    I'm with Girlonbike on this one, we need to talk about those pesky geese. It's a goospiracy! They are nothing but a bunch of gooserists sent out to bomb us with their rancid poo! Take 'em back!
    Seriously, why do you call 'em Canada geese when all they seem to do is fly away from Canada?
    It's all Here. Now.

    Great thread.

    Do you have those wooden taps in all your maple trees to collect maple syrup, like do you all have one in your garden?

    Can one of you please tell me the name of the great Canadian show i used to watch as a kid in the early 80s.

    It had native Canadians in it that live in a town in the wild and they where log farmers, it was about their life, times,tribulations and times, i loved it..

    At the start of the show, like in the intro song it had people walking on cut tree trunks that were floating down the river.

    It had one guy with a pony tail, he was native canadian and he was a real nice guy.

    That was one of my fav shows as a kid.

    Have any of you ever ridden a moose, and is it common for people to ride moose like horses over there?

    Do you have lots of beavers there, and do people have them as pets, and would they eat through your house if it was made of wood?

    Ask a Canadian

    In the US, we have breakfast ham slices called Canadian bacon. Our bacon is strips. In Canada, do you call Canadian bacon bacon and refer to the strips of bacon as US bacon?

    Ask a Canadian

    Is it a natural Canadian trait to be feisty, particularly on Internet forums?

    YOUVE GOT IT, great show, thanks judy, i would never have remembered that name.
    I used to love that show as a young kid, the wilderness and the people used to sort of give me a warm feeling when i watched it.
    I remember that from 30 years ago like when i was about 5-7 years old, i dont think i knew where it was from then, and when thinking back on it now i put two n two together and realised it was from canada, id like to see that show again.....

    Beachcombers. Bruno gerussi. Can't believe I remember that after all these years! CBC had some great programming back in the eighties. The kids on Degrassi street, Seeing Things, Raccoons, plus 1980's Don Cherry before he went so over the top that no one takes him serious any more and his dog blue.

    Yeah the littlest hobo was a great show! I think it has skewed me forever to only wanting shepherd dogs as my pets. Currently have a terrier mix but I know the next one will be a shepherd again and I will more than likely name it hobo. Great show, eh!

    Never rode a live moose (but I dd sit on a Mel Lastman moose) ... but I had to eat moose meat as a kid!

    During hunting season. hunters would strap the severed moose head to the hoods of their trucks and drive around town! Not sure if they can still do that but it's one of the reason's for becoming vegetarian /vegan.

    every year i tap the maples... though it is a heck of a lot of work.

    it takes a whack load of sap to boil down to make syrup...

    we call Canadian bacon peameal or back bacon, and normal bacon we call bacon.

    yes, especially in the cold, cold winters. And since it takes spring summer and fall for some of us to thaw out, the feistiness can be permanent.

    Little known fact: some of us Canadians love to be in the wilderness so much we even go camping in the winter, I just did a stint in algonquin park for 4 days last weekend sleeping in a tent in -20C temps (-4F), we camp out by a lake, bring snow shovels and shovel the snow off the lake to go skating all while listening to the howls of the wolves instead of "music". this is actually part of the requirements to gain canadian citizenship for foreigners. and even for those born here, you have to do this once every 5 years or they kick you out. its true.

    Why are the Habs, the Canadiens and not the Canadians?

    Why does Canada's French sound different that France's French?

    Which city in Canada is the city that Canadians consider the most cosmopolitan?

    ^ Seems suspect.. but being from a Canuk, it must be true.



    Do all towns have their own Possum Lodge? _____ (Red Green show was one of my favs.)

    Why do they call strip shows a "Canadian Ballet"?

    Like WV is here, which Canadian providence is the butt of all jokes?

    What's the best approach to persuade a Canadian lass to knock mukluks?

    Do kids there first learn to ride a snowmobile, sled, or a bike?

    Are winter survival skills taught in pre-school, or kindergarten?

    Finally, if Canadians love Canada so, why do 90% of the population live within 10 miles of the US border?

    Yes. Lots of beavers. Can't keep them as pets, they are meaner than moose. I have a friend who has a 65lb beaver in her freezer. It's not wrapped up or anything. They don't eat "wood". They eat shoots, bark & twigs.

    We didn't name them that. James Audobon (an American) did. If you Americans haven't noticed, there are way more Canada Geese that don't migrate anymore. Most provinces have a permanent population of them in the winter. This is something that has developed during my lifetime.

    i will do my best to answer these questions, but they are best left for a francophone.

    Habs is short for Habitants, which translates roughly to "those who live here", what the first french settlers called themselves. Canadien is the french way of spelling canadian.

    Quebecois sounds different because its a throwback to the french that existed when the french settled NA in the 1600's, both branches of the language evolved in their own ways. Joual is what they call their language in Montreal.

    I'd say Montreal is more cosmopolitan (the women smile more and are friendlier, easier to talk to and more confident in their sexuality, and it def has a more continental feel to it, the people there aren't robots and are very passionate, the food is amazing), i'm saying that even tho I'm from toronto and we have the most ethnicities here than in any other city in the world, except maybe new york, however, where the us is a melting pot where people learn english, you'll find neighborhoods in toronto where people don't know much english and speak their native tongues. Toronto does have more ethnic grocery stores than montreal tho.

    take a quote from a Classified song Oh Canada "OH Canada we love our beaver" We even named a pastry (among other things that I can't name here) after it, Beaver tails.

    Yes, it's called "Timmies" in most towns.

    Why do they call strip shows a "Canadian Ballet"?
    What's a strip show?

    Like WV is here, which Canadian providence is the butt of all jokes?
    The one next to the one you live in. It's spelled province.

    What's the best approach to persuade a Canadian lass to knock mukluks?
    "Wanna fvck?" 99 times out of 100 that will get you a slap in the face but if you ask all 200 girls in the bar...

    Do kids there first learn to ride a snowmobile, sled, or a bike?
    Bike. We're born knowing the other two.

    Are winter survival skills taught in pre-school, or kindergarten?
    You wouldn't survive the walk to pre-school if you didn't already know winter survival.

    Finally, if Canadians love Canada so, why do 90% of the population live within 10 miles of the US border?
    Somebody has to keep an eye on the Americans to make sure they don't hurt themselves.

    A whack load = about 100 gallons of sap to one gallon of syrup.

    I've done "sugaring" for many years. From wooden spiggots to metal (using horses & sleds) to plastic pipelines. It's hard work & that's why we charge $35 per gallon for real (not the kind you buy in the store) maple syrup.

    Answers in bold...

    Do all towns have their own Possum Lodge? _____ (Red Green show was one of my favs.)
    hmmm...it may be possible, i'm from the city even though my heart is in the forests, so small town folk regard us cidiots with suspicion and may not allow us to know about their secret societies.

    Why do they call strip shows a "Canadian Ballet"?
    First I've heard that, we're allowed total nudity here, and in quebec there are live (illegal) sex acts on stage if you stay into the wee hours, esp in Gatinaeu: stripper capital of Canada. If you go to to the small towns in canada to strip clubs theres a good chance you can see three generations of stripper on stage in the same night.


    Like WV is here, which Canadian providence is the butt of all jokes?
    Newfoundland, but the people there are hilarious as hell, and really nice, so its totally unfounded. but they are different, thats for sure. Newfoundland was independent until it joined canada in the 40's...it had the biggest per capita of millionaires in NA at the time as well, even more than texas

    What's the best approach to persuade a Canadian lass to knock mukluks?
    In the land of quebec you can actually talk to women about things that don't have to do with how much money you make or what car you drive, so thats prob your best chance, just be yourself and she may take you back to her place to knocking mukluks if she takes a shining to you (unless yourself is a belligerent ass, then go to toronto chances will be better for you)

    Do kids there first learn to ride a snowmobile, sled, or a bike?
    Skate: instead of burping newborns, the doctors put skates on their little tiny feet and send them out on the ice. every maternity ward has a rink

    Are winter survival skills taught in pre-school, or kindergarten?
    in rural areas we have borrowed from the spartans and leave our kids out in the wilderness after they turn one, they learn survival skills on their own from the wolves. city folk are soft and have no clue how to survive in the winter or summer for that matter without a "cottage".

    Finally, if Canadians love Canada so, why do 90% of the population live within 10 miles of the US border?
    because we are cheap bastards and can poach US tv signals for free. (says the guy who doesn't watch tv very often)
    ...a truly skeptical position would be a very uncertain one.

    oh yeah, some towns have several...

    Why do they call strip shows a "Canadian Ballet"?

    that's new to me... we just call them "peelers"

    Like WV is here, which Canadian providence is the butt of all jokes?

    traditionally it's newfies (from newfoundland), also torontonians (from toronto)

    beer and smokes eh!? perhaps even a newfie steak...

    Do kids there first learn to ride a snowmobile, sled, or a bike?

    all the above... me and my lass on a sled (which is a snowmobile)

    the cold kills off the weak ones...

    Finally, if Canadians love Canada so, why do 90% of the population live within 10 miles of the US border?

    Actually, it's 75% live within 100 miles of the US border. What most Canadians would consider "walking distance".
