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.

Do you know where your food comes from? - Eat Real. Eat Local.

We are huge foodies here so eating local and supporting local farmers makes a lot of sense to us.  We try to eat as much as possible within a 100 km radius of our home.  Surprisingly in our little corner of Canada that is quite possible.  Canada produces some of the finest foods there are so there is no excuse to not support local Canadian growers.  Here is a short video clip I found to reiterate that very ideal!
