No, I'm quite sure it's for all of Australia.

I find our law against unamed alcoholic beverages very funny. I mean, this is Canada for *meep*s sake. It's like, basically know for beer and hockey.
The problem is not that the beer is unnamed, but that you are only allowed to mention beer in a beer commercial. The presence of beer in advertising has always been strictly controlled, in Canada.

At first, there was no beer on TV. Then the powers that be relented, so beer ads were an image of the label, or bottle, with a voice over. The next stage were people having fun in a room where beer bottles could be seen. As things became more risque, the people having fun were allowed to hold the beer bottle, which still had its cap on. As I do not watch commercial television, I do not know if the people in beer ads are finally allowed to actually appear to be drinking beer.

Outside of beer commercials, the presence of beer is absolutely forbidden.

No. Canada is known for it's snow and cold climate (which is only true 1/4 of the year actually), for it's natives (which is not true), our rough way of living (which is a bold lie too) and it's peacekeepers (blue helmets).

We are known for drinking it, but only americans consider our beer to be remarkable, and only because their beer is even worse than ours. Canadian beer is typically competently brewed, eminently drinkable in hot weather, but forgettable. American beer is all that, but with only 3-4.5% alcoholic content. Our beer is between 4-6.5% alcohol. Like other nations, we do have microbreweries that fill the niche markets, but we mostly drink our version of megaswill.

Canadians dissatisfied with what the megabreweries have to offer are not discouraged from brewing their own, and there is a small industry catering to these people. My father-in-law brews his own beer, starting with the grinding of the malt. He has not gone as far as roasting his own malt; although, he does wax poetic about the possibility of even growing his own barley.

Canada is known for its contributions in both World Wars, as our soldiers were effectively used as shock troops (the germans were frightened by two types of troops: highland regiments and canadians, canadian highland regiments combining the most frightening aspects of both groups). We are also known for vast tracts of wilderness. It is a trivial, but not necessarily inexpensive, undertaking to go somewhere over a hundred kilometres from the nearest habitation. We should also be known for the vastness of our natural resources.

About our national resources, a song by the Arrogant Worms:

My country's bigger than most
And if asked I boast
'Cause I'm really proud
So I shout it loud
Though our numbers are few
We will welcome you

Although we don't have history
Gold medal winning teams
Heroes or prisoners
World famous volcanoes
Still what we've got's glorious

'Cause we've got
Rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And water

All right, everyone!

We've got
Rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And rocks and trees
And trees and rocks
And water

In Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada
Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada

Posting songs about Canada eh, can't forget this one by one of the most talented musicians who does it all (Produce, mix, engineer, sing, write lyrics, music and so on) Mr. Devin Townsend.

5. Canada

The road,
It's home,
At least for now, the rivers low

Wake me, please wake me,
It's cold and warm on the prairie freeway

All the time I needed your approval to be me
All that time spent waiting for the jury duty...
More than ever I needed Mora
More than Mora means...
Be whatever you must be to get by

It's oil, It's wheat, It's soil, It's meat
It's beef!

The road, it's home, the mountain high, river low...
Wake me, please wake me,
When it's my turn to drive
Only the lonely (and maybe John Denver) know the Canadian freeway.
