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.

Canadians in general love to poke fun at other Canadians and why not because a good sense of humour is a Canadian tradition.  Heck when our land is covered with snow a good portion of the year a sense of humour goes a long ways to making life pleasant.  Poking a bit of fun at other Canadians is more than acceptable but poking fun at Canadian politician, well now, that is a must do.  Keeping the Canadian constituents happy is why our politicians are so gracious in providing ample opportunity for us to poke fun at them.  It's the Canadian way.  Here is a recent clip from my favourite Canadian funny man, Rick Mercer.  Enjoy!
