Say What?[edit]

A topographic map of Canada, showing elevations shaded from green to brown (higher), with elevation-legend overlaid at lower left. Nearby countries are shaded darker (compare elevation shades at Canadian borders).

This is a task force for volcanoes of Canada and related subjects. The most important volcanoes of Canada are illustrated above. Depending on how much support we get, the goal is either a Featured or a Good topic. Involved parties would be WP:CANADA and WP:VOLCANO. The topic covers all of the volcanoes in Canada, provincial parks noted for protecting volcanoes and volcanic landscapes, people and places notable for their association with a Canadian volcano, as well as the core article, Volcanism of Canada. All interested persons can simply scribble their name under "Interested." I hope that I we can work togethor to get what I think is a very important topic where it should be! Also see the Volcanism of Hawaii Workgroup.
