    Montreal Canadiens
    Edmonton Oilers
    Toronto Maple Leafs
    Calgary Flames

    Once again, if you're gonna go to a website for answers, at least make sure the site was created sometime in the last 10 years. The Nordiques and the Jets havn't existed for a long, long time, the Canucks have been around for 30 years, and the Senators have been around at least 5.

    The Oilers, Flames, Leafs, and Senators (Ottawa) are Canadian owned. The Canucks (Vancouver) and Canadiens are Canadian based, but not Canadian owned.

    The first team was organized in non other than the birthplace of hockey. Montreal, of course.

    Actually I did NOT go to a website for answers. I knew of few of them already and found the others in a history section of hockey in a book! :) Thanks for the updated info Miseur!

    The answer to the multiple choice was C Houghton, Michigan. Hockey developed in Canada, according the the CAHA ,British Soldiers played their first games about 1855.....The first proffesional hockey team was organized at Houghton, Michigan in 1903. Most of the players were Canadian.....the National Hockey League was formed in Montreal in 1917.(World Book Encyclopedia 1998)

    But that's ok we both learned something! :)

    OK next: What Province produces more than half Canada's wheat?

    Vander Zalm was premier... about 20 years ago. :p

    Gordon Campbell, Liberal, extreme right. The people, after living under mildly Socialist control for 11 years, hate his policies, and he is the most hated man in the province.

    How long is a Canadian electoral term, officially? How long do terms usually last?

    I love [face_love] V. Zalm then....
    8-}

    Let's see the electoral office..Do you mean the Prime Minister? If you do then there is an election every 5 years but there is no fixed term or maxiumum that one can serve. Is that correct?

    Trees most valuable for timber are Hemlock, fir and spruce.

    Ok question: Which on of these is NOT an official Minister of the Cabinet in Canada?

    Minister of Finance
    Minister of fisheries and oceans
    Minister for International Fur trade
    Minister of Province Affiliation
    Minister of National Revenue

    There is no Minister for International Fur Trade or Minister of Province Affiliation. The post of Minister of Province Affiliation simply doesn't exist, but we do have a Minister of International Trade. The fur trade's been over for hundreds of years.

    In theory, the term length is 5 years. In practice, it's 4. Elections are almost always called at least 4 years apart.

    It's either Zinc or Manganese. I'm going to go with Manganese.

    Vraiment bien! (Really good)

    That actually means "truly good', but the proper French would be "Tres bien" (very good).

    Alberta is Wild Rose. BC is Dogwood. I thought Quebec was the Fleur de Lis.

    The Fleur de Lis is also a significant symbol in Quebec. The flag contains 4 of them, remember.
