Canada Quiz: Test Your Knowledge

I thought I’d have some fun for those readers who may want to test their knowledge of Canada, my home country and neighbor of the United States.

I will leave this up for several days. Here are the rules/guidelines for participants.
– leave your answers as a comment in order, i.e. 1 to 15.
– tell me the country you are from.
– use the honor system and try not to look up the answers.
– I will try to provide nice token to the first three readers with the correct answers.
– most of all the rule is to have fun.
