    cool facts about Canada

    I hear there are too few men in Canada.. apparently, for every 100 men, Canada has 102 women. Other cool facts include basketball and eggs. Basketball was invented in Canada by a Scottish man (can't remember his name). Also, Canada has about 30 million egg-laying hens laying about 8 billion eggs each year.
