Happy Canada Day… Interesting facts about Canada (that I found somewhere else)

So tomorrow is Canada Day, the Confederation will have another year and it’s still surviving… Even if the Bloc wants to break it apart!


But politics aside, it’s an interesting moment to learn a few facts about Canada. I invite you to go take a look at XUP’s post about 10 + 10 facts about Canada.

By the way… what represents Canada the best? Tim Hortons or the BlackBerry?

Some argie immigrant from Montreal wrote a very nice text (in french) about how to make a BBQ… “Argie Style”

Looks strange... But I swear it tastes great!

About “Mate” or “that green weed I drink at the office”

I love Mate. It’s a very nice drink and, moreover, it’s healthy. It’s similar to tea if you want, but you do not drink it like tea. You use… a “Mate”, like this…

My Mate

My Mate

Yes… it’s green, comes in small leaves and you use a strange device with it… But it’s not that thing… it’s Yerba Mate… And you can buy it at the Latin Store @ Montreal St. for just 6 CAD a kilo.

You can read a very good post about mate at Interesting Thing of the Day.

That thing that I cannot accomplish here…
