Do you know more about Canada or America?

A friend of mine since me a quiz this morning called "Could you become a U.S. Citizen" quiz I took it and got thirty five questions right out of 50.  I then took the "How well do you know Canada" and got 25 out of 30.

I'm wondering how others would score especially some of my friends in the United States would score on the Canadian quiz.

Feel free to take them & leave a comment on how you scored on both and we're your from.

Be A Part Of The Energy

So Calgary Economic Development is hosting a contest for people to come check out Calgary and see what it has to offer

"You’re invited to visit our city and check it out as great place to make a living and make a life. You could win two tickets to YYC from anywhere WestJet flies in Canada. Just tell us what you love about our city and enter to win an opportunity to experience our energy."

I am entering this contest for my parents who currently live in Pickering, Ontario. My wife & I recently had a daughter on July 1st, 2014 and my family all came out in August to see her. They loved Calgary and I'm trying to put the bug in their ear to move out here as I did in 2007 and this contest would be a great way to help with that.

I am very close with my family and have a trip planned for Easter to bring my wife & daughter to see them again but it's hard with her growing up so fast with them so far away.  We Skype every second day and my mother even sings her to sleep on occasion.

I don't make a lot of money and my wife is on Maternity leave so we're finding it hard to get by as it is.  If I had the money I'd fly them out myself.

My parents are retired Salvation Army officers who spent their lives helping others and putting others before themselves.  I am very thankful to have them in my life and this little contest would be an amazing way to say thanks and to have them see little Chloe one extra time this year.
