    We have a citizenship class in Ontario. It's called "Civics", and it's a half-credit course with the other half-credit coming from "Careers". Both classes -- at least as they were offered to me -- were complete and utter bull****.

    I've had citizenship classes in middle school (junior high, whatever). It's just a class about different levels and branches of government.
