Dear Friends and Partners,

Happy 145th Canada! What do you get a country that has everything? Ok, well maybe not everything. I could think of a few things we need, but mainly the intangibles.

I thought it would be fun to test your knowledge with a challenging and unique quiz. Try out your Canadiana knowledge at the O Canada Quiz or the ever popular Alberta Fun Facts Quiz.

Whether you spend it under a majestic Maple tree eating poutine, Montreal style bagels and smoked meat followed by a Nanaimo bar or at the BBQ grilling Alberta beef and sipping a Canadian Club on the rocks (probably illegal) or a Canada Dry be sure to take a break and think of how really awesome our beautiful country is!
