Formal fallacy aside, he's right. I have probably heard the term "hockey" without the preface of "ice" thousands of times and have only heard the term "ice hockey" used in international broadcasts.

that's not really a term for a Canadian person. It's a Canadian insult. for example. "Those montreal fans are nothing but a bunch of hosers"

I learned about the Loonie when on a trip to Nova Scotia. We went to play pool, which took a "loonie" to play. My dad didn't understand, and neither did I of course! My dad said "Yes, it does," thinking it to be a crazy person and not a Canadian dollar :P So now I know Loonies and Toonies.

The capital of Quebec is Quebec City - not Montreal.

Level 81
May 17, 2020
After being stumped for a second why Québec hadn't filled in as the capital after already typing it for the province I was temporarily stymied why L'Anse aux Meadows didn't work for the Vikings. I'll admit I was making that one too specific, but I'm really surprised that wrong Montréal answer survived into the quiz.

Facepalm. Fixed.

Level 73
May 17, 2020
Is there a reason L'Anse aux Meadows is not accepted? It was the first viking settlement, just more specific. I frequently read the list of world heritage sites and so I immediately thought of this, so I was stumped when it wasn't accepted.

Mmm...poutine...
+3
Level 54
Jun 2, 2020
Strictly speaking, poutine is not a Canadian "delicacy". A delicacy is a food that is rare or expensive. Poutine is a Canadian food, but it's cheap and crude, so not a delicacy.

I think the word was being used ironically. I certainly took it that way, because...yeah. That pile of mess is not a delicacy. (Very tasty though.)

Please consider accepting L'anse aux Meadows for a 1000 year old Viking settlement.

Level 65
Jul 17, 2020
This is outdated. You should accept "Bieber" for "beaver". And I thought "poutine" was the Russian president.

Most populous city of the above = most populous city in the answer to the above row.

Someone should do a poll of the number of times someone says "which one? field, floor, ball, street, road, pond, bubble, table top, pickup or air". Because you know all the americans answering this quiz were thinking just that. Then they finally say to themselves "oh, wait, ICE hockey!"
+1
Level 65
Aug 9, 2020
Yeah...no. Is this some Canadian thing where you think Americans are fussy about the different types of hockey? If an American hears "he plays hockey," he's going to assume it's ice hockey. That's the default brand of hockey. Roller hockey, field hockey, floor hockey, etc. will always be specified by the person saying it. All of the examples you listed except field hockey are casual games mostly played by children. When we think "hockey," it's ice hockey.

I love Canada - went on a fishing trip on Lake Nipigon when I was sixteen and I'll never forget it. Years later my daughter worked at McDonald's during high school and a woman came to the counter and asked for a burger with Oot cheese. My daughter said they only had American and cheddar cheeses available. The woman repeated, "I want my burger with Oot cheese." Again my daughter explained they only had two types of cheeses available and neither of them was Oot cheese. The woman, getting very frustrated, spelled it out as she said, "I want my burger with Oot cheese! W-i-t-h-o-u-t!" My daughter quickly got her a burger without cheese and when she left my daughter looked at the woman's license plate and she was from Canada. I was reminded of that when I saw the movie Canadian Bacon and Roy Boy told a Mountie, "We have ways of making you pronounce the letter O, pal." Even though ya'll talk funny up there, I still love y'uns. ;)

Ah, my eternal combat on Jetpunk. Being from Montréal, I always cringe a bit when I see Québec and Montréal without the accent in quizzes. I know, the quiz is in English, but we're fighting so hard to keep our language alive up here that it makes me cry a little every time. (Also, poutine is from Québec and I hate when Canada gets all the credit for it.) I feel better now. Thanks!
