Molson Dry if I remember correctly was the beer of choice in Quebec back in the day. At least the people I knew.

Yes red wine is suppose to help keep you thin. I'm a red wine drinker. BC makes some really great Pinot Noir.

Canadian women take care of themselves on the whole. They are fat conscious and in large cities tend to do a lot of walking which helps with their weight.

As for beauty, the night clubbers are usually nice looking women who want to go out and be seen. They can be quite vain and conceited, so don't let looks and first impressions fool you. They can be great looking on the outside and UGLY on the inside.

There are ugly ones too as far as appearance, but they don't tend to frequent the hot spots as often.

Women don't (usually) go shopping in jogging pants and messy shirts. They put on a bit of makeup and dress nicely. They just do and it is nice. I can usually pick out the lower income/welfare people-they don't dress as nicely and often their kids are in dirty clothes.

Yes I remember those Molson Dry days too!

These days it's still there but it's not the "in" beer. I am not sure there is an "in" beer anymore as the market has become very fragmented with an explosion of microbrews and also a rise in the popularity of imports.

It is their right to be dressed however they prefer, and it is my right to consider them trashy and vulgar. You don't need to wear a perfect evening gown every day, but at least show some respect. How would you think if a guy shows half of its hairy butt and hairy stomach to you every day? That's just gross and low taste in any culture.

Revealing part of you waist is fine, just make sure it is not the wavy fat you are revealing. And showing 80% of the legs (often thicker than mine) with high heels isn't sexy at all. It is desperation for attention.

...then there is beer snobbery. My generations beer snobbery means never drinking US beer, even beers like Budweiser etc that is actually brewed in Canada. LOL

Besides, there are way too many good beers out there now to drink mediocre beers.

Time for your little bit of Canadian history lesson.

Canadian beer drinkers in the past, had as part of their mantra, that American beer was P*** and weaker in alcohol content.
Now, whether the alcohol content part was true or not, their beer tended to be fizzier and much lighter tasting than Canadian beer.
This was way before micro-breweried became popular, so we are comparing major breweries to major breweries.
This idea that Canada beer was better was widespread, and for me at the time, our major breweries did brew a tastier brew.

Today....with the explosion of craft breweries in both countries, you can find great beers in both.

Beer like anything consumed, can't really be scientifically decided which is better. For instance in Canada our IPA's tend to be much less hoppy than US IPA's. I don't like the US style IPA, but others do.

Why beer and not all products? Beer is ingrained in Canadian culture, it has more emotional impact than another product from the US.
As for your slag on Canadians not being able to not buy American, really? Americans can not avoid buying something made in China ( Canadians as well ). It's called trade and has nothing to do with some country being weaker or less because they buy another countries products. Those products are not charity.

Are Canadian women as addicted to plastic surgery as American women seem to be?
