I like the Canadian question about : "Who was Sir Louis-Hippolyte La Fontaine?"

b. A champion of democracy and French language rights and the first leader of a responsible government in the Canadas.

Does that mean they had irresponsible governments until he got there ?

'Responsible government' being a 19th-century buzzword meaning 'democratically accountable' - the government to the Commons, the Commons to the electorate - then, yes. The previous governments were irresponsible Big Grin.

It's actually almost trick question, because in the Canadas refers to the (then-known-as) Canada East (Quebec) and Canada West (Ontario).

The first responsible government in what would later become Canada was in Nova Scotia, then a separate colony.

There is of course the difference between stupid and ignorant.

Well, considering the studies I've read where the majority of American citizens wouldn't have passed the test to get citizenship in their own country, I think I'll wallow in my pride a bit longer. Tongue

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.
