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.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes - Apology to America

I'm sorry but most Canadians do spend a good portion of their day apologizing. Canada is home to many comedians and even if they no longer live in Canada they don't hesitate to use that wonderful Canadian humour we are so proud of. Comedy shows are on Canadian television channels daily so there is no reason not to have a good chuckle. Here is a great video from This Hour Has 22 Minutes to give you a chuckle.
