British Columbia Report
The Canadian providence of British Columbia is as beautiful as it is
rich in natural resources.
First, the two main regions of the providence are the Interior Plains
and the many divisions of mountains. The Interior Plains are in the far
northeastern part of the land.
The chain of mountains are called the
Cordilleran Region. The eastern part of the Cordilleran Region are named the
Rocky Mountains. A little farther to the east that part of the mountains are
named the Interior System. These make up the majority of the mountains.
Closer to the Pacific Ocean the mountains take on yet another name,
this time it is the Coast Mountains. On the islands of Queen Charlotte Island
and Vancouver Island there is a small chain of mountains running along the
western coast called the Insular Mountains. Before the Coast Mountains
reach the ocean they drop to what is called the Coastal Trough, which is
where most of the population lives. The cities of Vancouver and Victoria are
located in this trough.
Victoria is also the capitol of British Columbia.Forestry in this part of Canada is quite a sizable business. Even
though it only makes up about 7% of the work force is provides much of the
wood products we use. Manufacturing uses about half of the work force in
British Columbia which is the group of people that change most of the wood
into products that are usable (wood pulp and paper).
Construction comes in
second with about a quarter of the jobs here. Although fishing only uses a
few people out of the work force it brings more revenue than any other
providence with its rich fishing waters and streams full of salmon and other
bountiful fish. With a population near 3-4 million people British Columbia
isnt a substantial providence, but it plays an important role among the
people of Canada. Words
