I’m Canadian, Eh? 012

Random photos and thoughts about Canada.

Our environment, our experiences, and the people we choose to surround us shapes us into who we are. In this series I search the web for thought-provoking images about Canada, the country I grew up in.


Canadian food culture.

Rarely do you hear people sigh over Canadian food the way they do, say, over Italian or French fare. So let’s just call the distinctive seafood, piquant cheeses and off-the-vine fruits and veggies our little secret. Ditto for the bold reds and crisp whites the country’s vine-striped valleys grow. Canada is a local food smorgasbord. If you grazed from east to west across the country, you’d fill your plate like this: lobster with a dab of melted butter in the Atlantic provinces, poutine (golden fries soaked in gravy and cheese curds) in Québec, a bulging slice of berry pie in the Prairies and wild salmon and velvety scallops in British Columbia. – Lonely Planet


There’s no such thing as a secret world of bears.

Even as the dollar figure soared, that arm stayed fixed, raised in a gesture that told competing bidders: back off. Xu, who moved to Vancouver from Beijing several years ago, went on to capture lot No. 19002. The price: $8,400. He spent thousands more on a second polar bear hide and a timber wolf skin. “Polar bear is a rare animal,” Jason, translating for his father, later told Maclean’s. “Not a lot of other places sell them—only Canada.” – Maclean’s, February 16, 2012

Guerrilla Art. Selling out?

Is it art? Vandalism? Advertising? Brandalism? For the buzz-generating graffiti stuntman Dan Bergeron—a.k.a. Fauxreel—the distinctions don’t matter. He’s just glad he made you look. Toronto Life
