    Canadian, Eh?

    When I lived overseas, I remember people asking me on a daily basis, 'where are you from?'. I always proudly answered 'Canada" to which they would ask 'So you live in an igloo and wear parkas?' SERIOUSLY??? I am always astonished at how little people from other countries know...

    FOX Airs Program Mocking and Slandering Canadian Soldiers In Afghanistan.

      At a time when we are bringing home our fallen soldiers on the Highway of Heros - men and women who gave their lives in an American-led War on Terrorism - Fox Network aired a program which I think was called "Red Eye", in which a group of people sat around laughing and...
