It is ironic how one of the things I remember the most about the men’s U-20 FIFA World Cup held in Canada (2007) is this one political cartoon that depicted the beaver (a Canadian symbol) smoking a joint with one paw on a soccer ball and a speech bubble saying “Who cares about soccer when we’re #1?”. That tournament had a sad ending, folks. Canada was knocked out of the group stages without winning a single game (I can’t even remember if we managed to score a single goal, maybe we didn’t). Either way, it was about this time that a study was done saying Canada is #1 in the consumption of, guess what, marijuana (seriously, you’ll have to read the news to believe it…or not, if you’ve ever been to Vancouver at all; fact check: leads the world in terms of industrialized countries, that explains a lot!
