Vancouver 2010 Canadian Pride

Comments 8 by Rebecca Bollwitt

We’re loud, we’re patriotic, and man, we’re everywhere. Canadians are showing their colours and painting the town red with their enthusiasm, celebrating Vancouver 2010. “O! Canada” rings out every few minutes on street corners and you’ll find men, women and children wearing and waving the Canadian flag with pride.

Watching CTV, they interviewed Shani Davis from Team USA who has won back to back gold. “I didn’t know Canadians were this patriotic. I always though Americans were more,” he shook his said and added, “not even close.” People are calling this “Canada Day every day” and it is, from dawn to dusk.

Should you have any more images you would like me to profile, please feel free to add them to the Miss604 Flickr Group. I don’t think I’ll get tired of seeing these happy, excited, and smiling Canadian faces any time soon.

As a side note, it’s well worth checking out the other province’s pavilions if you’re out and about. They have information about beautiful travel destinations from here to St John’s.

    […] (oui, encore elle!) va nous faire une crise d’épilepsie, pen­dant que Miss 604 semble assez fière de ses com­pa­triotes. Ben voui, c’est pas tous les jours qu’on voit les cana­diens être plus patrio­tiques que […]

    Why did MacDonald’s photoshop different mountains into the background of Vancouver for the CTV ad they did? Were the normal mountains not beautiful enough or not enough snow?
