Canada - The friendly giant to the West

(An adaptation of the winner in a competition to find the headline most likely to make Americans turn the page)

Anyway, to mark Canada Day, those good people at the Globe & Mail have a quiz to discover how well readers know Canadian and US history. Humble narrator scored 9/10 for Canada and 10/10 for the Estados. Read 'em and weep.

Anyway, happy Canada Day to any Canucks reading, and let it not be forgotten that they are the only nation ever to invade the US and burn its capital to the ground.

What is wrong with this site? All I have to do is click on anything and full pages of dense internet directions come up. I tried several times.
