(For the record, Krispy Kreme is also great. Dunkin' Donuts is the least exciting of the three but mostly because I'm see/go to it all the time. I'm just a sucker for donuts.)
As a teenager I remember we used to hang out in the local 24hr Tim Hortons waiting for the fresh doughnuts to come out of the oven in the wee hours of the morning, after partying all night. Delicious, but that's gone now. It's silly that most people in Canada still associate Tim Hortons with Canadian culture/cuisine.
The coffee is decent if you're road tripping, and it's eminently cheaper/better than Starjunk. But I always opt for independent coffee and/or doughnut spots whenever possible.
I, uh, have some news for you from the future...
I hope this comment doesn't come across as mean.
The statistic we (or at least: I) always hear is that a majority of people living in Vancouver are of non-European ancestry. Which of course isn't quite the same as "born in China or Hong Kong."
Leaving aside the issue of place of ancestry vs. place of birth, while the connotation one may always think of re: Vancouver is that most folks are Chinese, that's still not true. 12%, for example are either south Asian or Filipino. Not to mention Southeast Asians, or other non-Chinese east Asians, e.g.: Korean or Japanese.
All in all, only 27% of Vancouverites are of Chinese origin. (And again, most of those are probably still born in Canada, being what the question was asking.)
I'm an American, who curls and knows a lot of Canadiens and has been to Canada a bunch.
Come on :D
Not bad eh
Great quiz :D
