Well, although francophones (even those who do not speak English) occasionally use English swear words, the character she plays is called Kim Wright, and from what I gather is supposed to be a Frenchified Quebec anglophone.

Do French Canadians worry as much as people in the ROC about making movies or TV shows that tell their history?

I can't remember the name, there was a tv show, it was compared to The Wire, it was set in Vancouver, the main guy was named Jimmy...It was on Netflix...It was good(Not as good as The Wire, but good), they left it with a cliff hanger and it wasn't picked up for a 3rd season.

Know what I'm talking about?

No. It is not an issue here. Pretty much any story that is worth telling gets told. And some that are not worth telling as well!

Not a movie, but this is supposedly a classic Canadian cartoon:

When I was in my late teens this short film was screened across Canada as a preview to the film A Fish Called Wanda with Kevin Kline and Jamie Lee Curtis. People were rolling in the aisles even before the main feature started. And since Wanda was a huge hit, the cat film got awesome visibility and many people still talk about it today.

I think the short Canadian film screenings before movies (always American) was a National Film Board of Canada project. In any event The Cat Came Back was one of the most memorable ones.

Yes it is a classic. It was played for years as a cartoon before a movie started. People almost expected it at one time. It was odd because no one seemed to tire of it. The song though isn't Canadian it was written by one you guys CBC Television also played it a lot.
