Not even the Canadians (the Canadians!) know about the geographic north–

A CBC-TV show aimed at testing Canadians’ intelligence is under fire by Whitehorse city officials for its own intellectual lapse about northern geography…

“It was amazing how many people didn’t know where Whitehorse was at all,” she said. “You had to even explain where the Yukon was, which I found a little bit disconcerting.”

Both Karp and Buckway said they are raising CBC’s error because they don’t want to miss any opportunity to educate southerners about the North.
