Today we talked about our national and personal identities.
Tomorrow, we’ll look at your identity and make conclusions based on the information you’ve chosen to share.
In class we had a good discussion surface about being Canadian. This is a theme we’ll explore constantly, but one article really connected with this discussion: As CBC reports, Canadians drink a LOT of coffee.
Both the article and various commenters make conclusions, but the connection of Tim Horton’s to a Canadian mythos (that involves hockey) is an apt one. As well, we’ve talked about overcoming GEOGRAPHY. Maybe we drink hot beverages like coffee because of our weather? Now we have a CULTURAL foundation for a Canadian identity. The article even includes an immigrant’s perspective: He’s moved off tea in favour of something a little more, well, Canadian.
Worth a read.
