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.

Stupid is as Stupid Does

Ok, the last couple of posts have been about the new Florida State requirement for non-residents to have an International Driver's Permit.  Now this is nothing about the price but as a Canadian with Nexus and a Passport and a valid driver's license AND a Canadian owning property in Florida this is horse monkeys!  I'm predicting a royal Florida economy bust along with a lot of pissed off Canadians including ourselves (who will sell our FL vacation home) refusing to visit FL again.  Hey, it was good while it lasted but I won't spend another penny in FL - their loss not mine.  AND I will be very vocal about why we are planning to sell our vacation home in FL and why we will not be going back.  I will blot, Twitter and Facebook this nonsense in the hopes other Canadians do not fall prey to the shady ways of Florida State.  Florida is obviously doing a bit too well to want any Canadian dollars including ours!

I'm calling on all Canadian snowbirds to boycott Florida over this nonsense....
