Name our two official sports.
je ne pense pas...peut-etre
ice skating and ice hockey? Oui or non?
Lacrosse, I though we only had one
Lacrosse is our official summer sport. Hockey became our official winter sport in... don't quote me on this, but I believe 1993.
Which 4 NHL teams are owned by Canadians?
Let's see... Here are some teams I thought they were all Canadian owned but correct me if I'm wrong..
Toronto Maple Leafs
Next question: Where was the first professional hockey team organized in 1903?
(Most of the players were Canadian)
A. Green Bay, Wisconsin
B. Detriot, Michigan
C. Houghton, Michigan
D. Buffalo, New York
E. Toronto, Ontario
F. Montreal, Quebec
G. Saginaw, Michigan
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.
Which team won the first the Stanley Cup game ? (Team name )
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?
What Province produces more than half Canada's wheat?
Who is the Premier of BC, what party does he represent, and is he left wing or right wing?
(If you say Bill Vander Zalm, I'm going to shoot myself)
That's a hard one..Is it Zalm? No I am kidding I am not sure but let me guess right wing whomever it is...and good job on the previous question it was Sask.!
Vander Zalm was premier... about 20 years ago.
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?
Hey, eh. I'm new here, eh. I know all aboot Canada, eh. I'm a logger, eh. I know all aboot logging, eh. What type of tree is harvested the most in BC, eh?
I love V. Zalm then....
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.
Vraiment bien! (Really good)
Which one of these minerals is NOT mined out of Canada?
Come on...someone knows this...take a guess!
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).
Truly=Really, le meme chose, je dit tres bien et je dis vraiment bien! Either way it means Great job!!!!
Oui, le reponse est Maganese!
Ok next: What was the last Province to be added in Canada?
I have a feeling it is Newfoundland.
That is correct! In 1949 to be exact!
ok next... Each Province has its own floral emblem can you tell me what the floral emblem is, for
Here's a choice to pick from:
White Garden lily
Ok even if you don't know, go ahead and take a guess, I am sure you guys are all into flowers...
Alberta is Wild Rose. BC is Dogwood. I thought Quebec was the Fleur de Lis.
Thats france, no?
The Fleur de Lis is also a significant symbol in Quebec. The flag contains 4 of them, remember.
