Interesting quiz! And a Canadian gets to make the first comment! I missed only the question about percentage of residents born in another country. Should have known it was that high.

I was surprised the percentage was so high. I've never been to Canada, though.

So if 22% speak French and 22% were born in another country, does it follow that the French speakers weren't born in Canada? (I find it funny that it's the same percentage!)

Honestly, that's the reason I did not guess 22% for the question about those being born elsewhere. I couldn't believe they would be the same, so I stupidly picked something else.

Mere coincidence. Most French speakers in Canada reside in the province of Quebec. The population of Quebec is over 8 million and 95% speak French as their first language. If you do the math, then according to your logic, none of them were born in Canada, which means in all the other provinces and territories, absolutely no one was born outside of Canada. I live in Ontario, where the population is over 14 million. Your flawed logic says all 14 million were born in Canada. Ask yourself, does that make sense?

1- It's a joke 2- How are we supposed to know all that information about the populations of Ontario and Quebec so that we could calculate, in the middle of a quiz I might add, if the entire percentage of Canadian speakers of French and Foreigners is the same percentage as that in Quebec

StealthyNinja467 You don't need to know the population figures. That's filler on my part. You just need a modicum of knowledge about Canada, basic common sense and very, very rudimentary math skills (and you don't even really need the math ability)...that's how.

I knew the dissidents question had to be either Saudi Arabia or China, and the band had to be either Death Cab or Tragically Hip. I guessed wrong in both cases.

The what that is depicted on the front of a Canadian $1 coin is the queen of England, like all the rest of their money.

Although not a very good excuse for getting the question wrong, the obverse of the Canadian dollar coin is indeed Queen Elizabeth. The loon is on the reverse: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loonie.

To eric29cocoanuts. Great link about the definitions of obverse and reverse when it comes to coins, and confirming the Queen is in fact on the "front" of Canadian coins. I've learned something new today....but who refers to those descriptions on a daily basis to describe a coin other than a numismatic? Let me try and picture that with a coin toss scenario: "Hey, let's flip a coin to see who goes first, do you want obverse or reverse?"...nah, doesn't sound right. More importantly, it I don't think it was what the quiz creator had in mind when they asked that question.

Thanks hybrid. I know what the Quizmaster meant, and the answer to the question is obvious. But that doesn't change the fact that the queen is on the "front" of the coin and the loon is on the "back". That was the whole point of my comment...the question should be asking what is depicted on the BACK of the Canadian $1 coin. I'm not being pedantic, the question is just plain wrong. In fact, any reference to front or back could easily be eliminated; just ask what is depicted on the coin. Since the queen is not one of the given choices, loon would have to be the correct answer.
