  • The famous lyrics of the Blame Canada song from the 1999 South Park movie state clearly the differences between Americans and Canadians: “Blame Canada! It seems that everything's gone wrong, since Canada came along. Blame Canada! Blame Canada! They're not even a real country anyway.”

Understanding canadian culture

  • Multi-Cultural. It's probably the second most used word to describe Canadian Culture after hockey. We often like to describe Canadian culture that way.

  • A mosaic of people from all backgrounds making up our society. I wonder to what extent this is true. How much is Canadian Culture really shaped by those who immigrate here.

  • Why do Canadians feel so smug and superior to our American neighbours?

  • "Canada" is just a watered down, more socialist version of America. It's culture consists of trying not to be America. Everyone likes Canada because it's inoffensive - like mild cheddar. Nobody loves it, but everyone can eat it. I'd rather be exotic brie or zesty blue cheese. Canada needs a good war to define itself. Until then, it's a nothing country and deep down most Canadians know it.
