Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Oh, Canada. Your southern neighbors hardly know ye.

A reporter from the Harvard Crimson asked undergrads to name the capital of Canada and surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), many students couldn't come up with the answer: Ottawa.

Some guessed Vancouver, others ventured Toronto, while still others picked Quebec and Ontario. The only person -- at least the only one included in the video -- to get the answer correct was herself Canadian.
