  6. 6. Interesting facts Basketball – A Canadian Invention Basketball was invented by a Canadian – Dr. James Naismith. He was born on November 6, 1861 in Ramsay township, near Almonte, Ontario. His mother and father had immigrated to Canada from Scotland. While at school Naismith’s played a game called duck-on-a-rock, trying to knock a “duck” off the top of a large rock by throwing another rock at it. He remembered this when tasked with devising an indoor, winter game for 18 students at the YMCA Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA. He wanted to provide students with an activity that required skill and not strength. Basketball was the result. 6
  7. 7. Facts about Canada The Good Oil – From Canada Canada produces more oil than it consumes Canada produces more oil than it needs for domestic consumption. Nearly all of the surplus is exported to the USA. The USA buys more oil from Canada than from any other country, including Saudi Arabia.
  8. 8. Facts continued Good Eggs – Eggs in Canada Each Canadian eats an average of about 190 eggs a year. In total, Canada has about 20 million egg-laying hens laying about 7 billion eggs each year. Canada has just over one thousand regulated egg farms with an average of between 17,000 and 18,000 hens each. One egg farm in the United States, which is home to about 280 million egg-laying hens, can produce as many eggs as all of the egg farms in Canada combined.
