Canada 150 makes it on Jeopardy! board with Alex Trebek

Canadian game show host gave clues in a category about the milestone birthday on Friday's episode
By Zulekha Nathoo, CBC News

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek celebrated Canada Day with a category on the game show Friday about the country's sesquicentennial.

"Canadians are highly respected, as you know, no matter where you travel in the world," Trebek, who is an official representative for the Canada 150 celebrations, told CBC News in Los Angeles. "Here, in California, you mention you're from Canada and people just look at you in a friendlier way."

The popular game show, which Trebek has been hosting since 1984, showcased a series of clues that most Canadians would have had little trouble getting right. They ranged from correctly identifying the Quebec flag to naming the national anthem.

"We weren't really making it too difficult on Americans," the Jeopardy! host joked.

The rest here.
