For the month of June, St. Thomas Public Library was gearing up for Canada Day with a Canadian Trivia Draw called “Canadian, eh?” This is the second year for our “Canadian, eh?” draw and we’re pleased to present it to a new crowd with our move to Elgin Mall.
This year, the questions proved to be a bit more challenging. For those who might not have been able to participate, here is a recap of the questions and answers on the “Canadian, eh” ballot:
- What is Canada’s capital city? Answer: Ottawa
- What is Canada’s longest river? Answer: Mackenzie River
- In what year was Canada’s current flag adopted? Answer: February 15, 1965
The last question proved to be the toughest, but astute library customers may have noticed a poster hanging not far away with the correct answer on it. Kudos to those who found it or already knew the answer!
Congratulations to our winners!
