September 10:


1939 - Canada declares war on Germany.


 


Please forgive me, Canadians...I know my Canadian history is rubbish (frankly, my American history isn't all that great either) but i was unaware Canada ever went to war with anyone.  If anyone's bored and would like to educate me, feel free to inbox.


Learn something new everyday :)
