What Are You Thinking — Canada Edition

2013-1013 Canadian FlagThis short post is simply a list of questions that are intended to provide your brain with a little exercise. You may be able to answer some questions quickly, but there is a possibility you may not be able to answer all questions quickly. Each question has at least one answer. An answer may not be longer than two words, and the correct letter may be in the first or second word. Questions in the post titled “What Are You Thinking” are, in my mind, considerably easier to answer than the following questions.

  • Which Canadian Province does not include the letter “A” in its name?
  • What word, that includes the letter “B,” is sometimes used to describe an article of clothing in Saskatchewan and Manitoba?
  • What animal, found in parts of Canada, includes the letter “C” in its name?
  • Which Canadian singer has a “D” in his or her name?
  • Which Canadian NHL team, that includes the letter “E” in its name, has a home rink in Alberta?
  • What is the name of a Canadian Park that includes the letter “F” in its name?
  • Which 2011 movie, with the letter “G” in its two-word name, was filmed in several Canadian locations?

  • What is the name of a Canadian discount store that uses the letter “Z” in its name?
  • What is the six-letter word that uses the letters “A,” “E,” “I,” “O,” and “U” only once? According to members of AOL and Yahoo! News Canada the word means “alertness of mind and will” and is also the title of a book written by a Canadian poet. However, the name does not appear in most major English dictionaries.

Thanks to the person whose name includes the letters “M” and “C” for his or her contribution to this post by ensuring the questions and answers use valid Canadian terminology.

    I appreciate you going to this effort to create a Canadian version. It is going to be fun answering the questions. I have answered some, but need to stop “playing” to attend to some other tasks. I will be back.
