Americans celebrate the Pilgrims, while in Canada, it's more to celebrate the end of the growing season and the harvest. It's earlier than yours because our growing season is a fair bit shorter.

Is there a reason L'Anse aux Meadows is not accepted? It was the first viking settlement, just more specific. I frequently read the list of world heritage sites and so I immediately thought of this, so I was stumped when it wasn't accepted.

Strictly speaking, poutine is not a Canadian "delicacy". A delicacy is a food that is rare or expensive. Poutine is a Canadian food, but it's cheap and crude, so not a delicacy.

Someone should do a poll of the number of times someone says "which one? field, floor, ball, street, road, pond, bubble, table top, pickup or air". Because you know all the americans answering this quiz were thinking just that. Then they finally say to themselves "oh, wait, ICE hockey!"
+4
Level 67
Aug 9, 2020
Yeah...no. Is this some Canadian thing where you think Americans are fussy about the different types of hockey? If an American hears "he plays hockey," he's going to assume it's ice hockey. That's the default brand of hockey. Roller hockey, field hockey, floor hockey, etc. will always be specified by the person saying it. All of the examples you listed except field hockey are casual games mostly played by children. When we think "hockey," it's ice hockey.

I love Canada - went on a fishing trip on Lake Nipigon when I was sixteen and I'll never forget it. Years later my daughter worked at McDonald's during high school and a woman came to the counter and asked for a burger with Oot cheese. My daughter said they only had American and cheddar cheeses available. The woman repeated, "I want my burger with Oot cheese." Again my daughter explained they only had two types of cheeses available and neither of them was Oot cheese. The woman, getting very frustrated, spelled it out as she said, "I want my burger with Oot cheese! W-i-t-h-o-u-t!" My daughter quickly got her a burger without cheese and when she left my daughter looked at the woman's license plate and she was from Canada. I was reminded of that when I saw the movie Canadian Bacon and Roy Boy told a Mountie, "We have ways of making you pronounce the letter O, pal." Even though ya'll talk funny up there, I still love y'uns. ;)

Ah, my eternal combat on Jetpunk. Being from Montréal, I always cringe a bit when I see Québec and Montréal without the accent in quizzes. I know, the quiz is in English, but we're fighting so hard to keep our language alive up here that it makes me cry a little every time. (Also, poutine is from Québec and I hate when Canada gets all the credit for it.) I feel better now. Thanks!

India is the greatest source of foreign born residents. China is actually in third place, slightly behind the Philippines. That's according to the 2021 census, I suspect recent immigration has only increased India's lead.
