Canada's oddest big roadside attractions

From the big nickel in Sudbury, Ont., to a giant Vincent van Gogh painting in Altona, Man., to the giant lobster in Shediac, N.B., Canada's highways are lined with some incredibly large, incredibly odd attractions.

A cyclist climbs a street towards the Brussels' Palace of Justice (back C) and the Marolles elevator (L), an urban elevator connecting the lower and higher levels of the district, August 3, 2015. Once the last refuge of lepers and criminals, one of Brussels' quirkiest neighbourhoods teems with vintage furniture sellers, flea markets and linguistic invention. Les Marolles in French, or de Marollen in Dutch, stretches from the Gare du Midi, where Eurostar trains arrive, to the city's highest point, the Mont des Pendus or Galgenberg (Gallows Hill), where you can look down on half of Brussels.
