Compact Facts

Have you ever wondered why there are hard hats hanging from local power lines? Have you looked at the coins in your pocket and wondered why they different shapes and edge designs? Do you know how long you’d have to wait to get a Canadian flag from the Peace Tower in Ottawa?

In our Compact Facts video series, CTV News Vancouver's Peter Bremner will bring you answers to some of the random trivia and thoughts running through his head -- things like what a group of rhinos is called, and what a Zippo lighter cost when it first came to market.

Each Friday we'll have a new Compact Fact that you might not know, or even have thought about before. This page will serve as an archive, so you can catch up on any facts that you’ve missed.
