    Ask a Canadian

    We're very sorry if this thread offends anyone, eh?
    Like, if we can stop shivering long enough, we'll try to answer your questions aboot Canada.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    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.

    yes we do...



    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...

    This sounds like something best left to you guys up there... anything made from 'a whack load of sap' sounds suspect to me...
    It's all Here. Now.
