  • People in Churchill, Manitoba leave their car doors unlocked in case their neighbors need to make a quick escape from polar bears.
  • There’s also a prison for polar bears who break into people’s homes for food.
  • No cows in Canada are given artificial hormones for milk production.
  • For one day in 1943, Ottawa designated a hospital room to be “extraterritorial” (international) ground so a Dutch princess could be born a full Dutch citizen.
  • And every year the Netherlands sends Canada thousands of tulips to show their gratitude [for the part Canada played in liberating the Netherlands from Nazi Germany occupation in WWII].  This inspired Ottawa’s annual Tulip Festival.
  • Canada has banned the Westboro Baptist Church members from entering the country and picketing funerals.
