I really think you should accept "Parliament" instead of insisting on "Centre Block".

It's "mountie", not "mounty". Also, you most folk here call a snowmobile by the brandname "Skidoo", seeing as how Bombardier invented the thing. You're welcome.

I'm not really getting the Lake Superior thing. I know that it borders Ontario, but it also borders Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Is it more Canadian than the rest of the Great Lakes for some reason? When I think about water in relation to Canada, I automatically go to Hudson Bay: it is (almost)

completely Canadian, played a major role in the development of the country and is also now the name of a global department store chain.

Beavers are in the USA, too. Doesn't mean that they can't be associated with Canada.

Exactly; Bald Eagles are associated with the US, but I believe (and no, I haven't looked at the numbers, mostly because I can't seem to find any) that Canada has as many if not more of the bird.

But is about what it is associated with, not if some country has something (to do with it ) aswell. You can get croissants everywhere, but it is associated with france.

I'm curious, where does one go to buy fresh cheese curds? Are they a staple in Canadian stores? I've only seen the frozen breaded type in my part of the US - where, BTW, we sometimes eat white/milk gravy on our fries instead of ketchup, but brown gravy sounds interesting, too.

You can find it in almost any grocery store. Specialized cheese stores are the best because they usually have the better brands. I live in Edmonton and we can get the good Quebec curds here too. Even Costco sells it nationwide and there never frozen so quality is still really good. :)

When you buy milk it comes in a freaking bag. That probably makes it easier to make your own curdles.

Supermarkets, convenience stores, literally anywhere sells cheese curds in Canada. The cheese industry in Canada is actually not that bad

Referring to the question mark after the word 'food' under the picture of poutine...What's with poutine being viewed as a weird food? Really don't get it. Had a Canada picture book as a kid and the caption under the picture of poutine read, 'Poutine may not look appetizing, but it's a tasty treat'. Wtf, people? It's FRIES and GRAVY and CHEESE. Yet a friggin bacon sundae is cool? Someone explain it to me

Hell yes to Rush, hell no to tragically Hip. Always hated those guys. My own Dad was a musician back when they were just getting big (in the same city too- he even had the posters to prove it that they opened for HIS band a few times!), and in subsequent years he'd tell anyone who'd listen that they were all pompous rich kids who insulted the ones from his side of town and never did anything for charity, compared to all the other local groups doing regular benefit gigs and working their butts off at a lousy summer job to buy your gear as a youth... he even got into a fight with one of them in 1984!

It is spelled "Québec", not "Québéc". Also, the building is the parliament itself, not the Parliament Hill, wich is the hill on wich is the building.

Mike Meyers is not that famous of a Canadian within Canada. I do not think he should be representing Canada in this quiz. A person like Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, or William Shatner are all more famous both within Canada and around the world. Also someone like Terry Fox is a huge Canadian icon that hardly anyone outside of Canada knows about. He would be good to include too in my opinion.

It's interesting to see people confessing to not knowing about James Cameron (and believe me, it IS a confession!).

I admit, I didn't know he was Canadian. But given the sheer breadth of his success as a filmmaker, he is certainly a significant figure in the world of cinema. (He has made a fair number of films that aren't to my personal taste but that's an entirely different issue.)

Could you accept "Canadian National Tower", although it is not its official name and isn't used that often, it is what the CN is named after.
