I flunked; 8 out of 16 correct.  Partly because I thought your national animal was a Loonie!

Guess I'm what you would call a 50-percenter.  Not bad for a southerner, eh?

Eh! I got 13 out of 16, I passed.
I must be Canadian or bored because I can't ride so I answer silly tests?  :lol:

BTW what is a Canadian Citizenship Rest?  :headscratch:
Ride safe!

Failed with 11 out of 16. For most of those 11, it was a lucky guess.

I remember being pretty embarrassed once when a Toronto shopkeeper, realizing I was 'Murican, said he'd give me a 20% discount if I could name the Prime Minister. Failed that one too.

Most of the questions were trick questions. Lots of Canadian have done the test and failed either because they don't know or can't read.

The real Canadian Citizenship test is much easier.

1- Name the ingredients found in a Poutine. There's officially three. Anything else is not Canadian.
2- Name a Canadian hockey team. You can even name one that doesn't win regularly.
3- Name the Canadian's favourite adult beverage. It may involve hops.
4- Name the Canadian's favourite coffee shops. (Hint, used to be a hockey player)
5- Name of the Canadian dollar. (Trick question)

There you go. If you got 4 out of five, you're now Canadian.  :bigok:

I would have given him the finger and walked out of his shop. What an ass.

12 out of 16. Damn. I thought NB had a higher percentage of bilingual people. And I thought the Vikings got here 1st by way of Greenland.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

I got the Quebec one wrong.  I was thinking New Brunswick as it is the only officially bilingual province.  But that's not really the same thing.

15/16.  Not bad for someone who gets accused of "not being a real Canadian" semi-regularly.

I have serious questions about the fundamental validity of the social contract as a concept, I am not at all convinced that social democracy is preferable to libertarianism, and I work in the arms industry.

A lot of Canadians get really freaked out by the idea of someone who views the state not only as not benevolent but not even benign...regardless of the party in power.  That tends to disturb people more than the armament, actually.  I get regular hate mail because there is a fairly public inbox that directs to me.  And a lot of the ideas I've expressed publicly, which I consider fairly run of the mill philosophical musings about the nature of multipolar power structures and the legitimacy of the monopoly on use of violence the state arrogates to itself are treated as REALLY crazy here.

I mean the 90% of the country is demographically equivalent to an upper middle class suburb of Seattle...I don't really blame people for being all "who's this crazy guy talking about the nature of violence and the inherent expression of violence in all state actions?" because the overwhelming majority of people here have never had state force directed at them, or anyone they've ever met.

Well...unless they're native, in which case, yeah, chances are they know someone who experienced a powerful and well-meaning state firsthand.  Google, if you so choose, some of the letters sent to native families advising them of the wonderful privilege being offered to them of seeing their children for Christmas, provided they met a series of conditions...



I apologize for introducing political philosophy to this thread.  I mention it only because it's the reason I periodically get accused, most recently by a bunch of family members over Christmas, of not being a real Canadian.  Which is humourous to me, given a) my spelling of "humourous" and b) the fact that a bunch of my accusers were present for my birth.  One, in particular, was rather instrumental in the process.
