What do you think about the old cliché that Canada’s history is dull compared to America’s?
Canada’s history is actually tied closely to other countries; intertwined with U.S. and British conflicts and developments. Canadians have played major parts in some of the U.S. history's major turning points.
The Underground Railroad, for example, greatly helping slaves escape into Canada before and during the Civil War. The War of 1812, fought for two and a half years between the U.S. and the British, was fought partly on Canadian soil, and also involved the U.S. army attempting to invade parts of Canada.
Canada has one of the original wonders of the natural world — a giant, thunderous waterfall spanning two nations’ borders.
And Joe Shuster — the co-creator of Superman, the most powerful and iconic comic book character in history — was Canadian. How’s that for boring?
