    12. Canada has the largest French population that never surrendered to Germany.



    17. The Hudsons Bay Company once owned over 10% of the earth's surface and is still around as the world's oldest company.


    Thanks, Smoke, I love that list, especially #12. Problem with #17 is that HBC is now US-owned. Maybe we could add "loonies", "timbits" and "double-double" in there somewhere.

    And I just checked, the Hoshi Ryokan hotel in Japan has been in continuous operation by 46 generations of the same family since 718 AD. Also lots of European breweries in the 500 - 1000 year old range (including Stella Artois !!!!). HBC was/is the oldest company in North America, not the world.

    also just a thought when they say "new & improved" are they admitting that it wasn't so good before?
    When they say new and improved, the ARE admitting that the previous batch was "Old and Crappy".

    Good morning fellow Canucks!
    Thanks to all for the words, trivia and reps!
    Have an excellent day!

    Who's the person that tests the cat food and labels it better tasting than before?

    I also remember when pizzaria pizzas were bigger - smalls were 12", med 14", large 16", and xl were 18".

    Anyone notice the big bars of cheese have gotten smaller too? They used to be 600g now they are 500g and they still charge the same price for them.

    HBC is no longer Canadian owned:

    From 1670 to 1970. the HBC Governors were British and based in London, England. After 1970, HBC was a Canadian headquartered company with a Canadian as Governor. Since 2006, the HBC has been led by an American and is now American owned.

    In 2008, the company was sold to NRDC Equity Partners, the private equity firm of Purchase, New York-based National Realty & Development Corporation. In the United States, NRDC Equity Partners previously acquired Lord & Taylor, the oldest department store chain in the U.S., as well as the upscale jewelry and home furnishings retailer Fortunoff, which closed in spring 2009. The Canadian and U.S. holdings are parts of a newly-formed limited partnership, Hudson's Bay Trading Company, as of the fall of 2008.

    The brats & I were in a sleepy mood today. Of course, every time I tried to take a nap, they decided they needed something from me (bake some cookies, throw a ball, someone stole my toy).

    Hope everyone enjoyed their day & managed to stay dry.

    Night all.

    I definitely don't deserve the "honourable mention" for the 4:15, I forgot to put the word in

    So, What Do We Canadians Have To Be Proud Of ?

    Volley ball is Canadian?
    The U.S. has smarties but we call them Rockets.
