Canadian 25 Cent Banknote Canada once had 25-cent paper money. This is an example. Known commonly as 'shinplasters,' they were discontinued in the early 1930s. Shinplasters can still be bought relatively cheaply from coin and banknote dealers.

Don Cherry on Inattentive Hockey Spectators Coach's Corner is a hugely popular intermission feature on Hockey Night In Canada. It features the flamboyant and bombastic former coach Don Cherry and the CBC's Ron McLean--who tries his best to keep Cherry under control. This is Cherry at his politically incorrect best from 1992.

Canadian Dollar Bills Most Canadians born after 1986 probably wouldn't recognize this bit of history: a one-dollar bill. Citing the high cost of paper money (an average bank note stays in circulation just 14 months before it has to be replaced), the Bank of Canada ceased production of the green bills in 1986. They were replaced by the much more durable $1 coins, commonly known as loonies because a loon is featured on them, that same year.

O Canada CBC Signoff Today (July 1) is Canada Day! Canada is now 141 years old. Allow me a little leeway to show my national pride. This is a pretty cool clip. It's the signoff which CBC Television used to conclude its broadcasting day. It blends O Canada with some native music while showcasing some of Canada's people, places, and natural beauty.

60th Anniversary Liberation of Holland Want to have a good time in the Netherlands? Wear something that identifies you as Canadian! In April 1945 the Dutch people were liberated from five years of Nazi occupation by forces largely comprised of Canadian troops. The Dutch have never forgotten the sacrifices made by the Canadians and are extremely grateful to this day. Here is a 2005 clip from the 60th anniversary celebrations of the liberation. The old gent shown for a few moments at the 4:05 mark is Smokey Smith, Canada's last Victoria Cross winner. He died a few months later.

Ben Johnson Steroid Scandal Can it be 20 years ago that this major sports scandal broke? Canada's Ben Johnson won the men's 100-metre sprint at the 1988 Seoul Olympics in a world-record time of 9.79 seconds. He didn't keep his gold medal very long. Two days later he tested positive for stanozolol--a banned steroid and was stripped of his gold medal. Track and field has never recovered from the scandal. Numerous other drug cheats have been busted since that infamous day in 1988. Whenever a world record is now broken, people tend to view it with great suspicion.

Bobby Orr Goal 1976 The greatest hockey player who ever lived, Bobby Orr, scores a goal for Canada versus Czechoslovakia in the 1976 Canada Cup tournament. Orr is a much beloved figure in Canada, for good reason. By 1976 Orr's knees were so damaged that he could barely walk. He had only played a few games the previous year and would only play a few more before he retired just before his 30th birthday. Many hockey people wondered if Orr could play at all in this major 1976 tournament. Despite everything, Orr was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

Canada Wins Gold Medal Time out for a little personal patriotic pride: Canada finally won its first Olympic gold medal today at the 2008 Beijing Olympics! It was won by 48-kilogram female freestyle wrestler Carol Huynh. She is the daughter of Vietnamese refugees who came to Canada in 1978. With the help of a church in Hazelton, British Columbia (population 1,500), the Huynhs managed to raise Carol and four other children. Carol's parents and husband were in attendance when she won her gold medal. Here's a CBC News clip of the happy event.

Jack Johnson Vs Tommy Burns 1908 On December 26, 1908, in Sydney, Australia, Jack Johnson became the first black fighter to win the world heavyweight title. He defeated Canada's Tommy Burns, the reigning champ, in 14 rounds. The clip ends just before the police intervened to halt the one-sided contest. They also shut off the movie cameras to ensure Burns' moment of defeat wouldn't be preserved on film.
