The Trendliest

A Friendly Guide To The Latest Trends

Eh, Canada?

Greetings fellow members of the all-powerful Trenderati.  It’s 2009 and Trendliest has returned from it’s lengthy travel hiatus with a sunny new outlook on what will be friendly and trendy for the year ahead.  Having just trotted halfway around the globe, it’s only natural that our first find of ’09 is this year’s destination du jour.  While the eyes of the world seem focused on the glow emanating from the United States of America thanks to the inauguration of their first President that won’t be using bronzer, travelers might feel the need to avert their eyes in order to see what the  next friendly trendy hotspot on the horizon is.

Provided they’ve tilted their gaze in the right direction, they’ll come face to face with the nanooks of the Great White North.   Having received scant spotlight as the land of the free and the home of the Quebecois, we here at Trendliest think it’s about time Canada got it’s  destinationly due.


Canada is much more than Britain’s frigid, nearly uninhabitable, non-resistant consolation prize for colonization.  It’s the only actual area in the world where Queen Elizabeth II still  holds sway over any important government issue.  Despite, not actually being in charge of itself,  the Great White North has plenty going for it, with a plethora for activities and culture for tourists to sink their heels into provided the ice isn’t too thin.

Not only does North America’s  other other country bear responsibility as the birthplace of such rich cultural concepts as Curling, Celine Dion , and confusion; but they also play host with the most to a variety of cities with funny names.  Once inside the borders one can get hearty laughs by posing in front of signs for cities like Bamff, Guelph, and Saskatoon.  If one so chooses they might enter one of those cities and take in a hockey match or perch themselves on a street corner to watch the ever popular All Canada Constant Dogsled 500 Race pass through town for a fleeting moment.

While many of the world’s destinations have the fear of falling to international terrorism, Canadians are so confident in their safety that Canadian-born Counter-Terrorism expert Kiefer Sutherland and his daughter, Elisha Cuthbert have been outsourced to the United States track down potential threats, while Pamela Anderson uses her special skills to keep tabs on some  “Very Important People” in the Los Angeles area.

Yes, Canada has it all, safety, curling, and did we mention the 2010 Winter Olympics?  Oh we forgot that one.  In that case, Canada will be a friendly and trendy destination all the way into 2010.  Rejoice, eh?

  2. Just so you know, we don’t all ride polar bears to school and live in igloos. 🙂 And it’s Banff, not Bamff.
    Got it, eh? 😛

  3. To be honest, we dont care about the queen of England anymore than anyone else from whatver country does. And she does not hold any sway over the decisions. She merely signs the papers. She has to, its not like she holds the deciding factor.

  6. FYI bud, southern Ontario is further south than some of those precious American States. Wasaga Beach is a huge tourist attraction, right close to Blue Mountain, another huge attraction where we do such unusual pastimes as snowboarding and skiing. We get 30 degrees Celsius and sometimes higher in summer. England is the only country that refers to the Queen as her majesty anymore. And Saskatoon or Banff are no funnier than Burnt Corn, Long Fork or Glasscock.
