Canada/Montreal, A squirrel is eating a french fries.
Squirrels cannot digest cellulose, so they must rely on foods rich in protein, carbohydrates, and fats. In temperate regions, early spring is the hardest time of year for squirrels, because buried nuts begin to sprout and are no longer available for the squirrel to eat, and new food sources have not become available yet. During these times, squirrels rely heavily on the buds of trees. Squirrels' diets consist primarily of a wide variety of plants, including nuts, seeds, conifer cones, fruits, fungi, and green vegetation. However, some squirrels also consume meat, especially when faced with hunger. Squirrels have been known to eat insects, eggs, small birds, young snakes, and smaller rodents.

Canada/Montreal, The Sir George Etienne Cartier Monument!
The Monument to George-Étienne Cartier is a national monument erected in 1919 located opposite Jeanne-Mance Park , east of Mount Royal in Montreal . He was raised by a committee which obtained subscriptions in all parts of the British Empire as well as in the United States. At the time of its construction, it was therefore of international as well as national significance.
It was commissioned to celebrate the hundredth birthday of George-Étienne Cartier in 1914 but was delayed because of the war . The inauguration ceremony took place on September 6, 1919. The monument was unveiled by King George V himself of the castle of Balmoral by the press of an electric button.
Sir George-Étienne Cartier, 1st Baronet, was a Canadian statesman and Father of Confederation.
Top 30 meters, it consists of 18 bronze figures placed with granite blocks. It is the work of the sculptor George William Hill.
The monument is topped by a winged Goddess of Liberty.

Canada/Kingston, Way to Kingston! The first capital of the Province of Canada on February 10, 1841. While its time as a political center was short (ending in 1844), the community has remained an important military installation. Kingston was the county seat of Frontenac County until 1998. Kingston is now a separated municipality from the County of Frontenac.
The original name is "Cataraqui".  Cataraqui today refers to an area around the intersection of Princess Street and Sydenham Road, where a village which later took that name was located. Cataraqui is also the name of a municipal electoral district.
Cataraqui was referred to as "the King's Town" or "King's Town" by 1787 in honour of King George III. The name was shortened to "Kingston" in 1788.
