Oh, so it's along the "to protect and serve" mandate lines. Pour quoi c'etait en francais, quand le service a ete commence en anglais?

I think the horse emission motto would have been a good idea, maybe as a sub motto.

It means maintain the law, although that may not be exact.

Here's an easy one: What year was the NHL created?

Actually it is Maintain the Right

Although I don't think that means vote for Harper.....unfortunately.

Name a prominent leader of the Canadian Sufferage movement. Nellie McClung

Bonus - what date did women get the vote? Women in what is now known as Canada could vote before Confederation if they owned property, but after Confederation in 1867 they were legally barred from voting. In 1917, women were allowed to vote if they met an exception for military personnel stationed abroad. "Bluebirds", nurses caring for wounded soldiers in Europe in World War I, were the first women to vote legally in a Canadian federal election. In 1918, women had the same voting rights as men in federal elections.

Native Canadians... By 1920, native people everywhere in Canada had the right to vote. But Status Indians had to give up their treaty rights and registered Indian status to do so. In 1960, that condition was removed from election legislation.
