Is that what Orangeville, Ontario is named after?

Yes, it is.

It certainly was not because they grow oranges there.

Hmm no.

They are not very active or visible anymore. But the attitude and philosophy behind the Order are still found in some parts of the country.

Well, it was truly named for a guy named Orange Lawrence, who was an American guy from New England who lived in the early 1800s.

They don't grow many oranges in New England either, nor in the UK where his ancestors came from.

It's all in some way related to Prince William of Orange, the Battle of the Boyne, the Orange Order...

Chris i'd imagine 99.9% of Canadians have no knowledge or interest in the order of the Orangemen.
