Keanu Reeves wasn't born in Canada. Toronto dominion bank appears when you type 'bank'. Moose should not be accepted as it's a Canadian quiz. Former Canadian pro sports teams would be a nice touch along with using some capital letters.

Good quiz overall (well, I would call it good, I did get 51) but I'm sure there are multiple Canadians in each of those movies. Like, for Star Trek, James Doohan (Scotty) was also Canadian. You could fix it by putting a role too (i.e. "Played William Shatner in Star Trek"). Also, not to be that "I can't believe you didn't include...!" guy, but: you picked Keanu over Dan Aykroyd? Michael J Fox? John Candy? Mike Myers? Norm Macdonald?

In "The Matrix", Carrie-Anne Moss played Trinity, and was born and raised and graduated from high school in Vancouver. She is indisputably Canadian, and should probably be accepted at the very least as an alternate answer to Keanu.

how about Vancouver Whitecaps? (you don't specify which pro soccer league)
Nov 9th, 2009 at 12:54 GMT
Thanks for the suggestions, folks. I fixed a few of the glitches and will work on honouring Aykroyd/Fox/Candy/Myers/Macdonald in some fashion over Reeves.

Who cares about Canada!?
Nov 21st, 2009 at 17:59 GMT
Barrick and Goldcorp both show up when you type "gold"

Didn't Bank of Nova Scotia become "Scotiabank"? OR are those two separate entities? I forgot all about the Hamilton Tiger Cats. I became fixated on the Ottawa Rough Riders, but I guess they went out of business?? I miss the CFL on CBC!

TD Bank showing up when you type "bank" seems a little generous, considering there's 3 different banks on the list. Otherwise, great quiz, can't remember the last time I saw a half-dollar.
Nov 30th, 2009 at 01:25 GMT
Since when does Canada have a half dollar???
Dec 13th, 2009 at 06:53 GMT
I'm being picky I know, but the name of the province is Newfoundland and Labrador,Tiger-Cats should be hyphenated and have a capital c and Quebec has an accent.(If like me you don't know how to type the accent click on my name and copy/paste it from my Canadian quiz). @shakirafan: yeah, they folded following the 1996 season, perhaps someone decided it was too strange having a 9 team league with two teams named Roughriders. In 2002 the Ottawa Renegades joined the league only to fold after 4 seasons. @JessicaL: since 1870, but I sure have never seen one outside of those souvenir coin sets.

Isn't Ottawa the capital of Ontario?
Dec 26th, 2009 at 16:59 GMT
Ottawa is the capital of Canada, Toronto is the capital of Ontario.

Well I have to laugh at nate2587, and as a Canadian I can't say I've ever seen a half dollar coin. Clearly this quiz was not made by a Canadian. Nice try though.
Mar 5th, 2010 at 03:23 GMT
ya, we definitely don't have half-dollar coins. maybe you're thinking about British currency on that one or something?
Mar 7th, 2010 at 00:48 GMT
I've lived in Hamilton my entire life, and I've never in my memory encountered a half-dollar.
Mar 10th, 2010 at 19:45 GMT
Just because you don't see $0.50 coins doesn't mean they don't exist. They do exist, not sure why you guys couldn't have just looked it up.
Mar 18th, 2010 at 13:55 GMT
I've seen the half dollar in my grandma's coin collection. Hasn't been used in like 50 years though.
May 21st, 2010 at 17:41 GMT
The half-dollar coin exists purely for collecting/souvenir purposes, I believe. The Royal Canadian Mint makes them but I don't think they're accepted as currency.
Aug 15th, 2010 at 22:37 GMT
The half dollar doesn't circulate much, but it definitely exists. (The main place I see them is in special commemorative sets of coins when I'm waiting in line at the post office.) This is a neat quiz, and it's always nice to see Canadian content on here. It may be a bit generous in accepting last names, though--I got credit for Goldcorp Inc when I was actually three-quarters of the way through (wrongly) guessing Inco. But thanks for including lots of common short nicknames and abbreviations (Ti-Cats, RIM, etc.)!
