You guys get an ice hockey rink as your unique building?

...Is that an insult, a compliment or a simple acknowledgement of reality?

Scotland got stuck with golf courses, of all things, so it's expected. :pac Some civs are inevitably gonna be drawing from the shallower end of the historical pool in terms of buildings and improvements, especially colonial or semi-modern civilizations.

Like, the only other thing that comes to mind would be the "Diefenbunker," and I'm okay not getting those if it also means getting a better leader than Diefenbaker, even if that portmanteau is delicious.

e: full deets

It's cool (heh) to have a civ that can make that tundra do some work, seems a solid turtley civ all around. Mounties creating national parks seems amusing to me.

I love that Mountie feature because National Parks normally require the use of a Naturalist, which are always pretty expensive and can only be purchased with Faith, for whatever raisin.

A Mountie by contrast should be more-or-less the same normal production time/cost as any other light cav, and purchasable with normal Gold, so probably way more manageable for non-religious players by the time they become available. It'll be even better if they unlock before Naturalists, too.

Canadian National Parks also giving defensive adjacency buffs is pretty sweet considering they're four-tiles large.

Why isn't the leader Mackenzie King's ghost dogs? Boycotting.

So there's 2 left to reveal, right? Or 3?

I'm hoping the Ottomans/Turkey get a nod, I know they've been in most past titles but it'd still be a bit odd to completely leave them out.

Canada is the third of eight new Civ reveals, I think. Plus there'll be a ninth new leader for an existing Civ, if the leak is accurate, which so far it has been for everything else.
Spoiler :
Ottomans are indeed on the list if I remember correctly, with Suleiman returning again as their leader.

I have to say, all these changes are making me want to give Civ 6 another go.

I'm disappointed that the Mounties don't have the Shawinigan Handshake as their special ability.

Our unique ability giving us immunity to surprise wars should also be nullified if a pie to the face is involved.
