Oh, Canada! This land of maple syrup, Molson and very few people (considering its size) is the second largest country in the world. Canada is a mix of world-class cities like Vancouver and Montreal, and an impressive list of natural wonders including the Canadian Rockies, Niagara Falls and the Bay of Fundy.

But amid these cosmopolitan centres and stunning sites are Canada’s eccentricities. For instance, did you know $1 and $2 Canadian coins are called loonies and toonies? Or, that more than half of the world’s polar bear population calls Canada home? Not to mention, the country has the most doughnut shops per capita. (Doughnut road trip, anyone?)
