Don't you guys find it sad that our country's culture is just a sum of dumb stereotypes? (maple syrup, beavers, hockey, winter, eh, indians, celine dion,...).

I guess it has to do with being a young country. Australia has pretty much the same problem. (kangaroos, boomerangs, beaches,...)
I didn't care much about Tim Horton while living in Canada but a few years after I moved to US, I stopped by a Tim Horton every summer when I visit
