To many people and other countries, Canada is just the home of hockey and really apologetic people, but being the second largest country in the world, there’s a lot more to Canada. As the second largest country, Canada has a population of roughly 36 million, which is only 0.5% of the world’s population. Considering how large the country is, it’s hard to imagine since one of its national parks, Wood Buffalo National Park, is larger than two of the world’s countries, Denmark and Switzerland. This is just an example of one of Canada’s national parks that is bigger than an entire country, as there are a number more parks equally as large.
Another fact that not many people know about Canada is that because the people apologize so much, in 2009 the Apology Act was passed to make all apologies inadmissible in court. Now, any apology is merely an expression of sympathy or regret, rather than an admission of fault or guilt. Also, as the second largest country in the world, Canada has the longest coastline of any other country, which encompasses six different time zones. Walking around the coastline of Canada would take roughly four and a half years.
