The Canada Series

The government spends an inordinate amount of money trying to create a uniquely Canadian culture.  However government sponsored productions are typically about snow farming on the prairies of some other obscure sub-culture unfamiliar to the 90% of Canadians who live along the US border.  While the real differences between Canadians and Americans are quite subtle that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be celebrated.  The following is my ode to all things Canadian.
