What is Stratford?

What is Stratford?
Stratford Jeopardy!
Watch three contestants draw blanks in the Canada category on Jeopardy!

All five questions including “The swan is a symbol of this Ontario city. Each year, white and black swans are released into the Avon River,” were answered incorrectly.

Ok the Stratford question was a bit tough, and his wrong answer “Edmonton” cost him $5,400.

But what about this lob ball “Residents of this Saskatchewan city are called Moose Javians.”

The contestant’s reply? Winnipeg.

Does this guy realize you get points deducted for a wrong answer?

Here are the three other questions about “Canadian Cities”:

An intersection in this provincial capital is the original western terminus of the Trans-Canada Highway. (Answer: Victoria.)

This Alberta resort was the first municipality to be incorporated within a Canadian national park. (Answer: Banff)

In 1992, this city’s velodrome, once used in the Olympic games, was transformed into an environmental bio-dome. (Answer: Montreal)
