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.

Rick Mercer's Sleepover with Stephen Harper

Canadians have a wonderful sense of humour. Not only do we like to poke a bit of good humoured fun at ourselves we like to poke do the same at our elected officials and public figures. No one does this better than Canada's favourite funny man, Rick Mercer. Rick had the opportunity for a sleep over at 24 Sussex Drive and shared the highlights in this funny clip from the Rick Mercer Report! Enjoy :)
