This video highlights some fascinating facets of Canadian life by examining the origins of its people, flora and fauna. The country's cultural diversity stems from waves of immigration that began thousands of years ago. Despite its bountiful resources, Canada's ruggedness and size have presented challenges to those who have made it their home--challenges that have also inspired such ingenious inventions as the snowmobile!
TRANSIT features five videos that examine Canada's rich and diverse geography. Each film in the series combines spectacular cinematography and lively animation, using the Earth's basic elements as themes: Air explores climate; Water showcases the country's network of rivers, lakes and oceans; Land looks at the vast territory that makes Canada the second largest country in the world; Fire documents old and new sources of energy; plus Life, which develops the themes of people, fauna and flora.
