    Lets see...

    You know you're Canadian if:

    1. When it's -30 outside you only wear a light sweater

    Anyone want to carry on the list?

    Ya, I love that quote (hope you don't mind me using it).

    Okay I found this on the net yesterday.
    You're Canadian if you can understand this sentence:

    "Could you pass me a serviette, I just dropped my poutine, on the chesterfield."

    Does this mean I'm not a CDN? I'm having difficulty with that sentance.

    Please pass a napkin, because you dropped your fries and gravy on the couch?

    That would be the correct translation, although fries with cheese curd and gravy is more exact. :)

    That is so true. Usually in Winnipeg it snows on Halloween but everyone is running around with their jackets undone because it gets so hot when your wearing a costume on top of winter gear. Ahh memories :)

    Snow is like a tradition on Halloween. All the little kids run around soaking wet and I come home with my Jedi robe totally drenched (except I have a really bad robe so I don't care...need to figure out how to make a real one, or buy one)

    19 in BC.

    BC is way too conservative with legal ages. I mean, age of majority = 19? What's up with that!?

    Speaking of bands, "You know you're Canadian if..." you remember Nickelback when they were "one of those local bands who really deserved a break".





    Oh, right!
    *pulls out accordian, joins in again*

    Euston Station the train journey north/
    In the buffet car we lurched back and forth/
    Past odd crooked dykes/
    Through Yorkshire's green fields/
    We were flung into dance/
    As the train jigged and reeled...
