MADE IN CANADA – Some interesting facts.

HERE THEY ARE:

  1. Did You Know Most of the World’s French Fries Come from New Brunswick?
    New Brunswick-based McCain Foods makes one-third of all the frozen French fries produced in the world, and many come from a $65-million state-of-the art potato processing plant that’s in Florenceville-Bristol.

The small town in western New Brunswick has taken on the moniker “The French Fry Capital of the World.”

Not surprisingly, this is the location of the Potato World museum, and the heart of the mid-July National French Fry Day celebrations.           

  1.  Did You Know Carleton Place Makes the World’s Best Baseball Bats?
    In 2012, more than 100 Major League Baseball players chose to swing Canadian maple wood bats – better known as the “Sam Bat”. Sam Holman, founder of the The Original Maple Bat Corporation, invented the bat by choosing maple wood, a harder wood than the traditionally used ash.

So, if you see a professional player with a little logo on their baseball bat, that’s one of the 18,000 sluggers produced each year in Carleton Place, a half-hour from Ottawa.

  1.  Did You Know Saskatchewan Makes Most of the World’s Lentils?
    Mmmm, Lentils! Whether home or travelling abroad, order some lentil soup and odds are you’re getting a little taste of Canada.

Canada is the largest exporter of green lentils in the world – about 1.5 million metric tonnes annually, with 95% of it coming from Saskatchewan.

  1.  Did You Know Scarborough Makes Most of the World’s Halls?
    If you pick up a pack of Halls you’ll be getting another little taste of Canada since they are made in Scarborough, Ontario.

The plant at Bertrand produced more than 6 billion pieces of “medicine” for the U.S. Last year – enough that if you lined them side-by-side they would
circle the earth at the equator approximately 3.4 times.

  1.  Did You Know The Royal Canadian Mint Makes Coins for Over 60 Countries?
    Canada produces currency for more countries than you can imagine!

The Royal Winnipeg Mint produces coins for 60 different countries, including Centavos for Cuba, kroner for Norway, and pesos for Colombia.

Currently the mint can produce over 20 million coins a day.

  1.  Did You Know Hamilton Makes the World’s Swedish Fish?
    Those chewy Swedish Fish sure weren’t made in Sweden!

More than 5 billion of the colorful little candies are produced in Hamilton, Ontario every year – that’s all of the Swedish Fish consumed in North America.

Every day about 13 million of the little fish are produced at a factory in Hamilton, which also makes all Maynards Candy for Canada, and key brands for the U.S., including Sour Patch Kids.

  1.  Did You Know Toronto Makes the World’s Best Racing Bikes?
    Using the same tools and techniques as Formula One teams, Toronto-based Cervélo builds what have been called the world’s fastest and lightest bikes.

At the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, athletes riding Cervélo bikes won 10 medals, while in 2008 Carl OS Sastre rode a Cervélo bike to win Le Tour de France.

  1.  Did you Know Winnipeg Makes Most of the World’s Scratch Cards?
    Walk into almost any corner store in the world for an instant win lottery ticket, and there’s a good chance your scratch card was printed by Winnipeg company Pollard Banknote.

Founded in 1907, Pollard now has facilities throughout North America, however, a significant amount of its lottery scratch cards are still made in Canada.

  1.  Did You Know the World’s Best Cymbals come from New Brunswick?
    Where do the cymbals used by Rush, Keith Harris of the Black Eyed Peas, the Philadelphia Orchestra and marching bands around the world come from?

The small village of Meductic (population 300), located along the Saint John River in southern New Brunswick. SABIAN cymbals are sold in 120 countries around the world.

  1.  Did You Know Trenton Makes Tons of Dinos?
    No, they don’t make dinosaurs like in Jurassic Park, but close.
    Research Casting International, the leading company for constructing dinosaur remains (casting, restoring, mounting, repairing), is located in a 45,000 sq.ft.
    Airplane-hanger-sized building in Trenton, Ontario.

The company has created more than 750 of the mighty beasts for museums around the world.

  1.  Did You Know Kelowna Makes Most of the World’s Water Slides?
    When you slip down one of those clear tube water slides on a Disney Cruise, you’re likely using Canadian design and technology.

Canada’s Whitewater West Industries Ltd. Is the largest water parks attraction company in the world.

Their Kelowna, B.C. Facility, FormaShape, makes thousands of water slides each year.

  1.  Did You Know Peterborough is the Custom Aircraft Capital of Canada?
    Flying Colours Corps. of Peterborough, Ontario doesn’t make airplanes, but they sure make them special.

Entertainment systems, corporate logos, iPad-holders, custom exterior paint, upholstery, and they’ve even added a permanent bed in an aft cabin. Everything is custom made in-house, from the leather seats and wood trim to the side walls – for customers from across the globe, including much of Europe, the Middle East, Russia, Asia, and India.

  1.  Did you know B.C. Makes Tons of Submarines?
    Atlantis Submarines, of British Columbia, actually owns more submarines than many countries – but these ones are used for tourism.

The Canadian company initiated the world’s first commercial tourist submarine in the Cayman Islands in 1986.

More than 10 million people have since experienced underwater adventures in their 48 and 64 passenger submarines in the Caribbean and Pacific.

The subs they operate in Barbados, the Cayman Islands, Aruba, St. Martin, Cozumel, Curacao & Guam were all made in Canada.

      Canada likes to spread propaganda, but I give credit to Glenn Lall for exposing the hypocrisy of corrupt Canadian politicians who rob my country of oil resources. The Canadian government uses archaic criminal libel laws to censor dissent. Hypocrites.

        My friend
        It’s not only the Canadian government that want
        Guyana’s natural resources ….it’s every multinational corporations arround the world.
        The greedy corrupt CEO’s will pay any price for
        the natural resources of the planet using whatever methods neccessary as is legally/illegal. Bribery and corruption their WMA
        (Weapon of mass accumulation) of wealth.

        Think nationally but also think internationally
        The world is global
        No longer local

        Good luck

        ExxonMobil is an American company and is the darling of Rex Tillerson, a friend of former President Trump.

        How did Alison Redford, a corrupt Canadian politician get into this oil contract? Bribes, Canada being more corrupt with less free speech than America?

    Lord septic, please check it out and you get a little suprise. Mother England is not the only country in the world

    Is Canada that bad for poor and non-white people?

    There are a few good men from India who are not “PPP” corruption. In the coming years, the oil monies will be used to fund condos in the regions of Toronto and Vancouver Canada.

    tax evasion surrounding real estate is a big issue. In GTA rent from illegal basements is gross and all in cash.

    One bed room illegal basement gives landlord 1300 dollars (G$205,000) tax free and no one cares.

    It is not simply demand supply. It is policy paralysis, greedy flippers and unregulated unsafe cash cow basements. Realtors want their hefty commission so they do not care about average canadian.

    (Unregulated) money from India pakistan mostly corruption money is eating up a good life for average canadian.

    As a country we need to constitute an inquiry commission to prevent going canadians homeless. Do u think that policeman, psw or grocery workers afford a place? It is big scam where ppl r getting laid off and house prices are rising.

      Trevor, u fretting so much. Take it easy nah – no good fuh blood pressure.

        Where you gonna marry and raise a family if PPP and Co. end up inflating the housing markets in not only Guyana, but in Canada and Alison Redford’s coffers?

    • kamtanblog  On 03/13/2021 at 11:14 pm

      My friend
      CorV is not wat we should fear as it
      is a “natural” man made virus.
      CORRUPTION is an “unnatural” man
      made curse we should fear most !
      It is an “unstoppable” pandemic
      for which there is no “quick fix” (vaccine)
      We allow donkies vote they elect jackasses.
      Multi national corporations rule our world
      today…politicians on their payroll.
      Repeat
      Guyana 🇬🇾 is just another failed state
      corporate bought and paid for.
      Shame !
      Disgraceful !
      Where are the “anti corruption” laws ???
      Was it not in the political manifestos aka BS

      Go figure
      Go gobble

    Corruption is also enabled by the ABCEU countries. Don’t put the full blame on the PPP because Alison Redford came to Guyana to do an underhanded deal which affected the Payara contract.

    Canada wants foreign money regardless if it’s from the savings of Freddie Kissoon while working at UG, or from the organ harvester from the Middle East living like Dubai millionaire.

    While the “African dictator” is blamed for looting the oil wealth, there are smiling faces at TD Bank, Scotiabank, HSBC, Euro banks, Bank of Canada and the corrupt lawyers and police who want to clean the dirty money.

    Meanwhile, try depositing G$15,000 cash at the teller at Republic Bank in GT.
