So two per province, without Googling, with those qualifications.
You just upped the table stakes of this little poker game.

I thought it was a social disease you got at exclusive country clubs, but it seems I was wrong.

There is no Whiteknife or Yellowhorse in Canada, but there is the capital city Whitehorse in Yukon and capital city Yellowknife in Northwest Territitories.

It was deliberate. I have known since my days of reading Jack London novels, in the late 1960's, what the capitals of Yukon and Northwest Territories are.

Ah, thank you. I thought it was just the lewd wanderings of my senior mind. But glad you have confirmed that, indeed, that is not all that goes wandering in the Golden Years.

Take heart fellow senior. We were golfing with a group of seniors from "The Villages" and almost to a man, they were now back to carrying condoms in their wallets.

That old axiom of a "second child-hood" is seemingly true for at least one select group I guess.

Millennials will probably be cringing in their chairs while reading these last couple of posts.

I hate hockey (am using the world 'hate' here)! LOVE baseball though and am a die-hard Blue Jays fan - always have been. Naming a city that hosts a major league baseball team in Canada is easy.

Medicine Hat, sure, but you selected Peace River for Alberta over Lethbridge and Red Deer? Gosh, you do know your stuff!

And for PEI, you could use Summerside or Cavendish, in addition to Charlottetown.
