Today is Canada’s 145th Birthday and as always I’m proud to be a Canadian. My favourite beer commercial was the “Average Joe” one advertising Molson Canadian. Do you remember it? I never took it as an rant against other countries just a fun tongue in cheek reference to all the stereotypes of how others in the world see us.
Just before the 2010 Winter Olympics Tom Brokaw (love him!) presented a little piece on Canada which I love – it points out what makes us Canadians but I also feel it shows how much we have in common with our southern and closest ally, the United States of America. Happy Birthday Canada today and Happy Birthday to the USA on July 4th!
Off to the park to wave our flags and eat cake!
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think is the biggest misconception about Canadians? Or what makes you proud to be a Canadian? I think the biggest misconception is that we say “Eh” all the time. I don’t know what they think that eh?
