:sing: O Canada, Our home and native land...

I probably eat too much poutine. In fact, I just had some less than an hour ago. No, I'm not even kidding :D Never tried beaver tails before, but now I'm hungry again. Wonder where I can find them in Vancouver...

the beaver tail shack makes me want one, so much better than a funnel cake.

Awesome picture, it conveys the canal really well
