Canada ranks as the second largest country in the world. Canada has the longest coastline in the world at 243,792 km. And Canadian Joe Shuster co-created Superman for DC Comics. These were three facts about Canada that I didn't know.
July 1st marks Canada's 147th birthday. For this occasion, Historica Canada put out a quiz of 15 questions that every Canadian should be able to answer. The survey covered everything from politics to geography with some social aspects thrown in. I got 10 correct.
About 92% of the people surveyed said Canadians are polite (Isn't that a standard joke about us?); 86% agreed there is definitely a "Canadian identity" (Of course, eh?); and 89% are proud of their heritage (Agree to that!). However, 44% of the respondents could not name 2017 as Canada's 150th anniversary and 11% could not identify the correct opening lines of the national anthem, "O Canada" (I DID get that right!) To see the results, check here.
Have a wonderful July 1st.
Good Night for now.
