The Top Ten

1 Canada is the World's Most Educated Country: over half its residents have college degrees.
2 After the attack on Pearl Harbor during WWII, Canada declared war on Japan before the U.S. did.
3 "Canada" is an Iroquoian language word meaning "Village."
4 Canada has the third largest oil reserves of any country in the world after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.
5 Canada has the largest coastline in the world.
6 The Mall of America is owned by Canadians.
7 Americans have invaded Canada twice, in 1775 and 1812. They lost both times.

Stupid Americans think they're so great. They are no match for Canada.

8 License plates in the Canadian Northwest Territories are shaped like polar bears.
9 With 1,896 km (1,178 mi), the Yonge Street in Canada, is the longest street in the world.

It is said to be the longest street in the world, but in truth it's a misconception. It was said to be 1,178 miles (1,896 km) long while it is only, in fact, only 34.8 miles (56 km) long. Sorry, but this is untrue. - BKAllmighty

I hate discrediting information but I didn't want anyone to be misdirected. Didn't mean to be a nitpicker. - BKAllmighty

10 Police Departments in Canada give out "positive tickets" when they see people doing something positive.

I have lived in Canada for my whole life, as well, and I have never heard of this being done. I'd love if this were true, though. Of course, it wouldn't help fight against how everyone thinks Canadians are too polite, would it? - BKAllmighty

I've lived in Canada all my life, but have yet to see a "positive ticket". - PetSounds

I agree with PetSounds: I too, have lived in Canada my entire life, but, I have yet to see a "positive ticket." This is the very first time I have heard about this.

The Contenders
