Ok I'm playing regularly again. I just won a game as Canada in the newest version - a diplomatic victory. The only victory type I hadn't won. It was quite a surprise actually because AI was vicious in taking away 3 points from me, I thought I'd never make it but a series of fortunate events and aid work and some competitions made me win it I guess. It also helps that there are wonders and techs that give you diplomatic points.
I find Canada to be a really good civilization now, it's good for peaceful, builder type playing styles.
My favourite civ still remains Russia simply because I love expanding like crazy and gobbling up that territory.
Yeah, I like Canaduh now too, it also suits my playing style. Inca and Cree are still my favourites though... but I probably have a cultural bias because of my native ancestry
