The Great Canadian Trivia Contest


  1. There still seems to be lots of problems with the Village in Ontario. I tried to post to it last week but could not get through. I'll post all questions as soon as I can get through.
  2. Important note to those that answer by means of the Village address. This address has been changed. The new address is listed at the end of this posting. Some who have tried to post to the old address have had their messages bounced back.
  3. When a list of students is sent in could you please indicate if these students answered the question:

    a) independently
    b) as a team or group
    c) as a team or group representing a class or school

The question is posted every week and therefore should appear each week. If you have not received the question by Thursday then please e-mail me personally and I will get it out to you with lots of time to answer the question. Please try to find it from the regular sources first and only use this in the event you can't find it in the regular places. If everyone asks for it to be sent personally it will tie up a tremendous amount of my time.


The Mackenzie River is the longest river in Canada and it is entirely within Canada. Name the next longest river that is entirely within Canada. It must not flow into or out of Canada or have one of its banks not in Canada.



Remember, don't post your answers to CM. Instead, send your answers to Steve Caldwell at one of the following e-mail addresses: or

April 8th's Question:

Let's see how well you know your National Parks. This is a three-part question.

  1. What is the largest National Park in Canada, in area?
  2. What is the smallest National Park in Canada, in area?
  3. Which National Park has the most visitors each year?
My information is based on the reporting year 1994-95.


  1. The largest National Park in Canada is Wood Buffalo National Park which straddles the Alberta-North West Territories border - 44,802 sq. km.
  2. The smallest National Park in Canada is St. Lawrence Islands National Park in the Thousand Islands in Ontario - 8 sq. km.
  3. Banff National Park has the most visitors each year. In 1994-95, 4,887,000 visited this park.
