“The Canadian identity, it seems, is truly elusive only at home. Beyond the borders Canadians know exactly who they are. Within they see themselves as part of a family, a street, a neighbourhood, a community, a province, a region, and on special occasions – like Canada Day and Grey Cup weekend and, of course, during the Winter Olympics – a country called Canada. Beyond the borders, they pine; within the borders, they more often whine.”
