O Canada!

Some of you reading this blog will already know that I’m Canadian; for those who do not, I guess this is your moment of revelation. :)

Since it’s Canada Day, here’s a list of Canadian SF/F authors. You may or may not have previously known that they’re Canadian!

And here’s a list of Canadian inventions. Same thing. I’ll bet there are many things here you didn’t know you should thank Canada for! (To name just a few: basketball, zippers, acetylene, IMax, odometers, Robertson screws, Trivial Pursuit, and of course, the tuck-away-handle beer carton.)

Finally, some Canadian slang and terminology. Not all is in widespread use across the entire country (it’s a BIG country), but all of us use some of it!

Happy Canada Day!
