Canada is the second largest country in the world spanning over 10 million square kilometers, and with a population of little over 35 million, it makes us one of the least densely populated countries in the world. But that hasn't stopped us from having a massive impact on the country's landscape. Alan Taylor, a senior editor at The Atlantic decided to spend his weekend exploring Canada's immense territory using Google Earth in a collection he calls: Human Landscapes of Canada and amongst this collection were 17 breathtaking areal shots of Quebec.
