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.

Earth Day 2010


Today we celebrate Earth Day 2010, a day to bring awareness of environmental issues and living in an eco-friendly manner.  Teachers across Canada will be instructing students on the importance of an eco-friendly lifestyle.  Some schools will hold special tree planting ceremonies while many communities are holding clean-up events and tree planting.  Canadians across the country will join this wonderful celebration of Mother Earth.  Please join us as we celebrate Earth Day 2010!
