    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...

    I'm looking forward to the Olympics.

    I don't know whether the same resources were put in this time compared to the "Own The Podium" program when we hosted four years ago. We have some highly placed athletes in world championships and world cup series in several sports. And hockey is still our game. Here's hoping...

    I was born and raised in Canada

    but will never admit to being "proud" to be Canadian. I have zero interest in hockey, Molson beer is ridiculously overpriced and aimed at people who care more about the label than the taste. I speak a little French and think The Tragically Hip are just okay. I am not proud...

    Being Canadian

    This is a vast land, full of contrasts and contradictions. Sometimes it is hard to define what it is to be Canadian, although I think most of us are proud that we are. Even moreso, we are proud of what we are not. There are a lot of upsides to living in Canada. Here, our...

    Yes, Born in Regina, raised in Toronto,

    lived in Ontario, BC, Saskatchewan and now Alberta. Love the country and always will...but the winters, they suck. I guess there is no place that is perfect, so I will just grumble and complain through each winter.

    Canada's Cool

    I was born and raised in the Lower Mainland. Although I've travelled to a few places in Europe and Asia, there's no other place in the world I'd rather live than in Vancouver. Where else do you have the natural beauty of the water, mountains, forest and the city within a short...

    The only thing I dislike about this statement is

    that it reminds me of a Molson commercial. And Molson is bloody awful stuff. Everything else is wonderful. And a lot more of the stereotypes we Canadians tend to think of as nonsense do ring true. Yes, maple syrup really does belong on anything and everything. Yes, I do...

    I Am Lucky To Have Been Born In Canada...

    I love being Canadian. I have the Maple Leaf tattooed on the back of my neck, I cherish hockey, but most importantly, I love being Canadian because we seem to be so neutral as a nation. I like the fact that we are not "bullies" on the global front. We will defend, and have...

    I wasn't born in Canada

    but I've been here since I was seven years old (that makes it 26 years that I've been here). I love this country as if I was born here. Love where I grew up and love where I live now. Would not change it for anything and everyday I thank my parents for bringing me here.

    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...

    It's not the Universal Health Care, it's not the Government (God no!), it's not even the hockey, beer, Tim Hortons, snow or maple syrup. I love this country because of the way the world views Canadians. I'm pretty sure you have never heard anyone say "I hate those frickin...
