A word of explanation to those of you who have not yet met any "Canadians" abroad. This shirt is dedicated to American tourists who pose as Canadians through the used of shirts or more commonly Canadian flag patches on there backpacks in order to avoid foreigners disdain.

Do real Canadians wear shirts with Canadian flags on them?

Re: Posers Eh!


Cute shirt... I live in Washington state. I've had some great times in Vancouver, B.C., and I don't know if you know this, but among its charms is the fact that it's considered to be the city with the very best Chinese restaurants in this part of the world. It's impossible to get bad food in Vancouver!

I've never disguised myself as a Canadian! ;-)

That's so funny to me, because when I had family in Detroit, they used to take us across to Windsor to get Chinese food.

The Bridge between Detroit and Windsor has the distinction of being the one place where you can cross into Canada going south (and of course cross into the US going north).

Ha ha ha, this is great. I know a lot of people who have done that to save their necks. It can get pretty hectic in the world if people know you're American. This could also be useful once they make it mandatory for you to have a passport to go into Canada.

I don't know, but many Americans where clothing with some type of American flag, including patches; I don't think that's odd. i never think twice about it

People in Japan think I'm Brazilian. No joke.

It's also the busiest US/Canada border point. Not just of Michigan's three, but of the entire border. (I grew up within an hour drive of the Ambassador Bridge and Tunnel)

Because Michigan is a border state and the borders are active like whoa, Michigan is going to be releasing an enhanced driver's license that will double as a passport. Cool, no? I already have a passport but if I didn't I'd be all over it.
