Do you know the good times from the bad, from the prosperous times to the Great Depression? Do you know what makes Canada really tick? If you said "yes" to any of those questions, and you think you know the answers, and you think you have what it takes to become a Canadian citizen, sit back, relax, put on your thinking cap and take this quiz to see if you have what it takes to be a proud Canadian!
