    All your interpretations look fine except for two of them.

    Verse 2, #2 -- I see no mention of trees, only the prairies.

    Verse 3, #2 -- Canadians <~~needs to be plural, not singular.

    Nicely done, overall! =)

    Great prairie spread -- the phrase brings up an image of lots of wide open land -- plenty of room for everyone!
