    I never went "eh" in my life.

    What, is "hey" too much for you? Sigh Another thing I'm ashamed of: ******* rock paper scissors championships. Yeah, that's right. Americans may be stupid when it comes to politics, but Canadians are stupid for making rock paper scissors into a ******* "world championship" event...

    My parents moved from Seattle to Vancouver

    because my mom wanted to raise kids away from all the bigoted religious nuts they encountered on a daily basis. Sure, you can't avoid them completely, but America is packed with them.

    Our nation's capital,

    mere hours away, was the scene of violence today. I was working in Michigan on 9/11, and all I could think of was getting back home to where things like this didn't happen. Sadly, as a country envied by a lot of the world, we have joined the ranks where this occurs. Fear is...

    I have been many places around the globe.

    Every time I return home, I am so much more appreciative of how free, progressive and tolerant Canada is. I am so glad I was born here. And I am so glad I am able to appreciate it.

    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...

    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...
