This Week's Canadian Fun Fact

Queen's Guard, Buckingham Palace Did you know that the busby hats worn by the guards at the British Royal Palace are made out of the pelts of Canadian bears? There has been an outcry by animal rights activists, including American singer Pink, demanding that the hats be made out of faux-fur instead of the real deal. According to an article in The Independent, the hats for some of the guards have already been replaced, but the Ministry of Defence is having a hard time finding a replacement material that will last as well as the Canadian bears' pelts.


What's Up Canuck? Your Weekly Canadian Trivia Question

Last Week's Question & Answer:

What is the top grossing Canadian film of all time, at the Canadian box office?

According to CTV.ca, until recently Canada's top grossing film was the cheesy teen comedy Porky's. Happily, Porky's reign of terror was ended in 2006 by the Canadian cop comedy, Bon Cop, Bad Cop, which surpassed Porky's by only $100,000.

This Week's Question

Why was lacrosse Canada's original official sport?

Look for your answer next week.


Do you have feedback or questions for me? I'd love to hear from you. You can either start a topic in the forum or simply respond to this email.

I look forward to exploring Canadian Culture with you.
