**changed the title to avoid confusion**

Seeing how this is now Cultimultural Noise I thought a little sharing of some ethnic background is in order.

I am B.C. born and bred, I'm full on Canadian (to the point of being asinine sometime :P ) but for my ethnic background I'm from good Russian stock, big and hairy, like animal! I enjoy maple syrup and potatoes, beer and vodka, when I watch the '72 Summit Series I cheer for both teams. I can kill a grizzly bear with my bare hands! I can drink my own weight in alcohol and survive!

I am Canadian-Russian!

God help us all!





The above is mostly sarcasm in case you missed it.....

that reminded me of george armstrong, a leaf's captain...he was very quiet but when the team watched the battle of the little big horn.....he got up and yipped and danced and pumped his fists in the air...the indians won that one....
as for me, i'm a heinz 57 mix.

Aren't we all? Well as long as we're born and raised here at any rate.

But like everyone else born and raised in North America I'm sure you have some sort of ethnic background.

I'm assuming you mean ethnic back

Aren't we all? Well as long as we're born and raised here at any rate.

But like everyone else born and raised in North America I'm sure you have some sort of ethnic background.


He asked for cultural background, so that's what he gave him.

Oh man, I'm as Canadian as you can get.

On my Dad's side I'm almost all Native with a little Irish and English tucked in there and on my Mom's side I'm English, French, Danish, Scottish, Irish, German and we think a bit of Jewish.

Mom's folks were English. Dad's folks were Swedish. My folks were both born in Winnipeg.

Me? I am a 100%, Vancouver-born Canadian now living in Dawson Creek, BC!

And I say a big thank God-or-whoever for all of the cultural diversity on this board. I wish we could all meet for a beer, or whatever!
