10. Trivia:

Newfoundland is the youngest part of Canada, voting in 1949 to leave "dominion"
status with the UK and join Canada.

I have a friend who retired there. He loves the people, even though he jokes about the unimaginative name (Let's call it 'new found land') and claims that some were in favor of Quebec independence because, if Quebec left Canada, it would then be 4 hours closer to Toronto.

He said seeing icebergs is no big deal up there, comparing it to Southerners who move up North and get excited the first few times it snows heavily.
