Well did Jon say "4 countries" at the final pitstop?  :res:

I don't see a problem with that.

Wikipedia defines a "country" as

Quote
A country is a region identified as a distinct entity in political geography. A country may be an independent sovereign state or one that is occupied by another state, as a non-sovereign or formerly sovereign political division, or a geographic region associated with sets of previously independent or differently associated peoples with distinct political characteristics.

So its not out unreasonable to classify Macau and Hong Kong as countries!

So I could say Texas is a country and P.E.I is one too. :)

Hong Kong is an SAR, which is not comparable to Texas or PEI, because they are comparable to Guangdong or Jiangsu.

But before Texas became a state of the US in 1845, it was a sovereign nation (The Republic of Texas, 1836-1845).

Plus, the SAR refers to a closer relationship than that between Scotland and England, for instance.

...your Texas argument is irrelevant because it's a state and does not have the same degree of autonomy as an autonomous republic would...such as the SAR :lol:

Also no SAR-PRC is different to Scotland-England, because Scotland-England share things like democracy and multiparty states,  whereas the SAR-PRC, only one does. Unless you can prove otherwise, I call bs on that too.

Please peruse the definition of the word "country" provided by Wikipedia cited by Leafsfan. I define Texas as a country because it's concordant with the condition "as a non-sovereign or formerly sovereign political division."

Both Canada and the US are federal countries which I reckon every state has some certain autonomy, unlike unitary-government-type nations.

Pertaining to sharing the ethos of democracy, I don't see it in the definition, hence I don't think it has anything to do in defining a country.

P.S. Now the Wikipedia page of The Amazing Race Canada 2 says the number of the countries visited is 3. It's much safer to say in this way I guess.

Just to add some fuel to the fire... they did visit Quebec (Montreal) - maybe Jon was attempting to appease the separatists by counting Quebec as a country.  :stirtp:
