    Interesting point, really... Now, What district would you see the hospital in ? Government plaza ? Holy Site ? City Center ? Not sure any of those REALLY fits the bill... maybe a specific district like Neighborhood or Aqueduct ?

    Edit: Ninja'd ;-)

    City centre, of course. That is what I had imagined anyway. Seems like an essential building that shouldn't be contingent of districts. And City centre really does "fit the bill" for this.

    If anyone's interested the Canadian Encyclopedia has a pretty well-rounded page on Wilfrid Laurier, the possible leader of a possible Canadian Civ. It describes his pros and cons as Prime Minister and could provide a clue to the leader bonus Firaxis might go for.

    With all this talk of Canadiana, I'm surprised I haven't heard from @God of Kings on what he thinks about it.

    I felt that the city center was starting to get crowded, and a hospital would just add to that.
    I guess a neighborhood could work as well or a revamped health district that would include the aqueduct.

    For Laurier, I envision an immigration mechanic... perhaps draw population from other civilizations or cities based upon loyalty or trade. There was a huge movement of people to Canada during his tenure as PM.

    I also seem to recall one notable success was a reciprocity trade agreement with the US... perhaps some sort of free trade benefit might be in order. Don't know what form that would take though.

    If there is a new scout between scout and ranger, I suppose the Mountie might take that slot... or even be a ranger replacement... but I really do not like the Mountie as a UU as they were more policeman than anything (although they did participate in combat in a couple of rebellions (using gatling guns and cannon as well as rifles)).

    Will dams create lakes? Does anyone recall a screenshot showing a lake behind a dam?

    Yeah, it sort of floods the rest of the tile.

    Neighborhood could work, or a whole new district.

    Good point - we should draw a veil over them too.

    But let's not forget Canada's true contribution to world music.

    There's no health mechanic, so a hospital wouldn't serve any particular purpose. Except as another source of housing or amenities, for which there is no particular need.

    True, but it still would seem odd to not have that as a building. Seems so obvious to have it.

    So this thread is about Canada now?

    They would not be environmentalist considering how horrible they are with carbon emissions and tar sands, etc. Would also be kinda boring...

    Just make them a variant of the US ;)

    I'm actually not familiar with Metric, but Arcade Fire is awesome.

    Canada/Australia, the two civs created to please a specific player base with no regard to the general quality of the game. The game really shines in the first 2/3 part making late civs redundant.
