Description

Canada has given the world the real Winnie the Pooh, the phrase 'Beatlemania', and the man who invented the Academy Awards. If it weren't for Canada, we might not have the pie-in-the-face gag, basketball, time zones, or the dotted white line on the middle of highways. And anyone who still thinks Canada is dull obviously doesn't know about the Canadian who was the longest serving prisoner on Alcatraz, or the night that members of Parliament threw books and toy balloons at each other during a wild debate in the House of Commons. The Great Canadian Trivia Book explores the noteworthy and the notorious, the factual and the phenomenal, the obscure and outlandish sides of the Great White North.
