Default How 'Canadian' do you live?

Well, my German car was built in Mexico, and the Swedish truck I drive for work was built in the U.S., but I try to protect and maintain my Canadian-ness.





My composite-construction Meadow acoustic guitar was made in Waterloo, Ontario.

My BlackBerry was developed in Waterloo, Ontario (but made in China).

I have a telephone (invented by Canadian A.G. Bell)

I try to make a point of any Canadian cultural influences, no matter how tangentially they may apply (see above...er, and below).

I recycle, using my Blue Box (an initiative developed in Guelph, Ontario).

While I don't play the game, I do have a basketball (game invented by Canadian J. Naismith).

I know the difference between a cheque and a check.

I know that 'Doctor' and Stompin'' can be used to describe the same person.

I own several Robertson screwdrivers, of different sizes.

I know what a washroom is, and that a bathroom must have a bathtub (or, begrudgingly, at least a shower).

I constantly try to flush out other Canadians.

I'm sorry.*

I know what a 'Salmon Arm Salute' is.

I know what a 'Kenora dinner jacket' is.

I know that real Poutine needs cheese curds, not just cheese.

I don't recognize Justin Bieber as one of my fellow countrymen.

I feel uncomfortable about the "God keep our land" line in the rewrite of our national anthem, and sing it the old way.

I keep an ice-scraper/snow-brush in my car at all times (makes a good back-scratcher).

I am aware of other countries in North America.

Many of my friends and acquaintances are children of immigrants, as am I.

I chuckled at the way the spoken line "I hate Scarberia" appeared in the subtitles as "I hate suburbia" in Orphan Black.

I think of myself as average.

Despite my distaste for Don Cherry, I get a kick out of the way he dresses, and admire the deep love he had for his late wife.

I have a sawed-off hockey-stick in the track of the rear sliding door at my house.

I know someone is more 'Canadian' than me.




How about you? What quintessentially Canadian traits do you exhibit, or have you observed?

(This thread is open to non-Canadians who might have a bit the Spirit of the North in them too, eh?)




*At the moment, most specifically about using the term 'flush out' in such close proximity to the mention of washrooms. Oops.

Oops.

In a fit of braggadocio, I listed only those things that I thought made me more Canadian.

Now, with head hung low, in the interest of fairness and transparency, I present a list of the things that just might, in the eyes of some, make me appear a bit less Canadian.





I don't like hockey.

I don't like beer (in fact, I rarely drink any alcohol).

I don't do 4:20 (possibly a shock to many of you).

I don't like Rush (the band, not the movie or the novel on which it was based). I think Max Webster did the whole 'experimental rock' thing more accessibly, and with greater humour.

I don't ski. I've tried my hand (or, more accurately, my butt) at both cross-country and downhill, but I can't get into it.

I don't skate (I'm not sure if this is in spite of, or because of lessons I took as a kid).

I dislike cold. Vehemently.

I can't build a decent fire (quite an hindrance when viewed in the context of my previous statement).

I haven't fished in about 10 years, and don't plan to.

I tend not to enjoy fireworks displays.

I don't camp just for the sake of camping (music festivals are another matter).

I don't support the monarchy.

I'm vain.

I don't own, nor do I wish to own, a boat.

I don't own, nor do I wish to own, a snowmobile.

My house is not stocked up for emergency power outages or for being snowed in.

I think Quebec has the right to leave if it wants to (but I hope it doesn't).

I don't drive a minivan.




Oh, the shame of it all.

Weigh this list against that in my previous post and decide if I qualify for Canadianism at all.




(Then again, if you're a true Canadian yourself, you're probably not the judgemental type. )

Let's see:

- I think ten years of hockey as a kid qualifies me to pass judgement on professional hockey players and coaches.

- I also played soccer, but that was to keep busy when it wasn't hockey season

- I don't always get Timmies, but when I do I can seldom resist making it a double-double.

- I have tapped maple trees, collected sap, and make token contributions to the boiling down process (granted this was also as a kid).

- I'm originally from Manitoba, one of those provinces that nobody can really take offense about.

- I camp periodically, and have such camping paraphernalia as a proper Coleman stove (none of that new-fangled propane stuff!)

- I listen for the hockey scores on the radio before I get up in the morning, even in June.

- My family tree includes, over the last few generations, English, American, United Empire Loyalists, and non-anglo immigrants, and I married the daughter of immigrants.

- I down-hill, cross-country, and water-ski (and while we never had a cottage, parents had a motor-boat for almost all of my life, so did a lot of water-skiing and boat camping in the Summer)

- I drive a Japanese car that was built in Canada

- I like vinegar on my fries (note for any brits reading this: what you'd call chips)

- I'm familiar with the pleasures of drinking a pop while sitting on the chesterfield

- I know that the holiday we just had is truly known as the May Two-Four weekend

- I regularly use the CBC music site, and have a 3+ hour playlist on there that I use parts of pretty regularly.

- I've been to a cabane a sucre

- I own a parka and serious snow boots


On the other hand:

- I can't drink beer anymore (intolerance)

- I don't hate Toronto or Alberta or Quebec

- I've never owned a jean jacket and have only ever had one flannel shirt (long departed)

- I've never ice-fished, gone hunting, ridden on a dog-sled, or owned a ski-doo (I did ride one once or twice as a kid).

- I don't take winter vacations to warmer parts of the world

- I hate using drive-throughs at fast food places

- I don't really care about what Canadians are in a particular American TV show or movie.

- I'm not a big fan of salt-and-vinegar flavored chips anymore (note for any brits reading this: what you'd call crisps)

I got around to watching Bon Cop/Bad Cop recently. Not exactly high art, but entertaining.

Whenever a conservative American starts going off on a xenophobic rant thinking I agree with him I start using Canadian pronunciations and watch as he or she slowly realizes I'm not who they thought I was.

When I worked in the San Francisco financial district I was pretty sure I was the only person in the very large building who had ever snared a coyote or blown up a beaver dam. Or gone to work in the dark and come home in the dark while working regular hours without any OT. When I moved to California the old Chevy Suburban I brought with me had a block heater, an inline coolant heater, and an auxiliary heater for the rear of the passenger compartment -- but no air conditioning.

Now that's Canadian, real prairie style!

Canadian?

- when my wife offered to buy me snowblower for Christmas, I already knew the specs for the one I wanted.
- there are winter tires on the car from November to April
- the other car, an antique Westfalia, spends the winter in storage
- we got roofracks for the car to haul skis
- I cross to the sunny side of the street when walking downtown in winter
- Stan Rogers is a musical hero - and North West Passage is the ultimate Canadian road trip song.

I'm sure I'll think of more.

I confess I failed at being Canadian. Being Canadian means leaving the house with a sweater, no matter how balmy the morning in September is. Froze my tits off this afternoon!

Though, shivering in September, refusing to acknowledge Fall by wearing a sweater is rather Canadian.

I am wearing 4 layers to account for my commute but also transit warmth/lack thereof.

I’m not sure if the fact that I didn’t watch the Grey Cup makes me more or less Canadian … I mean, I didn’t watch it, right? But on the other hand, how many Canadians like having the CFL around, but don’t really pay it much attention?

Either way, a belated cheer for the RedBlacks for a) winning over the heavily favored Stampeders, and b) deciding that instead of carrying on with the blow-out they started in the first half, they’d let Calgary back into the game to make for a nail-biter that went to overtime. Got to love that generosity, and I’m sure that was what it was, right?

The Grey Cup is the championship of the Canadian Football League - professional football in Canada. It's the Canadian analog of the Super Bowl.

It's called the 'Grey Cup' because it was donated by a former Governor-General, Lord Grey, to recognise the best Canadian football team, way back in 1912. (When our Governors-General were still British appointments, as the British Empire was still in full swing.)

I bought new leather winter boots, and before I exposed them to any salt and slush, took them home and coated their seams and stitching and toes with Dubbin.

Does Dubbin even exist in other countries?

Looks like it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubbin

Personally I tend to use mink oil for the same purposes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mink_oil

I suppose which to use might just come down to what you grew up with?

I'd not seen that before. It is, ummm, different? Not entirely sure whether I like it as an ad or not, but I'll give them credit for trying something a bit out of the usual.

Prefer a slightly more traditional approach? Try this one, featuring one of my favourite sports:
