There are times when I speak and, based on the reactions of those around me, I feel very much like Cliff Clavin, the know-it-all barfly from the 1980-90s sitcom Cheers. You see, from the fall of 2013 through the winter of 2014, I researched and wrote a book called Canadian Geographic Biggest and Best of Canada: 1000 Facts & Figures ( in stores now! ), which boasts national superlatives in a number of categories, such as geography, weather, sports, pop culture, etc, etc. And so, it seems (to me at least) like I know an impressive stat or feat relating to just about anything and everything in Canada, and it feels fun to share them (and I don’t intend it in a know-it-all way anymore than I expect Clavin did). If you enjoy trivia, particularly Canadian trivia, or have a particularly fascination with Canadian facts and feats, you’ll surely enjoy my new book. In the following weeks, I’ll share a selection of my 10 favourites from each category in hopes of further capturing your interest. This week: geography .
