I looked them up. New Era media, based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Which takes this back to post #34.

Poutine is seen outside of Canada, as a Canadian dish, so an American marketing firm made the same mistake.

How it got approved and by whom, would clarify " usurped as a "local delicacy" by other parts of Canada."

My guess is that the marketing in this case was done for the whole MLB and perhaps the Blue Jays didn't have any input. After all, the MLB is a US organization, and the Blue Jays CEO Mark Shapiro is American.

Whoever it was, the hats were removed fairly quickly, and personally I wouldn't be so quick to blame " other parts of Canada ".

I can't find anything about the Raptors and poutine so far.

Oh man I was too trusting of AJ

As the Blue Jays too trusting of New Era Media. That said, Rogers owns the Jays so maybe they should be the blame of this Poutine pandemonium. Oh wait, maybe Ed Rogers was too busy fighting for control of the company to notice

Proof that poutine is seen by Americans, and other foreigners, as a Canadian dish comes from a thread we had here in the Canada forum, back in June of 2020. Here's the OP:

Just a goofy question. I've loved Corner Gas for years, and folks are always ordering fries & gravy. Is fries and gravy a popular food in Saskatchewan, or did they just simplify poutine because the show would be seen by Americans who would be confused and say "what the heck is poutine?" BTW, I was making fries and gravy for my husband, a native of western Pennsylvania, 40 years ago. We enjoy it poutinized now and then too.
Link to the thread from which this OP came, if anyone would like to review it:

But I would say I'm much happier here than I ever was back in the U.S.; I live outside of Van in Coquitlam, about an hour away.
I don't understand your explanation. I was told on this forum, that there is no retirement-related immigration type of visa for Canada: no "investor" category, or "geezer visa" (financially independent retirees), like in some countries. Could you clarify?
