on being canadian-american

Speaking of cross-cultural observations, here's a post by Geoff, who is studying International Relations at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. Geoff has Canadian roots, grew up in the US, and now has returned to Canada. His blog is here.

For the record, after I get Canadian citizenship, I'm not going to use the Canadian-American or American-Canadian tag. I'll follow the example of my Campaigner friends who came to Canada during the Vietnam War. If asked, I'll say I'm originally from the US, but I'm Canadian now. That works better for me.
