One thing that blew my mind when I learned it is that, St.Johns Newfoundland (the almost easternmost point of Canada) is closer to Zagreb, Croatia than it is to Tofino, British Columbia (the almost westernmost point of Canada).— Paul Sheldon (@PaulAllen420) October 15, 2021
I've heard stories from colleagues about visiting relatives who wanted to tour locations in Canada while not having a clue about geography. For example, someone's parents were interested in going to the local mall and then a drive over to see Niagara Falls later that day.
They were in Montreal! That's a fourteen-hour round trip. The parents were even more bummed to learn that driving to Vancouver was totally out of the question.
