    Hudson Bay Company could give extra amenities from furs or perhaps extra trade routes from furs.

    I suggested a French-Canadian Civ on "Design your own Civ" thread a few days ago, I'll carry it around on my sig for a few days

    Unique Building "Sugar Shack" refers to Canadian reliance on the wood industry from the Napoleonic Wars and beyond, Canadian food surplus, the simplicity of Canadian culture, and maple syrup

    Maybe a unique tile improvement that gives +2 gold for each adjacent camp and +1 production for each adjacent lumbermill.

    That would cover both trappers and lumberjacks, two of the most iconic professions of early Canada.

    The problem with that is there's not really any improvements like that in Canada. The closest would be like an old fort/stockade, which was used as both military defense and for the fur trade. I guess giving it increased yields for forests or camps could work. But I don't know if it really has any sort of interesting name to it, and to be fair, that would be a pretty horrible UI. I think it works better as a civ's UA, to just give increased yields to camps and lumbermills directly, if you're going down that route.

    UU we're really stretching. Mounties are a police force, not a military unit. Honestly, given our somewhat lack of military history, I really wouldn't mind if they gave us a UU that was non-military. Maybe a unique trader unit (Voyageurs) that has increased yields when travelling along rivers?

    Surprise: Canada has no UU, but a UB and a UI. Another civs get 2 UUs.

    Given that Scotland has the Golf Course, I basically have no faith that Firaxis won't make Canada just as hellishly stereotypical.

    Prove me wrong, Firaxis! Prove me wrong.

    I could see them giving us the "unique governor" as our unique unit.

    Mounties would be a terrible UU. The Mountie Fort, though, could be a good UI. We don't have a unique fort yet, I don't think? It would be a way to throw some love to an under utilized game mechanic.

    Funny to say lack of military history when Canadian identity started with the military. See War of 1812, WWI, etc. I'd argue it was our military that first turned us from English and French to Canadians.

    At this point thats a possibility but I still think the mountie is coming with a hockey arena with something along the lines of the ability I mentioned above.

    Yes, a Trading Post (+pop/gold) that gains bonuses from Forest/Luxuries. Seems quite appropriate. If a bit similar to the local Mekewap.

    I think Ottomans having Bey as a unique governor makes more sense.

    In Canada is a city called Sudbury. It sits on one of the largest iron deposits in the world. In the 1960s the city was so barren that NASA trained its moon bound astronauts in the area. By the 90s it was winning UN environment awards for the massive reclaimination. Theyve even planted rolling fields of grass on the slag pile in the recent years. Point being its not all doom and gloom in Canada when it comes to polution.

    I think that it could be an armored unit possibly if they find a way to make it work. Canada produced a significant amount of armored vehicles during World War II, so they could create a Sherman variant or a British tank variant. Alternately they could get a Destroyer since they produced their own class. WWII is a decent inspirational place for Canadian unique units, so I hope they go there instead.

    EDIT: Just read that Wilfried Laurier actually proposed a separate Canadian Naval Force and introduced a bill creating the Royal Canadian Navy so take that as you will...perhaps they do get a destroyer UU or something.

    And the town of Asbestos, where the residents chose to keep the apropriate name, even after the clean-up.

    I would really expect the Unique Governor to be Axel Oxenstierna for Christina's Sweden. They could have Christina be like 16-17 years old, she ascended the throne at age 6.

    That's why I was thinking of a Skirmisher replacement that does exploring and has some kind of resource-gathering/trading mechanic.

    As a non-chopper and Empire builder, I would like to oppose the second part of this statement.

    Unless it was meant as a joke that flew over my head. If it's the case, somebody tell me, so I can feel a bit embarrased :crazyeye:

    It was a joke. If we're going to be stereotypical about Canada, we can be stereotypical about Civ players, too, right? :lol:

    Yes, yes, yes! They're making so many nice little QOL changes, this would be a great on to add to the list.

    If I weren't on my phone, I'd find the Monty Python lumberjack song to post here....

    I'm guessing the Inca will get a skirmisher replacement UU, although Canada would not be a bad choice, either.
