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.

Joannie Rochette Wins Bronze

Joannie Rochette won Bronze! Her performance was outstanding, well beyond expected given that her mother passed away just after arriving in Vancouver to watch Joannie compete. Despite this Joannie with her father watching on went on to win a Bronze medal. Well done Joannie!

Our thoughts and prayers remain with Joannie, her family and community go through this difficult time.


  1. Hi,

    i never heard of Joannie Rochette, only after Alyssa Milano recommended her yesterday in one of her Follow Friday tweets in <a href="http://twitter.com/alyssa_milano>Twitter</a>.

    One of the best stories to talk about from these "deadly" Olympics!

  2. She's the only reason why I watch the Olympics. Her performance is so dramatic and full of emotions.
    Btw, I'm a Canadian Blogger, I mean,I'm not a Canadian (yet) but I'm here in Canada, in Windsor,Ontario. I would appreciate it if you can add my blogs. I author the following.
