Life began in Canada !!!!
The "eureka" moment--the idea that meteor impacts could benefit or even create conditions suitable for the beginning of early life--occurred when CSA geologist Gordon Osinski and his colleagues were surveying the rim of the crater and saw what looked like fossilized hydrothermal pipes. Hydrothermal systems are thought of by many as favorable places for life to evolve.
Coincidentally or not, life is believed to have emerged on Earth around 3.8 billion years ago, about the same time as the heaviest meteor bombardments on the planet. The impact craters of most of these blasts have long since eroded.

Hockey began in Canada, dunno about life.
Was Gretzkey a dinosaur?
I was not aware that the Tar pits extended beyond the wasteland.
I find the whole idea of defining life to a place that was not defined as a nation a bit presumtive.

Kind of spits in the face of early migrations of technology and man. But ok, Canada is the cradle of civilisation. It just wasn't discovered until 1492.

First ya'll claim to be the only country to burn down the white house (which is BS cause you didn't even exist as Canada back then) and now you claim the beginning of life. Damn, whats next, you invented the internet? LOL good one Egal!
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
