1/5th of those are Canadian islands. Vancouver Islaod and PEI, Cape Breton must be right next on the list as well as the rest of the Arctic Archipeligo. Canada ... 2 million lakes and at least that many islands.

So what? Does that somehow shrink the island of Great Britain?

It's not little. It's the ninth-largest island in the world. And the UK is the eighth- largest island nation in the world.

Good thing that it isn't number 11 or you'd run out of fingers to hold aloft.

There are 49 countries - including 5 that are partially recognised - that are landlocked, the largest being Kazakhstan...



... the smallest being Vatican City, about a third the size of Hyde Park...

No, but it does show that the largest two Canadian islands are larger than your whole empire and they are only part of one (1) Canadian territory.

You meet this 'cowboy' online?

When he is at a livestock auction how many head is he looking for if both pant-legs are tucked inside his cowboy boots?

But that still doesn't take away the fact that Great Britain is a huge island.

That's like saying that India isn't huge because Canada is bigger than it. It's like saying that Jabba the Hutt isn't huge because he's a lot smaller and better looking than Fat Jen the Team Leader at work.
