Canada has its own top-notch film festivals. And many popular American television series are filmed or have filmed in the Great White North. Remember X-Files? When watching episodes of Arrow, Reign, Once Upon a Time, and Suits, for instance, you might keep an eye out for indications you're in Vancouver or Toronto. Easiest bet is to look for a Tim Horton's in the background since they are everywhere! But, in the meantime, here's a quiz that tests your awareness of Canadian television shows. Some of them have also air across the border in the United States.
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation got its start in the 1920s as a purveyor of radio broadcasts. In 1952, though, the first CBC and Radio-Canada television stations began broadcasting in Toronto and Montreal. By 1955, CBC/Radio-Canada's television services were available to 66 percent of the Canadian population. In the 1970s, Canada made history in this when it launched the world's first national domestic satellite. Put into orbit in 1972, the Anik A1 satellite gave CBC/Radio-Canada the ability to beam television signals to the Canadian North for the first time in history. In this same decade, national regulators introduced Canadian content rules calling for public and private television broadcasts to show a minimum of 60% of Canadian content.
