Canadian Flag

How come the flag for Canada is stars and stripes in international calling? No Maple leaf?

It's part of the latest addition to NAFTA.

They were allowed to be the 51st state so US can claim the gold medal for hockey.

I love the Clear American strawberry fizzy water that Walmart sells. I was a little surprised that the carton said, "Made in Canada." Now it all makes sense, aye?

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

If you flight to Canada, you will be charged a fee to check in luggage likewise on flights to other US cities. All other international flights remain free checked luggages.

That would be "eh"! I think "aye" is Scottish. :P

Raccoons never were good at geography or linguistics. Is that where the expression, "An aye for an aye and a toot for a toot" came from? :cool:

It is "eh". The following is from the internet, so it must be "true"!

When Sir John A. McDonald and his cronies were trying to figure out a new name for our (soon-to-be) great country, someone had a (typically Canadian) idea:

"Let's put all the letters into a hat and draw three of them.
That will be the new name of this place ..."
So they did ...

The first letter is pulled, and our hero shouts - "C" eh!?
The second letter is pulled, and our hero shouts - "N" eh!?
The third letter is pulled, and our hero shouts - "D" eh!?

Haha, that's a good one. I think it's displaying with the US flag because Canada and the US share the same country code. We'll get this one fixed.
