Go NL!

For those of you who live below the big red country/ "Great White North" in North America (or perhaps somewhere's else in the world) NL is for Newfoundland
That's "New-fin-land"
NOT "Newfound-land"
Newfoundland - WOW ! Who knew...

If you're a Newfie, you should be proud! If you aren't a Newfie.....I bet you wish you
were!

Here are a few tidbits of information that you may never have known before:
WE WERE. . ..

~ The first province to respond to Titanic's distress signal.
~ The first to vaccinate for smallpox.
~ The first to host a transatlantic flight.
~ The first to have wireless communication in the world.
~ First place to discover proof of the continental drift theory.
~ The only place in North America to receive a direct hit from an enemy ship during WW2

WE HAVE. . . ..
~ The oldest street in North America.
~ 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.
~ 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).


WE 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)


A NEWFOUNDLANDER. .
~ built the world's first artificial ice arena
~ invented the gas mask
~ was once governor of northern Rhodesia
~ was with Abraham Lincoln atGettysburg


WE ARE THE ONLY PROVINCE TO HAVE IT'S OWN. . .. . . . .
~ encyclopedia

~ cultural publication


By reading this, you now know more
about Newfoundland than... well, almost everyone!
