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.

New Poll Shows Canadians Are Often Tired

A new poll by CBS New has shown that Canadians are often tired.  Now this is not breaking news by any stretch of the imagination.  Canadians have been tired since the advent of electricity that allowed us to stay up past our bedtime watching our 2 channels of television.  Moving forward television moved up to cable and satellite access giving us many more channels to avoid going to sleep.  In addition to television many parents are up in the wee hours of the morning dragging little Johnny to hockey practice.  Who in their right mind feels like skating at 4 AM?  Canadians are tired of their roadways that in between larger communities are so flat and boring that you can't help but drift off.  I'm sure that doesn't help those heading to hockey practice.  For those not into hockey (do they even exist?) there's lacrosse.  Canadians are especially tuckered out thanks to the internet.  Our internet service is so great you can actually clean the entire house waiting for one file to download!  So it is no surprise that more Canadians are reporting they are tired more often than before.  Such is life!
