Canada rocks: a brief essay on what we should know about our northern neighbor

Canada’s ginormous land mass makes a small impression upon the people of the US. Who’s aware that Nelly Furtado and Jim Carrey developed their talent in Canada before becoming US stars?

Have you heard about Canada’s government-supported health care system? In history, were you aware that the American sport of basketball was created by a Canadian?

Land area: which is larger, the Us or Canada?
Check the figures in your RMQRWA.
Map distortion makes it difficult to guess which is larger. What we found in class is that Canada is slightly larger than the US in land area.
