The Armchair Empire (AE) interviews Nathon Gunn (NG), and here are a few tidbits out of this article:

AE: Whose idea was it to make this game, and why did you choose to focus on Canadian history? to which NG responds The idea began over lunch with Dr. Thomas Axworthy in 1996. Tom had run the CRB Foundation when it created the iconic Canadian Heritage Minutes (one-minute clips about Canadian historical heroes, Alexander Graham Bell (telephone patent), Joe Shuster (created Superman), James Naismith (invented basketball) etc) which popularized history for an entire generation of Canadian youth. Tom’s next question was, “What about games?”. From this moment on we worked hard to build HistoriCanada so that kids would love it and it would break new ground in popularizing history.

Alexander Graham Bell? I knew he was born in the UK and lived most of his life in the US and that he did most of the key work in the US and founded his company in the US. Where does Canada fit in? Did he stop there on vacation once so Canada is trying to claim him? ;)

Funnily enough, I was just reading about Peary's fondness for pubescent Inuits.
