I’m Canadian, Eh? 016

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.

Stephanie S. brought back maple cookies from Canada!

The iconic maple creme cookies

Add maple leaves to your list of Canadian foods to eat before you die. That’s right — maple leaves. Picked while green. Pickled and deep-fried. Presented with artisan beets and puffed amaranth bathed in mulled wine vinaigrette. No, this is not a food joke or a headline-grabbing gimmick. It’s quietly happening at Canoe, the much lauded, Canadian-inspired restaurant atop the TD Bank Tower, as part of its Taste Canada series of menus. ~ Toronto Star, October 22, 2014

No Flyers Please ?

“Their excuse is everybody does stuff on the Internet”

Thousands of Canadians will have to walk a little further to get their mail starting Monday as Canada Post begins phasing out door-to-door delivery in some communities. Earlier this year, Canada Post sparked a national outcry when it announced that community mailboxes will replace door-to-door service in 11 communities starting this fall. It marks the first phase of a five-year program that will ultimately affect about 5 million addresses. ~ Canada Post cuts door-to-door delivery in Calgary, Ottawa, Winnipeg, CTV News, October 20, 2014

Algonquin Canoe Trip

Clean get-away?

It’s been said of Canadians that they know how to make love in a canoe without tipping it. If a crime story out of Nova Scotia is any indication, we know how to escape in them, too. A 20-year-old break-and-enter suspect was arrested Wednesday after he took off in a red canoe on the Northwest Arm, according to a Halifax Regional Police news release. ~ Halifax Canoe Escape Still Gets Break-And-Enter Suspect Arrested, Huffington Post Canada, October 29, 2014
