If you think you know a lot about Canada, try this test. I got 96% on it while Bob got only 85%. Put on a tuque, drink a few beers and when you start "feeling Canadian" go to it. We challenge you to beat our scores. This is the quiz link.
Here's a list of Canadian stuff that you probably don't have a clue about. Maybe, you might reach Canadian enlightenment or baffle your friends at parties, eh.
- Isaac Brock, a British general, protected us from invading Yankees in 1812. If he didn't do that, we would all be talking American and carrying hand guns.
- The greatest Prime Minister of Canada was Lester B. Pearson. He gave us the Canadian Flag and the Canada Pension Plan. Not bad for someone who never had a majority in Parliament. He also started those peace keeping programs in the U.N. which provided jobs for the unemployed.
- The fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs are the most dedicated in the world because they fill up the Air Canada Centre for every game. The Leafs haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1967.
- Canada sells more oil to the U.S. than anyone else. Why deal with hostile greedy Arabs when you can deal with friendly, greedy Canadians?
- Newfoundland was discovered by John Cabot in 1497, but waited until 1949 to become a province. That only shows that Newfies wanted to have a better deal out of Confederation than most of us, especially with Unemployment Insurance. It's easier to draw it there than Ontario or Alberta.
- Funny Canucks have produced such oddities like "Corner Gas" and "The Comedy Network" while other comics were making movies or making fun of people in your neighbourhood.
I hoped you've learned something about what it means to be a Canadian. For a greater understanding of this subject check out "The Canadian Beaver Video" on YouTube.
