Today’s National Post—a newspaper that nobody even in Canada reads—has some telling statistics about Canadian culture as perceived by the rest of the world:
When asked the cultural products and services most often associated with Canada, the top six responses were: sports (22.2%), films (18.2%), museums (17.1%), pop videos (16.3%), classical sculpture (8.7%) and the circus (6.5%).
It’s too bad that such bad news was included in an otherwise positive report on our Great White North being the third most popular destination for international tourists. I guess they really do come for the maple syrup, eh?
