I have compiled a list that sums up the best and worst of Canada’s artistic, culinary, literary, musical, political and social elements. It is based on my opinion, derived from my own personal experience, having resided in both Montreal and Vancouver and having visited parts of Quebec and Ontario.
Best Canadian Food: Homemade meat pies, sugar pies, maple syrup pies
Best Canadian Drink: Canada Dry Ginger Ale
Best Known Canadian Writer: Leonard Cohen and Gabrielle Roy
Best Canadian Fine Artist: Emily Carr, an artist from Vancouver but the elementary school I attended in Montreal was named after her so maybe I am being biased here.
Most Physically Attractive Person from Canada: Linda Evangelista (I think she was the best-looking out of all the supermodels because she had her own style, looked great in every haircut and hair color, could pull off any look from the androgynous to the ultra feminine look and made it her own)
Most Funny Canadian : Many comedians come from Canada: Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, Norm Macdonald, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy. Of these, I like Norm Macdonald’s humour the most. I find it the most natural and updated. Sometimes his jokes have no punchline and he does not follow the conventional style of telling a joke. He also does not rely on overdone imitations and impersonation.
In addition, Josh Freed, a journalist from Montreal, writes funny editorials in The Gazette and has published entire books based on them.
