Is lacrosse the national sport of Canada?

== == "In 1994, Bill C-212 was introduced to officially declare hockey as Canada's national sport. Opposition came from supporters of lacrosse who wanted to recognize the traditional and cultural significance of this sport. Consequently, Bill C-212 was amended to recognize both sports. Thus, on May 12, 1994, Canada's National Sport Act (Bill C-212) became law, reading: "To recognize hockey as Canada's National Winter Sport and lacrosse as Canada's National Summer Sport". While hockey's popularity is unquestionable - especially in Canada, lacrosse is still enjoyed by Canadians and has gained popularity in the United States, England, Ireland, and Scotland." Website:

History of Canada

When did the first Acadians come to Canada?

It depends on which land you are talking about. French settlers became known as Acadians by making their home in part of Nova Scotia in Canada, around 1605.

They were removed from their homes and deported by the ruling English from Nova Scotia in 1755. This is the year they began to arrive in Louisiana, and the word "Acadian" evolved into "Cajun".


is wrong

Before the 1600s there was no group of people known as Acadians. The group originated in the area of what is now Nova Scotia. So Acadians could not come to Canada as they didn't exist before Canada.

The second contributor is splitting hairs a little. Of course there was no country called Canada when the first French settlers arrived on this continent. Take the spirit of the question, please.

Actually, the first French settlement in this part of the world was at the St. Croix River, which is in Maine now. Acadians, who were (and are) distinct from the Quebecois of what became Lower Canada, could be found in what is now Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island (then called Ile St. Jean). Because the French crown pretty much left them to their own devices in many regards, they developed a sense of community and social identity that was, indeed, distinct from their confreres up the St. Lawrence.

Ice Hockey

Why is there more national pride shown in hockey than in other major sports?

The countries that show such pride are typically the stronger teams, and often those with long histories in the sport. Canada and the northern European countries are normally quite fierce in competition ice hockey, where the central European, south/middle Asian and Australasian countries are very supportive of their teams in field hockey.

Politics and Government

What does constitutional monarchy mean?

A constitutional monarchy is a form of government, combining two concepts: a Monarchy and a Constitutional Democracy.

A Constitutional Democracy is a form of republic where the base rules of government are spelled out in one or more "founding" documents. That is, the government's duties and functions are defined in writing; this may be supplemented by Common Law legal rulings to define a body of official law that describes how the government is to be conducted. One major component of this body of law is that the government is some form of democracy, with a citizenry able to vote and participate in government.

A Monarchy is a form of government where a single individual acts as absolute head of state. This individual's position is usually (but not always) hereditary.

The combination of the two yields a form of government where the Executive Branch is headed by a Monarch, while the Legislative and Judiciary branches are run on Constitutional grounds (i.e. founded in law and with citizen participation). In some forms, the Monarch continues to wield significant (or even perhaps absolute) Executive power, while in others, the Monarch is little more than a figurehead.

Math and Arithmetic

How is math used in sports?

Sports uses Statistics

Statistics, for example, were used in the Olympics, for the medals table and various qualifications for SPORTING events.

You have to know math to determine a baseball player's batting average (number of base hits / number of at bats), a team's winning percentage (number of wins / number of games played), or a pitcher's earned run average (number of earned runs / (number of innings pitched / 9)).

You have to add points up to get a team's total score.

Well of course you know that but , for example in basketball ,the player may know her or his sweet spot (where they mostly get the ball in the hoop) so they must remember where their sweet spot is. Does that sound a bit less confusing?

Another application of math in sports is the use of angles. Goaltenders use angle to reduce the amount of net that a player has to shoot out. The further towards the player they come the closer they are to intercepting the shot.

What is the average size of a ski resort?

There really is no average size. Sure, you could take all the resorts and average their size but there are a few problems with that. First of all, there are so many ski resorts in America that it would take forever to get the average. Second, the size of resorts varies so greatly that if you did take the time to average it out it wouldn't be a very good representation. I know of ski resorts that have over 35 lifts and 200+ runs, but also of ski resorts that have 1 lift and 5 runs. If you really wanted an average I would suggest averaging the ski resorts within a county or if you live in or want the average of a small state or one with only a few resorts average that.

There is a variety of vegetation that grows in the Cordillera region. The vegetation includes: douglas fir, forage grass, white spruce, lodge pole pine, ponderosa pine, and many other grasses. This vegetation grows here because it rains a lot and the soil is good.

A variety of wildlife can be found throughout the Cordillera region. Some of the animals are: falcons, woodland caribou, deer, moose, squirrel, wolverines, grizzly bears, mountain goats, and golden eagles. These animals make this region their home because of the mountains and because of the trees, grass, landscape, food, and beautiful nature.
