Miscellanea

  1. Canada a.k.a. The Government of Canada, formally Her Majesty's Government, is the federal democratic administration of Canada, and by a common authority levies taxes to pay for common goods; in Canadian English, the term can mean either the collective set of institutions or specifically the Queen-in-Council. In both senses, the construct was established at Confederation, through the Constitution Act, 1867, as a federal constitutional monarchy, wherein the Canadian Crown acts as the core, or "the most basic building block," of its Westminster-style parliamentary democracy. The Crown is thus the foundation of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Canadian government. Further elements of governance are outlined in the rest of the Canadian constitution, which includes written statutes, court rulings, and unwritten conventions developed over centuries.
  2. The canada was the fundamental unit of liquid volume of the ancient Portuguese Measurement System. It was used in Portugal, Brazil and other parts of the Portuguese Empire until the adoption of the metric system. It was equivalent to 4 quartilhos. The exact value of the canada varied from region to region, the canada of Lisbon being equivalent to 1.4 metric liters.
  3. Canada was a full rigged ship built in 1891 at Kingsport, Nova Scotia on the Minas Basin. She was one of the largest wooden sailing vessels ever built in Canada. Her owner had planned to make her the largest sailing ship built in Canada but damage to a timber intended for the keel caused her length to be trimmed by ten feet making Canada slightly smaller than the ship William D. Lawrence. Thousands of people from Kings and Hants Counties attended the launch. Classed A1 by Lloyd's Register for 14 years, Canada made several fast passages between South America and Australia. However by 1900, the ship was finding cargoes difficult to get in the face of competition from tramp steamers. Canada was converted to a gypsum barge in 1910, carrying gypsum from Windsor, Nova Scotia to Staten Island, New York for the Gypsum Transportation Company of New York. She was towed a final time from New York to Portland, Maine in 1926 where she was broken up.
