I have some knowledge of Canadian geography but not extensive.  Like, I couldn’t point out on a map were a bunch of cities are but I know what is East vs. West and could name pretty much every province.  I don’t know where rivers and such are though.

I’m probably aided by the fact that I have family in Calgery, Alberta and part of my honeymoon was to Victoria, BC.  I’ve also travelled to some Canadian ski resorts for vacation before.

Sadly, I admit that I’m horrible with Canadian geography.  I know where a lot of major cities are, but there’s a lot that can be improved in my knowledge.  My Fiance and I sometimes talk about how so many people in the US don’t know or keep up on the politics of North America as a whole (I’m guilty of it myself).

I can estimate where the major cities are in Canada and probably guess most of the provinces, but Mexico? Forget it.  I know nothing.  Sad but true.

I can identify major cities in Canada, as well as all the provinces.  I can probably identify about half of the Mexican states, but that’s only because I used to work in a program that worked with the Mexican prison system pretty closely.

I’ll be the first to admit my Canadian geography could use improving much more than my Mexican geography.  I can tell you where a lot of things are in Mexico whereas my canadian geography is nothing more than a few pronvinces and cities.

I had a course in college where I was given a blank US map on the final and had to fill it in with postal appreviations.  Im good on that lol.

@florence: I have to admit I am pretty pathetic when it comes to Canada geography. I know where Toronto and Vancouver are. Makes me want to study up.

I do think I’m above average when it comes to country locations. In college I took a class and we had to learn where every country was and we were tested by continent. I know Africa like the back of my hand for some reason. When it comes to cities though, I am pretty clueless.

I didn’t even know Mexico had states! hahahaha.

I am pretty bang on with my US states and for a while could tell you all of the US states in alpha order, LOL. I opted to memorize them for no real reason. Practical knowledge? Have a pretty good idea of each states major cities and have really only visited a few states before for more than a day (MI, GA, FL)

Bring on anything Canadian related. Especially my home province, there is almost no where in this province I haven’t been!

I know a little bit about the geography of Mexico and very little about Canada.  I DO know that Canada’s above the lower 48 and next to Alaska.  God, I sound so ignorant.

I know US geography really well. But no, we were never taught about any other geography in school. I know a decent amount of Canada (provinces, a few cities) just because maps interest me and I know a few people in Canada.

Mexico, I’m mostly clueless, lol. I’m pretty good with countries in the world though, I had all of S. America’s countries and capitals memorized at one point… does that count for anything? lol
