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.

Snow Day

Southern Ontario is still cleaning up after the recent rather horrid snowstorm.  This time the weather predictions were quite accurate however, as Rick Mercer points out, the weather coverage is much to be desired.  Seriously, they over react as if they are on some type of reality show that is far from real!  Some of the weather coverage has become fear mongering to the point folks fearing the worst make a special trip to the store to stock up because 'they may get snowed in'.  We live in Canada.  Snow and snowstorms are normal for winter, so everyone who lives here should be prepared to deal with a snowstorm.  We don't need the drama in weather reporting!
