The 2nd Annual Canada Day Blog Hop!


Interesting Canadian facts:
 
- At 3,855,103 square miles, Canada is the second largest country in the world, behind Russia.

- Newfoundland was the first part of Canada to be explored by Europeans. Ironically, it was the last area to become a province, in 1949.

- Canada became a country on July 1, 1867, when the British North America Act was passed by the British Parliament.

- Canada is known as the home of large animals like the moose and grizzly bear, but it is also home to about 55,000 species of insects and about 11,000 species of mites and spiders.
- Many famous authors have come from Canada, including Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables), Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale), and Alice Munro (Lives of Girls and Women).
