Here is a little list of fun Canuck facts for the start to the weekend!  Let’s take a look now, shall we?

  • People in Churchill, Manitoba leave their car doors unlocked in case their neighbors need to make a quick escape from polar bears.
  • There’s also a prison for polar bears who break into people’s homes for food.
  • No cows in Canada are given artificial hormones for milk production.
  • For one day in 1943, Ottawa designated a hospital room to be “extraterritorial” (international) ground so a Dutch princess could be born a full Dutch citizen.
  • And every year the Netherlands sends Canada thousands of tulips to show their gratitude [for the part Canada played in liberating the Netherlands from Nazi Germany occupation in WWII].  This inspired Ottawa’s annual Tulip Festival.
  • Canada has banned the Westboro Baptist Church members from entering the country and picketing funerals.

  1. I loved this post! Amazing that humans leave their cars abs houses unlocked in case someone needs help… In the US that doesn’t happen… Love the part about the polar bear jail too! *(purrs)*
