I’m Canadian, Eh? 014

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.


Cause We’re Sorry

As Ian and Will Ferguson theorized in How To Be A Canadian (Even If You Already Are One), there are in fact twelve Canadian sorries: simple, essential, occupational, subservient, aristocratic, demonstrative, libidinous, ostentatious, mythical, unrepentant, sympathetic and authentic. – National Post, June 27, 2014

Old bottles

A Sign of the Times

TORONTO – A summer marketing campaign run by Coors Light Canada forced the closure of a major Toronto intersection during rush hour on Monday. Streetcars were diverted and police were called after a briefcase was found attached to a metal railing (at Spadina Ave. and Dundas St. West). It turned out the briefcase was part of a month-long challenge to find prizes using an online map and through clues from Twitter. ~ Huffington Post July 8, 2014

old bus

That will be $100

Singing an impromptu ditty on a Winnipeg bus could land you a $100 fine. The city’s executive policy committee approved a new transit bylaw on Wednesday that makes singing on a Winnipeg Transit bus a ticketable offence. The rule came as part of a larger transit bylaw that makes it against the law not to pay your bus fare and establishes an array of “inappropriate conduct” for which someone can be kicked off a bus or fined. ~ CBC News June 9, 2014

  1. I totally agree with this statement:”Our environment, our experiences, and the people we choose to surround us shapes us into who we are”. People are affected a lot from the external events they face everyday. It is a good thing to surround yourself with the precious heritage of your nations. Love this post ❤
