SCORING:

1 point for each A or B    If you are Canadian you will score 10 out of 10  (Bs indicate that you may be living in Toronto and have lost touch with your Canadian-ness.  Do not worry.  It is still in there.  Swap your Starbucks mocha-crappa-frappa for a double-double at Timmy’s and it will all come back to you).

0 points for each C  If you score less than 10 there is a chance you may be American.  Do not panic.  Perhaps you are European!  If you score less than 5 you are almost certainly American.  This is okay.  You are still welcome to visit Canada.  While you are here, I recommend buying some Roots sweatpants.
