I never really thought about what Canadian culture is – it’s so much easier to define it as what it isn’t – until I went to University. Even then, it took my endeavor to take a couple classes on Canadian books, music, film, etc. to make me really think of it as valuable and important.
Now I try to pay closer attention to where my culture is coming from, and make an effort to absorb Canadian things. It’s very different, and in our very americanized culture, sometimes hard to absorb – but I think the act of making the effort to do it, is more important than what I may or may not get out of it.
What do you think about the Canadian Culture Industry?
