Defining Canada

As we approach this year's Canada Day, there are the inevitable soul-searching stories about what defines Canada, since we are a nation with a seemingly permanent identity crisis. According to a survey, Pierre Trudeau, Niagra Falls, and the Maple Leaf are our defining symbols, with the Canadarm (on the Space Station) our defining accomplishment (followed by peacekeeping and universal health care).

Personally, I think it's a little depressing that our defining accomplishment is a space robot.
