Canada Trip Highlights Cultural Differences, Similarities

An Albion College honors class on Canada included a weeklong trip during spring break.
Patrick McLean has long been fascinated with our neighbors to the north. “In 1985, I did my undergraduate honors thesis on Nova Scotian provincial politics,” says the Ford Institute director. From there he was hooked on a country whose culture and people are in so many ways similar to the U.S. but, in other key ways, are so different. This semester, he has taken his love of all things Canada to the classroom, teaching an honors class for first-year and sophomore students called Canada: More than Snow, Hockey and Maple Syrup.
