Have you spent the past decade believing that Canada is nothing more than the friendly, innocuous country north of the US? Good — that’s what they wanted you to think. In reality, Canada has given the past 10 years of its life and $US200 million dollars in taxpayer money to file the ultimate claim: 2.6 million square kilometres of Arctic seafloor that, yes, includes the North Pole.
Louis Helbig is cataloging aerial photographs of Canadian villages drowned by the construction of the St Lawrence Seaway on his website Sunken Villages. The photos are haunting and gorgeous, almost emerald-like, but often difficult to read. Outlines of houses and roads barely emerge from the silt like scenes from a dream by J.G.

The West Edmonton Mall is the largest shopping centre in North America, a 465,000sqm-waterslide-and-roller-coaster-filled alternate reality where Albertans can escape brutal winters and mosquito-clouded summers. But in “Waterpark”, the directorial debut of Canadian filmmaker Evan Prosofsky, the shopping centre is cast as a place where placid indoor humans spend their entire lives being entertained.
That’s it, I’m moving to Canada. They know how to have fun. Even in politics! In Canada’s House of Commons today, there was an incredible ‘debate’ about creating an international zombie strategy “so that a zombie invasion does not turn into a zombie apocalypse.”
