To celebrate Canada Day, here’s a very special Canadian edition of the Maclean’s Quiz, our weekly diversion designed by Terrance Balazo to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.
We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take this Canada Day quiz. He’s an all-Canadian man: A lineman with the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012. And we don’t call him our genius for nothing—he solved the viral Singapore brain teaser that had been stumping the Internet. (And during his workout, no less!)
This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything Canada, from comediennes to pioneers, from high altitudes to even higher satellites. How did he do? Fittingly, given Canada’s wonderful centenary that year and its Expo in Montreal, he scored 67 per cent.
