Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day for all you wonderful Canadians out there, eh!?

Today marks the Canada’s 146th Birthday; I know, Canada is just a baby compared to a majority of the countries out in our world, but believe it or not, this so-called “baby” country has accomplished and invented quite a lot in a short period of time.

Here’s a list of just a few things that Canada has invented that we see or hear about in our day-to-day life:

  • Telephone
  • Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Peanut Butter
  • McIntosh Apple
  • Blackberry Cellphone
  • Pager
  • Walkie-Talkie
  • IMAX Movie Theatre System
  • Canadarm (Space Station)
  • Snowmobile
  • Electric Wheelchair
  • Snowblower
  • CADPAT
  • Lacrosse
  • Five-pin Bowling
  • Insulin
  • Electron Microscope
  • Plexiglass
  • Garbage Bag
  • Caesar Cocktail
  • Wonderbra
  • Cardiac Pacemaker
  • Egg Carton

Of course, Canada has created many, many more inventions, but I just wanted to name some of the most popular ones.

I remember celebrating Canada Day in Ottawa (capital of Canada) a few years back; the downtown area of the city is just pure insanity! Streets are just flooded with people that not a single car could even think of passing through, it just wouldn’t happen.
I remember lots of live bands and marvelous fireworks shows. I also remember how finding a washroom is an impossible task. So folks, stay hydrated and have an awesome Canada day! Just a few more years before we hit the big 150!
