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.

The Royal Wedding

Like many Canadians I was up bright and early to watch as well as tape the royal wedding.  As a former Commonwealth country under monarch rule with still strong overtones of monarchy, the Royal family is of great interest.  It was an absolutely spectacular wedding!  What a wonderful, happy event for the world to be able to share in when there are so many negative things happening.  It was a beautiful distraction for just a short time for what is happening in Canada and the world.  What a lovely couple and we wish them the very best in the years to come.
