Canada celebrates

CANADA celebrates its Pavilion Day today, which is also the country's National Day.

Michaelle Jean, Governor-General of Canada, will attend the ceremony before cultural performances and family-friendly activities.

Five troupes from Canada will perform in an evening celebration in the Expo Center.

During the day, there will be face-painting, a bit of hockey and cultural shows in the pavilion in Zone C.

The pavilion is themed "The Living City: Inclusive, Sustainable, Creative."

The C-shaped structure is the hub of events and activities aimed to create a brand-new impression of Canada as a vibrant and trendy place, much more than a magnificent country with vast tracts of snow and forest.

Cirque du Soleil, regarded as Canada's national treasure, is featured. The troupe made its debut on the Chinese mainland last summer, bringing the "Quidam" show to Shanghai.

A highlight of the pavilion is a virtual waterfall that changes scenes of Canada when it is touched. It also shows scenes of cities of the future, as imagined by Canadian children.
