That is Canadian list.As mentioned,it may not reflect US choices :(
It blows my mind how little Americans know about any country other than their own.
Right handed steering...jeez.
The capital of New York state is Albany, not NYC as some would expect. New York City has five boroughs. I know some of them Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, Harlem...is Staten Island a borough? So shoot me. Rudy's your mayor, Dinkins was the last one, and...was Koch the one before Dinkins?
Oh yeah...and your new Senator-elect is Hillary. Good luck, buddy!
Now, if you can correctly spell the name of Canada's Prime Minister without looking it up on the internet, I'll be impressed. Had dinner in the same restaurant a few tables away from him Friday night here in Vancouver.
Funny...went outside to get my car and the RCMP had my 323i blocked in.
PS: The US has 50 states, and Canada has 10 provinces and three territories. I can name all of your 50 states, but I bet not a single person on this board can name the 10+3 in Canada without looking it up on the 'net.
The gauntlet has been thrown!
