According to many Americans (those that know of the existence of Canada anyway), we live in igloos, wear moccasins and eat raw seal meat for lunch.

On purpouse for sure! lol
I'm also from Europe and worse, from a Fine Arts School, some times I feel like walking in the middle of a circus because they wear some horrible, bad taste, old and ugly clothes! lolll


Anyways, I alwats hated to hear bad things about Canada in general. The idea I have from the nation is that they're quite tolerant, friendly and have their heads in the right place, enought to make other nations envy. But I guess only canadians can tell if that's right or not! :P

Whether I go up to Alberta, they often seem to think everyone in British Columbia is Chinese, I don't know whether to cry because that's ignorance or if its true from the perspective of Albertan tourists who probably hang out in Vancouver and go nowhere else in the province.


In British Columbian Stereotypes, which are more or less the same throughout the Pacific North West, we're mainly of tall lumberjack fishermen known for good beer (Portland / Okaganon) and I guess throw in a few hippie streotypes for our cities..

People that think they are all Chinese in BC don't realize David Suzuki and Ian Hanomansing live there so at least two people aren't Chinese.

That's OK because most BCers think Alberia is inhabited by Texans who can't drive on curved roads.

It is but then the weather become unbearable unless you're accustomed to it.


I know I am used to 4C and extreme humidity but most Americans would have a heart attack in those conditions.

Ian Hanomansing is from New Brunswick; he's actually from my home town of Sackville. I actually had his father for my seventh and eighth grade English teacher. Nice people.

That's debatable. Canadians have a reputation for being rather dull. They are like North American Scandinavians, even down to the icy landscapes and weather.
