Lacrosse is our Official National sport, and it was invented in South Americas.
Hockey and Basketball were invented in Canada, but Hoops went south and it a tall person’s game.

America is divided sharply their north to their south and then the coasts against the middle.
Canada is a west to east or east to west and then the true north, depending on which way you count, Ontario and Quebec start with themselves, so it’s the middle against the coasts up north.

Canada has no abortion law and now it has no euthanasia law or some other less emotionally worded phrase that people do not confuse with eugenics, something which the British Columbia and Alberta governments did in fact practice – arising from the same false application of using sciencey words to remove the emotion from religiously judgmental language.
Today in America, Muhammad Ali, famed boxer, had a livestreamed Celebrity studded funeral.
This year, there are no Canadian hockey teams in the Stanley Cup.
