I am in the process of selecting my next travel destination in Canada. A 2-week trip. Possibly, too, something near-the-US border, but I get mixed signals of American openness to Canadians since 9/11, thanks to our politicials nonrepresentative speeches.
Does Canada, a supposedly tolerant mix of people of various origins, have provincial
profiles (character), very much like States in the US?
My logic is: If you are going to be 2 weeks in the same spot, might as well know in advance the psychological makeup of its citizens.
Living in Quebec, I could tell you that the Latin roots definitely have an impact in social dealings here, specially if you are dealing with unilingual (mostly French-speaking) people. The average Quebecer sure has a cultural ID tag.
Now what could be the other provinces cultural ID tags? What can one expect in each province?
Feel free to throw in generalizations and/or stereotypes, historic influences, data, statistics. The more data, the better.
Thanks in advance!
