‘Strange Brew’ and ‘SCTV’ Hosers Bob & Doug McKenzie Immortalized As Statues in Edmonton, Canada

Canada is known for giving us maple syrup and Ryan Reynolds, not to mention their undying love for hockey and inexplicably endless politeness. But when I think of Canada, there are two lovable hosers that come to mind, and that’s beer-chugging, hockey-loving brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie, played by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis in both the Canadian sketch comedy series SCTV (or Second City Television) and the cult classic comedy feature film Strange Brew. Now the knuckleheads from the Great Whi...

Meghan Markle Has Returned to Canada After Surprising Instagram Announcement

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has returned to Canada following her and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex’s announcement that they are planning to step back as “senior members” of Britain’s royal family. As the shock waves created by their Wednesday Instagram announcement continue to reverberate, Meghan Markle has made the return trip across the pond to be with her and Harry’s 8-month-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who remained in Canada with Markle’s close friend, Jessica Mulroney, ac...

Are There Benefits to Attending French Universities in Canada?

by  Aliyyah Nazeem Many people who are hoping to move to Canada begin by improving their English-language skills. That is because you have to pass an English exam to immigrate via Express Entry. But did you know that mastering French can also help you qualify for Express Entry? French is one of the nation’s two official languages, but it is less common. Therefore, although you must be proficient in English, you will earn bonus points if you also know French. Plus, Canadian employers might...

Visit Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Snuggled between the Canadian Rockies of British Columbia and the flat open plains of Saskatchewan lies the sunny province of Alberta. Diverse landscapes of emerald gleaming lakes, dense boreal forest, and jagged mountain peaks draw visitors year-round. Many use Calgary as their gateway, not ever making it to the provincial capital of Edmonton, a three-hour drive north up AB-2. As locals are quick to call out, this is a mistake. With unusual malls, expansive parks, multicultural festivals, an...

Best places to go snowshoeing

Snowshoeing rarely gets the attention it deserves. It’s not as flashy as snowboarding or snowmobiling, but it is easier and more affordable than most winter activities — without skimping on the fun. One big perk is that snowshoeing requires no instruction. It’s as simple as hiking in snow with the help of specially designed footwear, and poles for balance, so it’s only as challenging as the route you choose. Plus, snowshoe rentals are a fraction of the cost of ski gear, and you won’t need to ...

An entrepreneur’s guide to Ottawa, Canada

If you’re not from Canada, you might be surprised to learn that the capital of the Great White North isn’t Toronto. It’s Ottawa. This is one mistake that any Canadian would tell you they’ve heard more times than they’d like to admit. Yet, in many ways, it could be argued that the same misunderstanding goes for the country’s tech capital as well. Time and time again, Toronto beats out Ottawa on global and national rankings for best tech hub — with Ottawa, in some cases, failing to even make the l...

The best spirits not sold in the US

The United States is lucky when it comes to spirits. There’s a seemingly ever-growing number of domestic distillers putting out some of the best whiskey, gin, vodka, and brandy in the world, and importers bring in a wide variety of options from abroad. But you’re not experiencing the true span of all there is to drink out there if you’re only drinking the things you can find in the US. There are bottles out in the world that can’t be found stateside and are worth seeking out when you travel a...

Made in Canada, Eh? – Canada’s New Pope

Tragically the two founders of the “Church of the Universe”, have both recently passed away. I say tragically, because Rev. Tucker and Brother Michael never got to see the day they had long fought for. They were quite the colourful characters as you will read in the links above. Their church considered Pot smoking a sacrament. While Brother Michael, their High Priest of Pot, aspired to political office, he was always considered a fringe candidate, and never was elected. (By the Rev. Tucker...

Are We There Yet?

I feel pleasantly numb and it makes me smile. My evil plan worked—a four-hour night’s sleep to disconnect from reality for most of the following day. Take that, stupid brain! The Nantes to Montreal trip is straightforward, I can do it in my sleep. Actually, I’m hoping to sleep for most of the flight. It’s part of the plan, you see. Emotionally, it’s not that easy to leave. “Is that yours?” “No, it’s mom’s charger.” “This thing?” “Tweezers. Mom’s as well. And before you ask, this is an epilator a...

Flying around Canada is now cheap

A new airline is causing an uproar in Canadian airspace by offering cross-country fares as low as $29 each way. Swoop, an offshoot of WestJet, launched service on June 20th and has adopted the model of budget-friendly airlines which upcharge for basic conveniences and shuttle passengers between smaller airports that are easier on the wallet. At the launch of their service, the airline offers direct flights to Canadian cities such as Halifax, Nova Scotia; Hamilton, Ontario; and Abbotsford, Bri...

That’s No Chevelle! It’s a Very Rare, L79-Powered, 1965 Acadian Beaumont Sport Deluxe

With all the political talk about trade pacts and free-trade agreements among countries around the globe, it’s worth remembering a time when tariffs weighed heavily in the cross-border commerce between the United States and Canada, particularly when it came to automobiles. With roughly a tenth of the population of the United States, Canada was understandably protective of its manufacturing industry in the early decades of vehicle production. Chevrolet car production in 1955 is a great example. I...

Darlene Shrugg - "Inherit the Wind" (video) (premiere)

The name Darlene Shrugg sounds like one of the singers from Phil Spector's Christmas record, but it's actually the work of Meg Remy, Max Turnbull, Simone TB, Carlyn Bezic and Amanda Crist. Remy is famously known as the Polaris Prize-nominated U.S. Girls, Turnbull as DFA Records' Slim Twig, Bezic and Crist as electropop duo Ice Cream, and Simone TB as the drummer in as many bands as possible. It's as much a Canadian supergroup as Broken Social Scene or the New Pornograph...

Greetings from the Great White North

Hello, I believe my first post should be one in which I introduce myself to the forum. First, the choice of user name, "Old Canuck." As a Canadian of advancing middle age, it felt an appropriate choice. Although it is summer at present, we do get winter where I live. Not as harsh as they used to be when I was a kid in the 1960's, slogging my uphill both ways, up to my knees in the white stuff, as my parents would say. Still, even though they tend to be milder, they can and do throw you a s...

MINISO Canada Expansion Planning to Launch 500 Stores

How the Logghe Family Changed the Face of the Funny Car Class in Drag Racing

Over the years, the Logghe Stamping Company Competition Products Division became such a familiar part of drag racing that it was simply called Logghe. Its products defined the term “Funny Car” in early 1966 with the first tube-chassis, flip-top Comet, initially built under contract for Lincoln-Mercury. The first ones were for Don Nicholson and Eddie Schartman and were powered by a normally aspirated Ford 427 SOHC engine. The third chassis was built to accommodate a supercharged SOHC in Jack Chri...

Playoff Matchups From The Canadian Side

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun, Welcome to the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs, where the storylines — at least on this side of the border — revolve around the inclusion of Mike Babcock’s Maple Leafs, Carey Price’s Montreal Canadiens, Erik Karlsson’s Ottawa Senators, Johnny Gaudreau’s Calgary Flames and last, but certainly not least, Connor McDavid’s Edmonton Oilers.
