Hello Bloggers! Happy Canada Day to us all!!

It is a drizzly day here but, no matter the weather, I hope you all do a little something to celebrate today. Perhaps even do this little Go Scrapping Canada Day Quiz! :)

I compiled 10 questions about Canada (and Canadians) from different sites throughout the internet put them together here for a fun little Canada Day activity.

I will send a RAK ( little scrappy gift) to the person with the most answers correct. If there are more than one person with the most correct answers, I will draw a name randomly to see who gets the RAK.

Post your answers in the comment section below. I will accept entries until tomorrow (July 2) at noon after which I will post the answers and the name of the winner.
Good Luck and HAVE FUN! Happy Canada Day!
