I can remember a few years back having a conversation with a teenage American while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta Mexico He asked me where I was from and when I told him Canada he simply smirked and looked away I asked him what he thought about Canadians and he replied Why does it matter what I think Dont you know who you are I was quite surprised with his response because I thought I knew who I was so I simply stated I am Canadian Although now that I think about it simply stating that I am Canadian doesnt stand up against anything unless you know who Canadians are I think that pinpointing the Canadian identity is similar to looking for a needle in a giant haystack Theres so much to look through before it can even be determined that the Canadian identity does in fact exist It is not possible to say that any single aspect of Canadian life can give tribute to or be labeled as the Canadian identity Ask any Canadian or foreigner for that matter and you will see that this is so A hockey fan will say that we are famous for being excellent hockey players and that is our identity A landscape artist will claim that its our rolling wheat fields Rocky Mountains and beautiful bodies of water A railroad conductor will say its our vast land and immense size that give us our identity A monarchist will proudly state that we are still an important part of the British Commonwealth Finally a patriot may proclaim that our identity is a clean beautiful free country These are all very true of course but because the opinions of the Canadian population vary our identity as Canadians is completely subjective The Canadian identity must be discovered for oneself Therefore whatever we deem worthy of such a title as the Canadian identity is neither right nor wrong on any account
