Burnaby is a city in British Columbia, located to the east of Vancouver. It is the third-largest city in British Columbia by population, surpassed only by nearby Surrey and Vancouver. Burnaby was incorporated in 1892 and achieved City status in 1992, one hundred years after incorporation, it is the seat of Metro Vancouver's regional government. At incorporation, the municipality's citizens unanimously chose to name it after the legislator, speaker and explorer Robert Burnaby, private secretary to Colonel Richard Moody, the first land commissioner for the Colony of British Columbia, in the mid-19th century. In 1859 Burnaby had surveyed the freshwater lake near. Moody chose to name it Burnaby Lake. In the first 30 to 40 years after its incorporation, the growth of Burnaby was influenced by its location between the expanding urban centres of Vancouver and New Westminster, it first served as a rural agricultural area supplying nearby markets. It served as an important transportation corridor between Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the Interior, continues to do so.
As Vancouver expanded and became a metropolis, Burnaby was one of the first-tier bedroom-community suburbs of Vancouver itself, along with the city and district of North Vancouver, Richmond. During the suburbanization of Burnaby, "Mid-Century Vernacular" homes were built by the hundreds to cope with population increase, these houses are still common in the city. Burnaby has shifted in character over time from rural to suburban to urban. Burnaby occupies 98.60 square kilometres and is located at the geographical centre of the Metro Vancouver area. Situated between the city of Vancouver on the west and Port Moody and New Westminster on the east, Burnaby is further bounded by Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River on the north and south respectively. Burnaby and New Westminster collectively occupy the major portion of the Burrard Peninsula; the elevation of Burnaby ranges from sea level to a maximum of 370 metres atop Burnaby Mountain. Due to its elevation, the city of Burnaby experiences quite a bit more snowfall during the winter months than nearby Vancouver or Richmond.
Overall, the physical landscape of Burnaby is one of hills, valleys and an alluvial plain. The land features and their relative locations have had an influence on the location and form of development in the city. Burnaby is home to many commercial firms. British Columbia's largest commercial mall, the Metropolis at Metrotown, is located in Burnaby. Still, Burnaby's ratio of park land to residents is one of the highest in North America, it maintains some agricultural land along the Fraser foreshore flats in the Big Bend neighbourhood along its southern perimeter. Major parklands and waterways in Burnaby include Central Park, Robert Burnaby Park, Kensington Park, Burnaby Mountain, Still Creek, the Brunette River, Burnaby Lake, Deer Lake, Squint Lake. Given that the Simon Fraser University weather station is located 365 meters above sea level on Burnaby Mountain, the climate shown is cooler and wetter with more snowfall, as compared to the rest of the city; the SkyTrain rapid transit system, based in Burnaby, crosses the city from east to west in two places: the Expo Line crosses the south along Kingsway and the Millennium Line follows Lougheed Highway.
The SkyTrain has encouraged closer connections to New Westminster and Surrey, as well as dense urban development at Lougheed Town Centre on the city's eastern border, at Brentwood Town Centre in the centre-west and, most notably, at Metrotown in the south. Major north-south streets crossing the City include Boundary Road, Willingdon Avenue, Royal Oak Avenue, Kensington Avenue, Sperling Avenue, Gaglardi Way, Cariboo Road, North Road. East-west routes linking Burnaby's neighbouring cities to each other include Hastings Street, Barnet Highway, the Lougheed Highway, Canada Way and Marine Drive/Marine Way. Douglas Road, which used to cross the city from northwest to southeast, has been absorbed by the Trans-Canada Highway and Canada Way. Since the 1990s, Burnaby has developed a network of cycling trails, it is well served by Metro Vancouver's bus system, run by the Coast Mountain Bus Company, a division of TransLink. According to the 2011 Census, Statistics Canada reported that Burnaby had a population of 223,218 who resided in 86,839 of its 91,383 total dwellings, a 10.1% change from the 2006 census.
With a land area of 90.61 km2, it had a population density of 2,463.5/km2 in 2011. The median age is 39.8 years old younger than the British Columbia median of 41.9 years old. Burnaby's religious profile: 41.6% No religious affiliation 42.9% Christian 4.8% Buddhist 4.5% Muslim 2.9% Sikh 2.2% Hindu 0.3% Jewish 0.8% Other religions While Burnaby occupies about 4% of the land area of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, it accounted for about 10% of the region's population in 2001. It is the third most populated urban centre in British Columbia with an estimated population of 205,261. Like much of Greater Vancouver, Burnaby has always had large ethnic and immigrant communities: to cite two examples, North Burnaby near Hastings Street has long been home to many Italian restaurants and recreational bocce games, while Metrotown's ever-sprouting condominium towers in the south have been fuelled in part by more recent arrivals from China and South Korea. According to the 2006 Census, 54% of Burnaby residents have a mother tongue that is
Mexican Football Federation
The Mexican Football Federation is the governing body of association football in Mexico. It administers the Mexico national team, the Liga MX and all affiliated amateur sectors, is in charge of promoting, directing and supervising competitive football in Mexico; the Federation has three operational centres: the Central Office, the High Performance Centre and the Training Centre. FEMEXFUT is a member of the CONCACAF and FIFA, therefore it must comply with the statutes and ideals of world football's governing body; the Mexican Federation of Football was established on 23 August 1927 under its first president Humberto Garza Ramos. In 1929 it became affiliated with the FIFA, became affiliated with CONCACAF in 1961; the Mexican Football Federation's governing body is the General Assembly that conforms with the participation of the Liga MX with 55% of the votes. Its executive and administrative body is the National Council, which comprises five members, one from each of the divisions mentioned, are elected every four years.
The league is composed of four professional divisions: Liga MX, Ascenso MX, Liga Premier, Tercera División. The Liga MX Femenil is the top level of women's football in Mexico; the issue of multi-team ownership has been a debated one within the owners of the professional football clubs and the Femexfut. Out of Mexico’s 34 clubs in the top two divisions, five ownership groups control half the teams, Grupo Pachuca, Grupo Salinas, Grupo Caliente and Orlegi Deportes wield much influence. Most of the owners that have more than one team have them split between the first and second divisions and are in place to promote player development. In May 2013, the owners of the 18 Liga MX clubs voted in favor of a proposal to ban one person or company from owning more than one team; the proposal was introduced after Carlos Slim, whose telecommunications company América Móvil owns a 30% stake in Grupo Pachuca, was rumored to want to acquire Guadalajara. The ruling will not require club owners to sell one of their current Liga MX teams, but will prevent them from acquiring any more.
The issue was once again prevalent in November 2013 when TV Azteca, owner of Monarcas Morelia, paid out 124 shareholders of Club Atlas US$50 million to acquire the club, which for years had been struggling financially. In September 2012, former Mexican Football Federation President Justino Compeán confirmed plans for a Mexican bid. On March 4, 2016, Mexican Football Federation President Decio De Maria announced continued Mexican interest after the new FIFA president Gianni Infantino was elected in the wake of the Garcia Report corruption scandal. In April 2017 The Mexican Football Federation along with Canada Soccer Association and the United States Soccer Federation announced its joint bid to host the World Cup awarded on June 13, 2018 with 134 votes beating out Morocco's bid by the Royal Moroccan Football Federation with 65 votes. Mexico will host 10 matches along with Canada in 3 cities while United States will host 60 matches in 10 cities including the final; the shortlist of cities will be chosen by June 2020.
