Here at the Bathroom Readers'' Institute, we love all things Canadian, which got us thinking: Why not do an entire book on the greatest country in the world? So we sent our crack research staff to find the answers to some of the quirkiest Canuck questions:
* Did a Canadian newspaper mistakenly identify a prominent politician and his wife as serial killers? (Yes.)
* Does the Hudson''s Bay Company still pay Queen Elizabeth with beaver pelts? (No.)
* Was Harriet Beecher Stowe''s inspiration for Uncle Tom''s Cabin a Canadian? (Yes.)
* Does the water on the Saint John River actually flow backward? (Sometimes.)
We''ve also uncovered the story behind Greenpeace, the history of Harlequin romance novels, the government''s secret official UFO division, and much more.
From Nunavut to Nova Scotia, British Columbia to Northwest Territories, Uncle John''s Bathroom Reader Plunges Into Canada, Eh? is packed with cool Canadian tales. So put away the hockey gear, grab a plate of Kraft dinner, and join us for a wild ride!
