Since I saw a thread about the American citizenship test and Canada Day was three days ago I thought I would try and see what you Americans know about Canada.
Go here and choose a province then pick 20 questions.
I really want to see what Americans can get since there is a lot of Canadian history in it.

I also want to see you answers to this question:
136. Who is the leader of the Federal Official Opposition Party and what party?
a. Thomas Mulcair
b. Stéphane Dion
c. Bob Rae
d. Adrian Dix

104. In the 1960s, Quebec experienced an era of rapid change. What is this called?
a. The West Movement.
b. The Revolution.
c. The Quiet Revolution.
d. La Francophonie.

For fun:
60. What is Canada’s system of government called?
a. Dictatorship.
b. Parliamentary government.
c. Military Rule.
d. Communism.

Answers:
Thomas Mulcair (NDP) and The Quiet Revolution

Canadian citizenship can be automatically granted if you pay the government $100,000. No test necessary.

Apparently money matters more than knowing what a country is really about, or maybe it's that the artistocracy is immune to nationalism while the rest of us are expected to swallow the blue pill.

Thanks for ruining what was supposed to be a fun thread already.

What did you struggle with?
I didn't actually review my results but most of my questions involved terminology or were oriented around the parliament. A few names came up and I had no clue.

50%, I'm surprised it wasn't worst, I know nothing about Canada in reality.

the test? no if you at least review something to prepare i think. Sorry but i do not know off the top of my head which places are considered a part of the plains; which has the most industry; who produces the most timber; and what % of natives are classified as first nation.

Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba or what Americans consider the Mid-West constitute the Prairie provinces. Like the U.S. our industry is based the provinces on the St. Lawrence Ontario and Quebec which is why they are the largest. Which place do you think has the most trees? The last I will admit is rather hard.

Just took the grueling 143 question New Brunswick test and scored 54%.... To answer your other 3 questions, I'll say c (Bob Rae) and conservative party(?), c and b...

Have to admit that was fun.

Did I pass? :)

I would assume BC just because it is close to where the US has the most trees

No the opposition leader is Thomas Mulcair of the New Democrats(NDP) our centre-left party. The Conservative Party is the ruling party and Bob Rae was intermin leader of the Liberals. Also the answer to the second question is c: The Quiet Revolution. It's when Quebec god rid of a kinda-sorta dictatoral premier and shifted away form religion and turned into the very Liberal stronghold it is today.

I got the quiet revolution question right, albeit I guessed on that one..... But I will say I need to do more research on Canadian History - especially since I live next door (in Maine)! :)

Fascinating history, Canada!

Can we annex the top part of your state to make a straight line on the map? I also find Canadian history far more interesting than American history which is basically one side was for something while another side was against it mostly states.

I've taken the Canadian citizenship test that immigrants have to take (and passed)

None of the questions in the OP I've seen exist on the real test.

When did you do it? It has been completely revamped in the last two years.

60%

To be honest that's mostly just educated guesses and process of elimination. Does 60% qualify as a passing grade?
