    I got a 70% mostly guessing. Even got the Manitoba specific ones right somehow.

    I really want to see what Americans can get since there is a lot of Canadian history in it.

    I also want to see you answers to this question:
    136. Who is the leader of the Federal Official Opposition Party and what party?
    a. Thomas Mulcair
    b. Stéphane Dion
    c. Bob Rae
    d. Adrian Dix

    104. In the 1960s, Quebec experienced an era of rapid change. What is this called?
    a. The West Movement.
    b. The Revolution.
    c. The Quiet Revolution.
    d. La Francophonie.

    For fun:
    60. What is Canada’s system of government called?
    a. Dictatorship.
    b. Parliamentary government.
    c. Military Rule.
    d. Communism.

    Answers:
     
    Thomas Mulcair (NDP) and The Quiet Revolution
    I got a 60% for Ontario (the closest province to where I live), which is a lot higher than I thought I would get, since I did a lot of guessing, but would still probably fail.

    I got 95% but then i'm Canadian Some of the questions were worded very strangely and really made me have to think about what they were looking for though.

    May be tied to but is still service sector. natural resources would be people like miners or oil drillers. All other jobs usually fall into the service industry and those jobs created because of those natural resources are usually service aswell, someone has to do the bookkeeping, run stores, administration, etc. and there are usually far more of those than there are actual miners. Then there is the fact that the rest of the country outside of mining towns is pure service industry.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Re: Canadian Citizenship Test

    I know jack about Canadian history. I stopped after question 7 or so where I didn't know any of them for sure. It probably would have been a good idea to do something novel like read the Canadian constitution.
