Ever wondered just what the mythical, lost civilization Canada is like and don't have the time &/or dinero to spend?
Let these gems be your guide.
I can't recommend the show History Bites enough -- it makes History what it should be, F U N.

Oh, and Canadian politics are easy to understand if you at least understand the US -- everything in Canada, even our most conservative party, is "left" of any party in the US.
We obsess aboot different things as well. Like IP rights is a big one. We don't obsess aboot religion. We do, unfortunately, obsess aboot our big and louder sister to the South and we do tend to define ourselves by going "We're not American", which is a shame. We aren't afraid of 'socialism' and we 'invented' Peace Keeping (though, lately, I think that is going down the tubes...) Canada is run like a business and every federal election, the fed gov't CEASES TO EXIST :3
