The mandatory Ontario high school history course spends a LOT of time on Canada’s role in WW1 and the whole “founding of a national identity” thing. And I mean, a LOT.

Locally, Canadian contributions in Korea are also kind of a big deal. I suspect the Maritimes would have their own focus too. (Actually, I know they do because I’ve been to the Maritime Museum in Halifax)

Tim’s merits died when the company was bought out by a US firm. They are not the same. Although the steeped tea is a welcome change from the usual ‘bag in a cup’ nonsense.

I didn’t realise there was a large Ukrainian Canadian presence on Vancouver Island?

No need. Our maple syrup, branded freedom syrup if I’m not mistaken (I am), comes from the land of hippy ice cream, aka Vermont. :wink:

@Dr_Do-Little you’ve been sold out by your fellow countryman. Gird your borders, Murica is coming for your sweet sweet tree blood. :wink:

Even my Vermontian Freedom syrup is partially Canadian. For shame, Wellsley Farms. For shame.

There is something amusing in this American way of expecting a straightforward answer to a straightforward question…

What would they say?
Of course, comrade! Want some vodka? Na Zdorovie!

Looks like Florida Man just went ■■■■■■■■■■■■■ nuts.

A construction worker with anti-government beliefs is accused of fatally stabbing his boss… Alright, with him on the anti-gubmint bit, buuuuut not so much on the jobsite murder thing. That’s usually frowned upon by OSHA among several other agencies.

According to the [arrest] affidavit, Toney [the killer] is very outspoken about his beliefs and has said the government is out to get him. Well, has anyone looked into that, perhaps, the gubmint is ACTUALLY out to get him?

Be all of the above as it may, I’m unsure what the murderer’s anti-gubmint views have to do with him being a ■■■■■■■ KILLER. I mean, I’m pretty anti-gubmint - mostly because it is run by corrupt politicians - but I have absolutely zero desire to harm, much less murder, anyone.

I’ll be honest, I have no idea where my maple syrup comes from, I get it from a bulk store. I am still annoyed that switching away from Grade B labeling raised the price though. I always found it funny that the darker syrup was considered inferior here due to letter grading.
