Canada has a rich, vibrant history spanning back generations…

It also has many people that are more than happy to (slightly) bend the truth about how our true and native land became the place it is today.

Canadian satire website, The Beaverton, took to Twitter on Monday asking Canadians to share some fake Canadian history in honour of their newly released book, Glorious and/or Free. 

Canadians were more than happy to take them up on the offer, and Twitter has been filled with tweets featuring the #fakehistoryfromCanada hashtag ever since.

Some our more talked about attributes (or stereotypes, depending on who you’re asking) were naturally hit upon, such as how Canadians are known for being such an apologetic lot.

And speaking of the national anthem..

Of course, Canada’s official winter sport needed to be addressed.

Along with out favourite breakfast topper.

And the way we speak sparked a few fake history lessons as well.

It’s not too late to join in on the jokes, you simply need to come up with your own fake Canadian history and use the hashtag #fakehistoryfromCanada on Twitter.
