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.

Welcome Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!

Justin Trudeau was sworn in as the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada today!  I'm looking forward to his leadership in anticipation that we can once again be proud of Canada without fear and paranoia.  May he lead our country in a positive, compasionate and inspiring manner, one that would make his father proud.  After his swearing in ceremony, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the press outside of Rideau Hall.
