On this very special episode, we count down our Top 5 favourite Canadian Heritage Minutes. Ever since they first started appearing in 1991, the Canadian Heritage Minutes have captured our Nation’s collective imagination. From Winnie the Pooh’s tangential association to Canada, to Dr. Penfield’s brain-poking, we learned about Canadian history in its ideal format: 60-second bursts that give you the gist of the story while you’re waiting for something better to come on.
Learn— the secret dark origin of basketball, Marshall McLuhan’s connection to the X-Men, which Heritage Minute should be played before every screening of Man of Steel, and more!
