Canada Day

Formerly known as Dominion Day, July 1 is Canada Day. Think you know anything about Canada? You can take a quiz here. Don't feel bad if you don't get the answer to this question correct--only 8% of Canadians taking the quiz were correct.

Who is Canada's head of state?* No it's not him. And it's not her.

Perhaps because I had to study for my citizenship exam 20 years ago, I found myself in the top category for correct answers and as a result I "have qualified for the John A. Macdonald Chair for Advanced Historical Drinking at the Dominion Institute. Please show up at our offices Monday morning for a plate of leftover Haggis and some 138-year-old single malts!"

Happy Canada Day to Canadians everywhere.

* The correct answer is here.
