How to Spot a Canadian

Tracking down Canadians one toque at a time.

About this Site...

Canadians are a tricky people to distinguish. They are often able to blend into a society and appear to be American, British, French or any other number of nationalities. This site will provide you with some tips and tricks to help you recognize a Canadian no matter where you are.

 

This site is for entertainment purposes only. "How to Spot a Canadian" is filled with humour, satire, hyperbole, parody and sarcasm. All statements here should be taken with a grain of salt or a bottle of maple syrup, whatever the case may be.

Coffee Is Very Serious Business

We've mentioned before how anything Tim Hortons does is treated with great fanfare and attention and that trend continues.

Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons is going to specialty coffee drinks. A coffee shop selling coffee? No big deal, right? WRONG. It is big news in Canada.

How big of a deal is it? The story was discussed on the national news. Not during the business section, not during the life section. No, it was reported during the news segment of the national news. On several networks including CTV and CBC. The Globe & Mail and the Toronto Star gave the story big coverage as well.

This story got so much attention across Canada that you would have thought Celine Dion and Justin Bieber were taking a canoe guided by beavers to a maple syrup factory. Okay... that's pushing the stereotypes a bit. But you get the point.

Also, we're back! =)

    You're a creative one... Did you use spell check before you posted that? I'm curious: Do have thumbs? Maybe your Mom married her Brother and had you? So, thanks for your input! We will take your idea into consideration and get back with you...

    Here's why it's a big deal:
    here in Canada there is so much mediocrity that things done well are a breath of fresh air as the nation opens up like a late-blooming flower. I hate Starbucks - worst coffee anywhere - and then suddenly this inexpensive beautiful brew comes forth at a familiar place once only stalked for donuts. It's a real save!

    Good to know that Canadians hate Starbucks and think it's the worst coffee ever. For that reason, if ever I'm in Canada I'll not be patronizing Tim Hortons. Sounds to me as if Tim Hortons coffee is like making love in a canoe: they're both fucking close to water!

    Importantly to learn about these matters about coffee regarded as a very serious business with its related entities is very much essential in providing core knowledge about these facts.
