One thing Canadians can do that you totally can’t is go to Cuba. Canadians are the #1 visitors to Cuba annually, and boy, do they love to tell you about it. They can drink Cuban rum, smoke Cuban cigars, check out crumbling Cuban architecture, stay in Cuban hotels, and just generally cavort in Cuba in a way you totally can’t without breaking the Trading With the Enemy Act.
Poutine is a dish made of fries, cheese curds and gravy. Extra points if the cheese curds are squeaky on your teeth. There is some intense debate about where exactly in Quebec it originated, but it is now available just about everywhere in Canada. The only thing that makes poutine better, of course, is adding bacon.
