in the small city of Port Moody, which is near Vancouver in the lower mainland of BC.  I'm very happy to call it home.  Carmen
299. Think Skink
Ontario, Canada
Common Five-lined skinks have the ability to "drop" their tails if grasped in order to escape.  The moving tail gragment will distract the predator while the skink escapes.  The missing tail with grow back over time, but will not be the same colour or length as before.  The Common Five-lined Skink is Ontario's ONLY lizard and they are a species at risk. 
Hello!  I love telling people about Canada.  I hope that some day you can visit the "Great White North".  I love camping at Pinery Park!
31% of Canada is forest...
Canada has more lakes than all other countries combined!
and...
20% of the world's fresh water is in Canada.

A Postage-Paid Canadian Postcard
07/05/2016
Hello from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada!  Winnipeg is the capital of the Province of Manitoba.  The building on this card is the government building with a "golden boy" on top of the dome - it was a gift from France.
Happy Postcrossing, Vera

339.  The Cranberry Lady, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Hello grade 4 class in Tucson, Arizona!  I am from a suburb of Vancouver, BC.  Here we grow most of the cranberries in the world.  Isn't it such a strange way that they are harvested?  Do you like cranberry sauce with your turkey?   They were probably grown here for "Ocean Spray"!

489.  St. John's, Newfoundland, CANADA
Hi Chris,
Greetings from St. John's NL in Canada.  I get a kick out of this card because it's so 'stereotypical Canada' but being from Maine you are probably familiar.
    I hope you're having a great day!  Sabina

502.   Alberta, CANADA
Greetings from Alberta, Canada.  Hope this made you smile.  Have a Great Day!  David
