    The Americans are starting to notice us?

      A fair critique I suppose ....especially on the centric Canadian ethos.

      I thought the original piece in the Times was limited in it's scope as well (pop culture and age grouping). It even resorted to hockey and snow blowers etc. jibes! I am sure if the writer had looked a bit harder he would have found some more gems from coast to coast. But how many US based journos are really tuned in to what's really happening north of the border unless certain successes hadn't already occurred in their neck of the woods or Europe (and then they would have got that info from Vogue etc).

      In any case I thought it was worth posting the op because I notice more mention by US media lately and the oft mentioned sports refrain in RR of acknowledgement of accomplishment here with the bb team at least.
