Yep, maple leafs and hockey and beer
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 4:59:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
unfortunately, I think we have a national stereotype instead.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:04:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with raine. I really do not see what maple leafs, hockey, beer, snow, etc. have to do with Canada in general. Obviously, Canada is much more than just that. They are just mere stereotypes.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:07:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Does any country have a antional Identity? Isn't it all stereotypes?
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:15:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never been there, but from what I've heard it sounds allot like what Kiki said, but I'm not absolutely positive.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:17:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah they have alot of snow and hockey players and Polar bears
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:17:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
D_A - You couldn't be more wrong.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:18:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
ha, my best pal and I were talking about this very subject just today...and we decided that NO, canada does not. It's America, Jr.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:22:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
no it's the other way around, canada is just canada.America is, Canada Jr.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:40:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
D_A - You couldn't be more wrong.

But I'm not the one who said it, Kiki was...

18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:48:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
D_A - Oh fine. Blame it on Kiki, will ya?
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 5:50:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
^^^ LOL
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 6:11:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Canada is bigger than America so I don't see how it's "junior."
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 8:24:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Or America can be called "Canada's shoes"
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 8:25:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Aren't most national identities really just stereotypes anyway?
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 8:35:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Canada is multi-cultural, we celebrate our diversity, well, at least we're suppose to
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 8:36:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
o, and the maple leafs are not canada's team, they're just shoved down all our throats, well, at least that's how it feels out west
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 8:38:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
well, to answer this question, one must clearly define "identity"... no but seriously, i dont think any country has one. if hockey, beer, and the Maple Leafs are our identity then the US' is useless gun laws, conservative christians, the Yankees and war-happy presidents.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 9:06:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
that was supposed to prove that those countries don't have those identities? I think it did a good job of the opposite.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 9:23:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
haha, no, im saying that those are stereotypes. as far as i know, everywhere but new york hates the yankees.

Canada is no more multi-cultured than the USA is. Canada's identity seems to be that they are not Americans though they try to copy everything American. Canadians are very proud of the people who make it big in the States. Two examples being Celine Dionne and Shania Twain.

Great Strip Joints.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/21/04 - 6:14:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know they have alot of hockey players and polar bears and backbacon
They could put backbacon on their flag
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/21/04 - 6:21:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
We don't need a national identity. We are just like Americans except we have cleaner cities and less crime.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/21/04 - 6:56:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
But there's nothing to do there
