The only place in the entire world where kids got to leave school early to watch the 2006 Olympic curling game. Also the only place where people actually watched the 2006 Olympic curling game at all.
Newfoundland sure likes curling.
The kindest province in Canada, with the wildest people who only start partying at 2:30 in the morning and don't stop until 5 the next day. Recently described by a survey as having the kindest, most polite people who are the most sexually active in Canada. Newfoundland is the best place in the world.
I live in Newfoundland, or as some people like to call it, the Rock.
The most easterly province in Canada, alos is home to the most Easterly Point in North America (Cape Spear). The provincial animal is the Puffin, but it should be the Moose! (even though it was only introduced in the 70's). Rich in cultural heritage, and it's natives are the proudest people in the world, as well nicest, and hard working. The women are beautiful and plentiful. It has a breed of dog named after it, Newfoundland Dog. It has the most bars per capita in Canada ... George Street. Here is where you can find the infamous Newfie Screech. The actual Screeching in ceramony is one that is practiced hundreds of thousands of times a year, both in Newfoundland and abroad.
Newfoundland joined confederation in 1949.
Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada's most beautiful and eastern province. Labrador is accessible via Quebec or by ferry from Newfoundland and the only way into or out of Newfoundland is by boat or airplane. One of Canada's most beautiful tourist destinations.
Guess what? We aren't redneck fishermen. Most of us (I say most for a reason) don't have a thick accent or say eh all the time. The fishery is still alive. We aren't barbarians either. So what if seals are killed? They aren't clubbed and white coats aren't killed anyway. Have you ever ate meat? What about that steak you had last Sunday? Eating a poor little animal that once had a life? Hypocrites.
Let's go to Newfoundland, Canada's best and most beautiful province for our next vacation!

Newfoundland has the most easterly point in canada
Newfoundland is an island of the east coast of Canada, possibly the best place on earth. contrary to popular belief there is no inbreeding what so ever. as a matter of fact, Newfoundland has the most beautiful woman on the face of the planet. Newfoundlanders are smart, hard working, funny, and like nothing more than to have a good drink after a long weeks work. A.K.A PARTY THEIR ASSES OFF! Newfoundland has put out such comedians as Rick Mercer, Mary Walsh and Cathy Jones. They are possibly the nicest people in the world. Sure the weather sucks, but obviously who ever actually cant take it is a pansy ass. All to the point of this guy " notnuffie " who obviously is a huge ass hole and thinks that Newfoundland is a shit hole well news for you dick head...they're amazing people, and just by seeing what you wrote, id rather die than have a conversation with you . The Seal Hunt for Newfoundlanders is a way of life, it keeps people going and has been a source of food, and profit for over 100 years...and up until the 90's they cought a load of fish, and are still working hard to contribute to the worlds oil supply.
Basics, Newfoundland is beautiful, amazing and arguably the funnest place on earth. and a lot of them are very proud and will gladly kick someones ass any day to fight for it.
Man i just got back from Newfoundland, that place kicks ass!
Canada’s eastern-most province and the last to join confederation. Also the most misunderstood province in Canada. They have a rich culture and a vibrant arts community. Many of Canada’s most prominent actors, writers and musicians are from Newfoundland. It’s capital is the oldest city in North America as well. Newfoundlanders are known for being friendly, disarming, unpretentious and hard working. They couldn’t make it as an independent country because they ran a huge debt after helping out England during the Second World War, where they suffered tremendous casualties at Beau Mont Hamel. The anniversary of this battle is July 1, also known as Canada day. They opted to join Canada for financial security, though some believe the vote was fixed. Canada had much to gain from Newfoundland’s rich resources. In fact their resources (fish, oil, energy and population) have been hijacked by Canada. They are self-deprecating and they never complain. They are unfortunately the butt of many stereotypes and crude jokes. They are fiercely patriotic and even have their own independence movement. Hopefully one day they will get the respect they deserve.
Newfoundland is the home of the oldest settlement in North America: L’Anse aux meadows by the Vikings 999-1001.
Newfoundland has a high rate of out-migration. Alberta’s workforce would collapse without Newfoundlanders.
The weather tends to be wet, windy and foggy in Newfoundland, however the temperature very rarely goes below 0 in the winter.
