You missed some important ones.

Beer
Poutine
Peacekeeping
Hockey
Medical R&D
Beer

Its an interesting list. Interesting to ME because it shows what Non Canadians think we are good at. Oh, and I agree with most of them except for road food. Its OK, but not exceptional.

Drinking AND brewing, Vit (we have to brew so we can drink more!)

Also:
Terry Fox
probably the most joked about country in American TV and Movies
Alex Trebek
The Canadarm used in the space program

I think that's got it, eh?

I agree with you on both points, Alix.

Canadians have universal healthcare. Now that is saying something.

Which #8? I don't see any pix for #8. Phooey. And there is a hockey picture, but the list ignores our hockey prowess. ;)

It is not as "universal" as you would think. We do pay a monthly premium and it only covers basic healthcare. When you are working full time for a larger company you can get benefits for dental, extended health and prescriptions but many businesses are getting around giving benefits.

Of course this is in my province. Each one is different. :wink:

I think my AdBlocker has removed that picture. Can you screenshot it for me LP?
