Happy Canada Day!

1 July 2010

For Canada Day I wanted to post my favourite Canadian short film ever – The Sweater by Sheldon Cohen. It’s based on the story by Roch Carrier (who narrates with the most awesome Quebecois accent ever). It’s so popular among both Anglo and Franco-Canadians that they printed an excerpt on our $5 Bill.

I just feel that it really helps to understand what Canada “is” because we’re so often defined by what we’re not.

Quite frankly, we make Constitutional Monarchy look pretty sexy.

And here is some Stan Rogers. Because he’s awesome.

PS: Go Leafs Go!
