The geography of canada: an introduction: may 2nd, 2011. Two sub-disciplines: human geography, physical geography. Three themes: humans and the land, regional studies, spatial analysis, what is where, where there, and why care? (gritzner, 2002) Regions are intellectual creations: regions just don"t exist but they exist as a consequence of what we decide, do not exist naturally and created by people with a particular purpose in mind. Canada with its diversity of regions, can be viewed as a mosaic of regional landscapes. Regional variations part of the essence of canada, what"s it like there? , what kind of people are canadians? (it"s different in each of those places) Question: how can we best divide canada into regions: draw a line across canada- 70% living below whereas above the line would have less of a population. Something to think about: what country is most like canada, canada vs united states. Due to colonial history and cultural influences: canada vs britain.
