Due South was a really fun Canadian show.
Toronto stood in for Chicago and Chicago stood in for Toronto

Supernatural as well.
With soundstages and green-screens, any place could pass for any place nowadays.
Only times I noticed them giving away their filming location in the show was when a Canada-Air plane flew above the Winchesters in one episode and the BC license plates of numerous background cars.

Somebody tried to even say the CN locomotive in one episode was a giveaway, but then that could also be explained as an American railroad leasing a CN power unit.

Canadian National also has trackage in the United States after merging several railroads, such as the Grand Trunk Western (which it owned), the Duluth, Winnipeg, and Pacific (also owned), and the Illinois Central (which was independent).

God bless,

It's a movie, but Twilight. Filmed in Oregon and British Columbia.

It seems that most of the recent made-for-TV movies that have appeared on the Lifetime and Lifetime Movienetworks are made in Canada. They all have titles that appear to be stolen from stories written for teenage girls - My Mother's Secret, My Nanny's Secret, Stalked at 17, Fugitive at 17, etc. They are all of the woman/teenage-girl-in-peril genre and are utterly predictable. There may be an American lead but every other actor/actress is Canadian. One reason they are good for occasional chuckles is that the set designers see fit to use small U.S. flags as props in the police/sheriff department settings (law enforcement is inevitably involved in the plots). I guess they do that hoping you won't notice that everyone is pronouncing their vowels as long as a country mile (the name "Holly" sounds like "Holy", etc.). I've also seen a "Pizza Pizza" restaurant in the background!
