What were some of the differences between Canada and Germany you first observed? Cultural or otherwise? Are these differences still present?

There are more freedoms here in Canada with business, the competition sometimes helps you out, the freedom and kindness of the people is overwhelming. Germany has tighter regulations in most areas, from business to law. In terms of culture, we have season’s tickets for sporting events like hockey and baseball, we go to the opera, and to the cottage in St. Lagard; it only takes 50 minutes and there is never any traffic. I participated in sports with my family in Germany as well.
