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:
- Peanut Butter
- McIntosh Apple
- Blackberry Cellphone
- IMAX Movie Theatre System
- Canadarm (Space Station)
- Electric Wheelchair
- Five-pin Bowling
- Electron Microscope
- Garbage Bag
- Caesar Cocktail
- 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!
