Crossing Canada: Exploring the Great North From Coast To Coast

This Barrie 360 feature is brought to you by Canadian Tire.

Being Canadian is more than just an address; it’s a state of mind, a cultural melting pot, and an excuse to say “sorry” even when it’s not your fault.

We know that our strength lies in our differences, and we proudly celebrate our multicultural heritage. Whether you’re eating bannock bread, munching on butter tarts, or enjoying some butter chicken, being Canadian means appreciating the fusion of flavors, languages, and traditions that make up this great land.

Being Canadian also means having a remarkable knack for friendliness. 

Whether it’s holding doors open for strangers or saying “thank you” to the bus driver, we’re all about spreading kindness like butter on warm pancakes. 

If you find yourself lost in a Canadian city, don’t worry! Just ask a friendly local for directions, and they’ll probably give you a detailed roadmap, a list of their favorite local spots, and a heartfelt invitation to their cottage.

And, then there’s our love of saying “Sorry!” We’re the kind of folks who apologize when someone else steps on our foot. It may as well be our national tagline. 

(Sorry, this is getting kind of long …)

We love to talk about the weather. Almost as much as we love talking about hockey. It’s a sport that unites us, ignites our competitive spirit, and gives us an excuse to enjoy an endless supply of brewskies and double-doubles. 

In a nutshell, being Canadian means being part of a nation that cherishes diversity, embraces kindness, and worships a cold arena.

So, grab your toque, sip on some maple syrup, and join us on this epic adventure of being unabashedly and unapologetically Canadian!
