|It sometimes seems to me that too much of Canada is Big Beauty - mountains, rivers, forests - and too little is the Little Beauty of the countryside. When the glaciers came in the last ice age, they picked up all our top soil and carried it south to the States. Across the country there are areas of good farmland, but the farms must compete with the people who build cities where the climate is good. This is especially true of Ontario south of the Shield, and of the Fraser Valley in B.C. American film producers love the area because you can find just about anything here, and if you shoot it just right or when the weather is hazy you don't have to see the mountains. I wonder if that will still be true in a generation.|
