In a new feature, the NYT says thanks to our new PM Canada is suddenly hip, suddenly?
The article profiles 17 Canadians who are “making the nation cool”, including Quebec director Xavier Dolan, singer Grimes and comedian Samantha Bee, while name dropping long-time cultural heavyweights like Joni Mitchell, Mike Myers and Leonard Cohen.
It even goes as far as saying “An expanse once stereotyped as the home to square-jawed Mounties and beer-swilling ‘hosers’ has quietly morphed into a multicultural breeding ground.”
Are they right? Thanks to Trudeau, Bieber, Drake, The Weekend have we finally found our groove? Or does America need to get over itself?
