Monument Tourist Spot
Terry Fox Monument commemorates one of Canada's most famous and heartbreaking figures and his quest to raise money and awareness for cancer research.

Head up to the monument and enjoy the sweeping view of the surrounding city and bay. Admire the 2.7 m (9 ft) bronze statue, set upon a massive granite base, and its depiction of Terry Fox in the final steps of his marathon.
