It's the First of July -- Happy Canada Day!
A couple years ago, after I completed my goal of visiting all 50 states, I briefly thought that next I should try to set foot in all the Canadian provinces. There are only 13 of them, but have you ever looked at a map of the Canadian provinces?
OK, I've done Ontario and Quebec, and I can set my sights on British Columbia (Vancouver) and Manitoba (Winnipeg), but look at those northern provinces! Northwest Territories would certainly be a challenge, but, even more so, how the heck would a person ever do Nunavut?
Did you even know there was a province of Nunavut? Well, here's your educational moment for the day: Nunavut until 1999 was part of the Northwest Territories and was split off then into a separate province. It's roughly the size of Western Europe in area but only has 32,000 people! So, if you could find a way to get to Nunavut, what the heck do you do once you're there? Could I even find a bottle of Scotch?
Well, anyway, have a great Canada Day, even you Nunavutians!
