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.

RMR: Longism

In recent Canadian news the focus has been the long gun registry and the long census form.  Once again Rick Mercer turns politics into a bit of humour.  He really is a national treasure! It looks like the entire showing would have been a good laugh from all the video clips.  Unfortunately I did not get to see it.  At any rate, in his ultimate way of explaining all things pertaining to Canadian politics, here is his take on the Conservative Longism.  Enjoy!
