British guy goes to Canada, does lot of Canada stuff (video)

A British guy decided to go to Canada and chronicle himself doing lots of authentically Canadian things, most of which are also authentically American things.

Though there’s always the chance we stole some of it from Canada, as we routinely do with their actors and singers, which we call our own :)


Of course, rather than considering it stealing Canada’s culture, we prefer to think of it as liberating it.

(That’s actually a Crimea joke, rather than an anti-Canada joke, just fyi.)

    I can identify with the shock of driving on a lake. Our first winter in Minnesota, my husband too me for a drive on a lake. I was scared to death. His parents had a fishing hut, and he wanted me to see it.

    Looks like he never left Ontario, although to his credit, he seems to have flown to Moosonee on James Bay. The 700 km drive from Toronto north to the 49th parallel on the Trans Canada HIghway wouldn’t have been very much fun for someone from the UK (London to Edinburgh is slightly shorter). It’s not the end of the Earth but you can definitely see it from there! 49°00′00″N 81°00′36″W
