Canada’s Geography

In Canada, there are many active volcanoes like Mount Meager, Mount Garibaldi, Mount Cayley and the Mount Edziza. Thus, you can experience many earthquakes in the country. Therefore, the country is geologically active. Record states that the volcanic eruption of Tseax Cone in 1775 caused a catastrophic disaster, killing 2,000 Nisga'a people and the destruction of their village in the Nass River valley of northern British Columbia; the eruption produced a 22.5 km (14 mi) lava flow and according to legend of the Nisga'a people, it blocked the flow of the Nass River.
