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.

Horseshoe Falls, Niagara Falls, Ontario

Niagara Falls is one of our favourite weekend get-away destinations.  Niagara Falls straddle the international border between Ontario, Canada and New York State, USA.   Goat Island and the Horseshoe Falls are on the Canadian side while the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are located on the American side separated from the main falls by Luna Island.  This natural formation is magnificant to enjoy regardless of the weather.  They are the most powerful waterfalls in North America so are a valuable source of hydroelectric power.  Surprisingly while Niagara Falls is gorgeous in the summer months we actually prefer going in the late fall or early winter months.  Niagara Falls, Ontario is the twin city to Niagara Falls, New York.   Niagara Falls, Ontario is a Canadian tourist attraction and the Honeymoon Capital of the World.  There is a wide range of amenities there ranging from restaurants, motes, tourist attractions and a casino.
