Basic Questions for Ontario Politicians

We have a provincial election coming up in Ontario and I am worried that some politicians do not know enough basic facts about Ontario.

If you want to be part of the government, I think you should know some Basic Information about Ontario.
Accordingly, I hope any politician I meet can answer some of these basic questions about Ontario. (I’ve printed out this map and have it ready by the door in case anybody comes by.)

  1. Please indicate our current location on the map below.
  2. What city is marked by the red dot?
  3. What’s the blue island?
  4. Identify Ontario’s largest provincial park, shown in green here.
  5. Approximately where is North Bay?
  6. Explain the difference between a University and a Community College.
  7. Who is the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario?
  8. Who is the premier of our neighbour to the west, Manitoba?
  9. Which of the three flags below is the flag of Ontario? What are the other two?
  10. If you were driving from Toronto to Niagara Falls, what cities would you pass through or by?
  11. What is the Chi-Cheemaun?

    For bonus points, recite any verse of “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”, or “Ontari-ari-ari-o”.
