Okay, I prefer Shania Twain over Celine Dion, but we also provided Alex Trebek, which must count for something.  Oh, yes in the engineering world we also invented:
electron microscope
light bulb
electric range
electric streetcar
tracer bullets
& even really useful stuff like the modern beer carton

Stan stan stan,
I love Canada as much as the next guy, and thanks TO them for Moosehead, the McKenzie brothers eh, and Celine Dion...... But curling! This great and exciting sport is from our Scottish bretheren. And I was close to shooting off my mouth about hockey but after a quick internet search some website claims Nova Scotia invented it so I will give them hockey. But I still think Celine Dion cancels out the positives of hockey. And I am sad to admit it was a Canadian who invented our sport of basketball. But he did so in 'Merica at least.
Have a nice weekend,
