Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Glaciers are denoted by a blue shape with white dots. If I wanted to go to the Caribou Glacier, which mountains should I visit?

Answer: Selkirk Mountains

The Caribou glacier is one of three located in Kokanee Glacier Park in British Columbia, the others being Kokanee glacier itself and Woodbury. The park was originally set up in 1922, making it one of Canada's oldest. The Selkirk mountains run from Idaho in the USA, through the eastern part of Washington into British Columbia. The Mackenzie Mountains are on the borders of Yukon and Northwest Territories, while the Torngat Mountains are on the Labrador Peninsula. The Cape Breton Highlands are in the province of Nova Scotia.

The picture hint should have helped if you knew that Alexander Selkirk was the likely inspiration for the character of Robinson Crusoe in Daniel Defoe's novel.
2. Craters are identified by a shape rather like a ring doughnut. Clearwater Lakes, formed by impact craters, can be seen in which province?

Answer: Quebec

Although the lakes appear at first glance to be two separated ones, the dividing line between them is actually formed by islands. The craters from which the lakes formed are believed to have been caused by an asteroid, possibly a binary one, hitting the ground during the Permian period of geology.

The pictorial clue is a fleur de lis, one of the symbols of Quebec. The official name of the lakes, in French, is Lac l'Eau Claire and they are known by different names in both the Cree and Inuit languages.
3. Lakes are shown by an irregular blue circular shape. The Great Slave Lake is one of Canada's largest lakes. Which regional capital is situated on its border?

Answer: Yellowknife

The lake was named in 1771 by the British fur trader, Samuel Hearne, for the native American tribe living in the area. The lake is the second largest wholly in Canada, after the Great Bear Lake. Yellowknife was established in the 1930s following the discovery of gold in the region, and became capital of the Northwest Territories in 1967.

The picture shows the Northwest Territories in red. Winnipeg is the capital of Manitoba, Regina of Saskatchewan and Edmonton of Alberta. These three make up the prairie provinces of Canada.
4. The boundaries of a park or reservation are shown by long lines separated by dots. Point Pelee National Park is located at the southernmost point of mainland Canada.

Answer: True

Situated in southwest Ontario, Point Pelee is located on a peninsula which reaches into Lake Erie. It became a national park in 1918, particularly as a sanctuary for wild birds, with its location covering two major routes for bird migration. The park is particularly popular with visitors in the spring, who come to see the wide variety of wildlife - more than 350 different species of birds have been identified in the park.

Your picture clue shows a version of the Southern Cross constellation, also known as Crux, which I hope didn't confuse you as it is more associated with the southern hemisphere.
5. Places of worship are identified by a black square and cross. St. Jude's Cathedral, in Iqaluit, was demolished in 2006 following damage by which of these?

Answer: Fire

The original cathedral, consecrated in 1972, was built in the shape of an igloo in recognition of the local people. It included many interesting features including a cross made from narwhal tusks and a pulpit in the shape of a sled. Sadly, the cathedral was badly damaged by a thief and arsonist and had to be demolished. A replacement was built, following a similar design, and opened in 2012.

The clue shows gunfire as a hint, which was the closest I could get without it being a complete giveaway. Unfortunately, none of the photos I could find of the cathedral were available to use, but it's certainly worth looking them up.
6. Cave entrances are shown by a symbol which looks like a letter Y on its side. A provincial park on Vancouver Island is named for which caves?

Answer: Horne Lake Caves

According to the official government website, there are more than a thousand caves on the island. The park was opened in 1971 having been set up to ensure conservation of the caves, following instances of vandalism. The cave entrances were gated to prevent unauthorised access and some caves are only open to visitors who join official guided tours.

The photo was meant to guide you to the rhinoceros's horn, rather than the animal itself, although there is a Rhino Cave in Botswana.
7. A reservoir is shown by a shape resembling a teacup without a handle. What is the name of the reservoir in Labrador which was formed by damming the Churchill River?

Answer: Smallwood

The reservoir is located on the Labrador Plateau and was formed in the 1960s when the Churchill River was dammed, via a system of dikes, at Churchill Falls. It powers a large hydro electric scheme, and bears the name of Joseph Smallwood, the politician who ensured that Newfoundland became part of Canada in 1949. McTavish reservoir is in Montreal, Seton Lake reservoir is in British Columbia and Braddock Lake reservoir is in Saskatchewan.

If you thought the picture clue was of a reservoir, you were focusing on the wrong part. You should have been looking at the small trees, for Smallwood.
8. Canals are shown by a straight blue line. Which well known canal is located in Ottawa?

Answer: Rideau

The Rideau Canal joins Ottawa to Kingston, located on lake Ontario. It was originally opened in 1832 and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. Originally built for military purposes, the canal had a brief period of commercial use before becoming a waterway for private pleasure cruising. All the options are canals in Canada - the Lachine is on the island of Montreal, the Murray runs from the Bay of Quinte in Ontario and the Welland runs between lakes Ontario and Erie.

Since the name of Rideau, for the canal and river, is derived from the French name for curtains, that is the picture I chose for your clue.
9. Heights are denoted by contour lines on a map. Mount Fairweather, one of the world's highest to be located close to the coast, overlooks which body of water?

Answer: Pacific Ocean

The mountain is located on the border of the USA and Canada, with much of it being in Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park, However, the summit is in British Columbia, so that qualifies it as being Canadian. It was named by James Cook, the British explorer and stands at 4,663 metres (15,388 feet) in height. It was climbed for the first time in 1931. Although it is fourteen miles or so from the coast, the Pacific Ocean is clearly visible from the top.

The photo hint is of a peace symbol, to point you towards the Pacific Ocean.
10. Rivers are shown by a wavy blue line on a map. Which of these Canadian rivers is located in Nunavut?

Answer: Ferguson

The river, which rises in Ferguson Lake, was explored and named by Joseph Burr Tyrrell in 1894, with both the river and lake being named after a member of the exploration party. The river reaches the coast in Hudson Bay, near Whale Cove. Of the other options, there are five Beaver Rivers in Ontario and the Hunter River is on Prince Edward Island. The Dauphin River is in Manitoba.

The picture is of an old Ferguson tractor. I might have chosen Sir Alex Ferguson, if the rules had allowed.
