April 19 2008 Canadian Culture Newsletter


Hello,

This is your weekly update from the Canadian Culture page at BellaOnline. My name is Melanie Hachey and I am the new editor. You can learn a little bit more about me here.

One of the main sources of humour in Canada is exasperation - in a good natured, tongue-in-cheek, eye rolling, "oh here we go again" kind of way. This week's article, Exasperation is Funny, is about the Canadian tendency to laugh at our shared frustrations.

Visit the Canadian Culture Forum to share any comments, questions, or thoughts about Canada, its people, and its culture.


This Week's Canadian Fun Fact

Did you know that the first capital city of Canada was Kingston, Ontario? According to the website, Virtual Kingston, Kingston was the capital of "the united Canadas before Confederation" from 1841 to 1844 and the first parliament of the United Provinces of Canada was opened by Governor General Lord Sydenham in Kingston on June 15, 1841.
