A Canada Day Tradition

With the Pan Am Games just weeks away and Canada Day right around the corner, Molson Canadian and its famous beer fridge want to celebrate its diversity by getting global.

The new fridge, which will make its public debut at the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games in Ontario, will only open if the words "I am Canadian" are uttered in six different languages.

The new fridge uses Google's Speech Recognition API and other technologies to recognize 40 languages, from French to Hindi. Once the fridge recognizes the key phrase "I am Canadian," the doors finally open to reveal an abundance of ice cold vintage Molson Canadian cans.

Molson Canadian's original beer fridge first gained popularity after its launch in 2013, followed by its success at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. There, the fridge required users to flash a Canadian passport in order to open the doors to the frosty brew.

A Nice Moral Victory

Finally someone is calling Trump on his racist bullshit. There are many, many reasons why Trump has been avoided his due Karma up to this time. To take away the ego mobile that is the Apprentice will hit him where it hurts him the most. I am interested to hear his spin on this. He only speaks for himself. He has no spokesperson lest THEY mangle his words.

Of course the show will be sold to another network desperate to show this program. Want to be that FOX finds a way to shoehorn the Apprentice into their fall schedule? Trump is their boy. They will find some way to prop up this crumbling monument to buffoonery. He says what all of them are thinking.

Trump has learned that ratings don't count for shit when you make a television NETWORK feel uncomfortable. Networks always treat incidents like this seriously because their entire business model relies on appealing to an advertising demographic. They can't be tarred with the same brush as this celebrity offender. Trump put them in this position. The squirming of the bigots continue.

No more Ivanka?? That hurt ME! That is the real injustice here. Ivanka is all right.

Now what can we do to punish Sarah Palin for her collection of douchebag behavior?

Oh Illya

You is dreamy.

15 Facts About The Great White North

1. We made the world’s first $1-million coin
In 2007, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the world’s first million-dollar coin (it was also named the world’s largest gold coin by Guinness World Records). To date, five of these coins have been bought by investors.

2. We eat 55 percent more Kraft Dinner than Americans do
Yes, us northerners really love instant macaroni and cheese—which maybe isn’t so surprising given The Barenaked Ladies even referenced this university dinner staple in their song, “If I Had a Million Dollars.”
3. We built the world’s first UFO landing pad
St. Paul, Alberta, is home to the world’s first landing pad for alien life. The raised cement pad was built in 1967 and was officially opened by then Minister of National Defense (and open alien conspiracy theorist) Paul Hellyer.
4. We never owned Alaska
It’s a common misconception that Canada “sold” Alaska to the U.S. Not true. Our southern neighbours bought the state from Russia in 1867.
5. We almost shared currency with Iceland
In the aftermath of the country's economic collapse, Iceland’s government publicly considered adopting Canada’s currency, prompting speculation that Greenland would also consider taking on the loonie.
6. We’re home to the waterfall capital of the world
The region surrounding the steel town of Hamilton, Ontario, has more than 100 waterfalls, and is dubbed both “The City of Waterfalls” and “The Waterfall Capital of the World.” It may be a self-made claim, but it works for publicity: do a Google search for “waterfall capital” and top spots go to the Hammer.
7We harvest icebergs in Newfoundland and Labrador for vodka
Ever seen Iceberg Vodka at your local liquor store? It’s the only vodka in the world made from icebergs, which are harvested from Iceberg Alley, off Newfoundland’s east coast, then processed in St. John’s. Ontario has a hand in there, too—the alcohol part is triple-distilled from Ontario sweet corn.
8. We’re the garter snake capital of the world
If you’re not scared to see tens of thousands of red-garter snakes in a mating frenzy, head to the Narcisse Snake Den in Manitoba. For two periods each year, visitors can see “more snakes at a glance than anywhere else in the world," according to the Government of Manitoba’s website.
9. We’re the world’s largest exporter of lentils
Quick! Name our top exports! Wheat? Oil? Lumber? How about lentils? Yes, Canada exports more lentils than any other nation, producing 17 percent of the world’s supply and primarily exporting to India and Turkey.
10. We hold an annual bathtub race
Every July, you can watch—or take part in—the World Championship Bathtub Race in Nanaimo, British Columbia. The annual event started in 1967 and is run by a real organization known as the Loyal Nanaimo Bathtub Racing Society.
11. We have more doughnut shops per capita than anywhere else in the world
The doughnut may be commonly considered an American sweet, but it turns out we eat more of the deep-fried treat than anywhere else on the planet. Which maybe isn’t so surprising—how many Tim Hortons do you pass on your daily commute?
12. We supply a third of the world’s French fries
Thanks to the McCain empire, one-third of the world’s French fry supply comes from the small town of Florenceville-Bristol in New Brunswick.
13. We have the deepest underground physics lab in the world
The SNOLAB, located two kilometres underneath the city of Sudbury, is the deepest physics lab on earth. Work in the lab includes experiments about dark matter and research on supernovas.
14. Our tallest waterfall isn’t the Horseshoe
Niagara Falls may get all the glory, but the highest waterfall in Canada is actually in British Columbia’s Strathacona Provincial Park on Vancouver Island. Della Falls stands 440 metres, which is more than eight times the height of the Niagara Falls.
15. We’re a hotbed for dinosaur research
One of the world’s richest dinosaur fossil fields is in Alberta’s badlands, and archaeological excavations continue to take place there. The area has been designated as a provincial park (Dinosaur Provincial Park) and an UNESCO World Heritage site.
