Canada Day

Canadian flag

Today, July 1st is Canada Day. So in honour of this auspicious day I thought I would give you some facts about Canada.

  • Canada is the second largest country in the world. It is in fact so massive it has 6 time zones!
  • Today is the 144th Canada Day.
  • Vancouver is 125. That’s younger than the telephone, postage stamps, bicycles, plastic, lightbulbs and toilet paper.
  • On Canada Day it is a legal requirement to wear red and eat maple syrup with all meals.

Disclaimer: At least one of these might not be true, I wouldn’t want to suggest which one though.
