Ever since I can remember I've heard the comment that there is "no difference" between Canadians and Americans. I respectfully beg to differ as there is a difference on so many levels! We have unique Canadian culture consisting of Canadianisms, a Canadian perspective on world events, Canadian cuisine as well as products and foods only available in Canada. This blog is dedicated to celebrating all things Canadian from "my perspective" as a Canadian. Please enjoy your visit and be sure to visit often.

Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.

The Cabin

The Cabin
November 10, 2008

Smaller rustic cabins are scattered throughout rural areas in Ontario. These are often used for three seasons of the year but some are used year round. These cabins are generally passed down from generation to generation. Quite often the cabins are set on lakes or streams in rather remote locations. The pictured cabin in Northern Ontario is owned by a good friend of ours.
