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.

Sarnia, Ontario is home to Chemical Valley named after the large number of industrial petro-chemical plants on the south side of the city.  Sarnia is a border city on the St. Clair River just at the mouth of Lake Huron across from Port Huron, Michigan.  A major highway artery (Hwy. 402) connects Sarnia to London, Ontario allowing the easy transport of goods from the US and southern regions of Ontario to the Greater Toronto Area and eastern Canada.
