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.

YouTube Interview with Prime Minister Harper / Entrevue YouTube avec le Premier ministre Harper

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has embraced social media by taking his message to YouTube in a recent interview airing March 16, 2010. The video is quite lengthy (a little over 40 minutes) but is included in its entirety below. You can read comments on the video here. This really is a first for a Canadian Prime Minister. It is nice to see that our elected leaders are taking advantage of social media.
