Who said Canadians are conservative and polite, but not that interesting? Is Canada really just a place of ice and snow? This site blows the stereotype wide apart! Canadians are anything BUT boring!

Who else but a Canadian could have developed the strain of seeds that consistently win the title "world's biggest pumpkins"? Guess who thought up the idea of painting a line down the centre of the road to separate the lanes of traffic. Yes, it was a Canadian, and in 1930 the first line was painted on an Ontario highway. In fact, we are a nation of firsts.

Canadians invented the world's FIRST: light bulb, garbage bag, gas mask and chocolate bar, to name just a few.

This site highlights lots of cool people, places, inventions, events and achievements that make Canada cool!
