The narrows, St. John's, Newfoundland
Newfoundland - the place to be!
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.
The oldest street in North America and the oldest city in North America. The oldest rock in the world
The oldest.................. continuous sporting event (Regatta Day rules! ) The largest university in Atlantic Canada, the most pubs per square foot in Canada (George Street) The longest running radio program in North America, caught the world's largest invertebrate (giant squid)
Newfoundlanders are...the funniest people in Canada (ask anybody)
The sexiest people in Canada (MacLean's magazine survey)
The only Province that has four identifiable flags, the only Province able to land the space shuttle (Stephenville) The most giving people in Canada (Stats Canada) The most sexually active people in all of Canada (what else are we gonna do!!) A NEWFOUNDLANDER. . . . . built the world's first artificial ice arena, invented the gas mask, was once governor of northern Rhodesia, was with Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg
THE ONLY PROVINCE TO HAVE IT'S OWN. . . . . . . . encyclopedia, dictionary pony, dogs, cultural publication
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.
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.
