Description

This cartoon became a popular Internet meme around 2012-2013. The cartoon features a road sign that says, "Welcome to Canada, where we don't care who you marry so long as you both watch hockey" It speaks to the idea that Canadians are bound together, at least in part, by our love of hockey and to the idea that we are an open and tolerant society.
