Canada and tulips[edit]

"The nation was liberated largely by Canadian troops and to thank them each year thousands of Tulip bulbs are sent to Ottawa where the annual May Tulip Festival is held."

This statement is incorrect. Tulpis are sent to Ottawa each year not because Canadain troops liberated the Netherlands but because Canada shelterred the Danish Queen Juliana during WWII. In fact her daughter, Margriet Francisca, was born in Ottawa during the war, but the maternity wing of the hospital was tempoarily declared dutch territory so that the princess would be ellilgible to ascend the throne.

You mean the Dutch Queen, I hope? (Who was, at the time, still a princess, and is no longer alive)
Mistaken nationalities not withstanding, the statement IS incorrect, so I removed it. I'm not sure if it were the Canadians who largely liberated the Netherlands, so that part can stay. It would be nice if someone could verify it, though. Lunapuella 12:30, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
The Dutch wikipedia at least says that it was Charles Foulkes, a Canadian General, who negotiated the capitulation. I added this information to the article. esmi 13:11, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
