Marina-san’s comment: What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Canada? Is it the cold weather? Our obsession with hockey and maple syrup? Or maybe our beautiful nature and wildlife? These things do define us as a country, but we are more complex than all that.
At this event I’ll dig into some facts you may not know about Canada, outline the differences between our regional geographies and economies, and discuss our complicated shift to sustainability.
Come try some sweet Canadian treats made with our famous maple syrup like maple bacon, maple taffy, and maple cookies!
