What Affects Life in a Region?

There are many different ways of life across Canada and not everyone lives the same way.   Examples of Canadian living are:  some people live on boats instead of in houses, some people eat seal and moose meat and some people take the subway to get to school every day. Even though there are some differences, there are many things we all have in common. For example, everyone goes to school.
