Beer, Hockey & Lumberjacks - Happy Canada Day!

July 1st is Canada Day here in the true north strong and free. Formerly known as Dominion Day, it's the day Canadians kick back, take a day off from their jobs as lumberjacks, have a beer, barbeque a slab of Alberta beef and play hockey (or the summer equivalent Lacrosse) - you guessed it - it's the day Canadians get to be Canadians. 

Canadian Please is a video about what it means to be a Canadian - and it's not a coffee and donut shop, or a beer commercial. 

Star fleet Commander Canadian William Shatner (aka Captain James T. Kirk) spoofs the famous My Name is Joe and I'm a Canadian commercial. My favourite line is when Shatner says: "I speak English & French, not Klignon."  

And yes, no tribute to Canadian culture would be complete without a beer commercial presenting us as hockey playing, railroad building, beer drinking lumberjacks! 

Oh Canada! You're still rocking it sista after 143 years - we stand on guard for thee! 


Happy Birthday Canada--you couldn't have a better birthday you share it with my hubby. And I'm proud to say some of my best friends Are Canadians.

Thanks Stina, I love the William Shatner one as well, he's funny when he's making fun of himself.
