Canada has over 3 million lakes . . . more than every other country in the world combined.



There are some two million lakes in Canada, covering about 7.6 percent
of the Canadian landmass. The main lakes, in order of the surface area
located in Canada (many large lakes are traversed by the Canada-U.S.
border), are Huron, Great Bear, Superior, Great Slave, Winnipeg, Erie
and Ontario. The largest lake situated entirely in Canada is Great Bear
Lake (31,328 km2) in the Northwest Territories. The deepest lake is
Great Slave Lake, N.W.T., 614 metres.

    Did anyone know, that during the G20 summit in Toronto last summer, the Prime Minister Stephen Harper spent a whooping $2 million dollars to have a fake lake built despite having 3 million lakes, and despite the fact where the conference was, was across from one of the biggest of the 5 great lakes!!!!!

    Nope, I didn't know this. As far as my geographical knowledge goes, lakes are probably what I know the least about.

    So its Canada thats coveting most of the lakes. And here I thought it was an entirely different country that was hoarding bodies of water...
