Invented in Massachusetts, by Dr. James Naismith; who happens to be Canadian. They used peach baskets which didn't have a hole in the bottom. Requiring a man to climb a ladder and retrieve the ball after every basket.
3. The Snow Blower
The man credited with this invention was named Arthur Sicard. It all started in Quebec, so, it's shocking that it actually worked without complaining constantly.
4. The Caulking Gun
5. The Egg Carton
The egg carton was invented in 1911, in British Columbia. Seeing as it comes from B.C, I assume it was initially meant to carry cocaine.
6. The Garbage Bag
Credited to Harry Wasylyk. A man from my home town of Winnipeg! Unfortunately that leads me to believe he invented it to dispose of a body. We can gloss over that though.
