The true north, facing north
The Empire State Building is lighting up to honour the Olympic countries and Canada's turn will come this Saturday, Aug. 4.
The north side of the New York City landmark will shine red and white all night. Canada is sharing the tower with Bulgaria (west), Greece (south side) and Serbia (east).
The north side of the Empire State Building will be red and white again on Sunday, Aug. 5, but that will be in honour of Switzerland. We're not telling.
