Destination Indentity

So this year I decided to experience my most Canadian year.  I am a Canadian, and have always been a Canadian, but want to experience what it really meant to be Canadian.  Is it the cliche stereotypes that we projected in the opening ceremonies at the Winter Olympics, with igloos and giant inflatable moose or is it something more? I hope it is.  Often we define ourselves by what we used to be, where our ancestors came from, and far too often neglect to include our Indigenous People as part of our identity.  What does it mean to be Canadian now?? Well I'm about to drive my way across Canada to Newfoundland to find out, and hopefully have some fun along the way, to find out.
