like you said reza...canada now has nothing left to attract tourists. even the canadian dollar is high now. people came to canada because it was cheap, now its not. tourism is going down the drain...but at least there's still carrefour Laval...haha

I find Dubai has some nice buildings. Sometimes a little overdone as if they are trying to prove something.
However, one building that is particularily interesting is the Rotating Building which consists of 68 floors, who can rotate 360 degrees independantly.

Canada has more than laval, come on...it has historical buildings that date as far as 1998.
Seriously, that was an inscription on a building in Cote-Des-Neige haha
