We sampled four fancy poutines paired with four local beers. Pretty much everybody agreed that the poutine was delicious, especially the one topped with Montreal smoked meat. The Coolcumber fruit beer from Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, which was paired with the Mexican poutine, was by far the favourite.

Thanks to everyone for hanging out with us and a huge thank you to CanSouth’s Social Media volunteer for organizing this fun and tasty event!
Cam Ward was in the nets for the Canes against his home town team last Friday night, leading the Canes to a 2-1 victory. Many were at PNC Arena to see Connor McDavid, the fastest skater in the NHL in 2017. Enjoy a few photos sent by CanSouth’s sports correspondent!
Much fun was had by all who attended the Holiday Brunch at Humble Pie on Sunday December 11. Our President took the opportunity to thank all the Leadership Team volunteers who organised the events scheduled in 2016. Their time and efforts are much appreciated.
Here are a few photos of the gathering.
Stay tuned for more events in 2017! Happy holidays to all.
The Winnipeg game was quite physical and fast-paced having a little of everything. The hit on Tony Enstrom by Canes Brock McGinn in the second period changed the games tempo. The Jets lost to the Canes 3-1. CanSouth’s Sports Correspondent sent along some photos for your enjoyment!
Three quick goals in the third period blow Hurricanes past Habs. Canes beat the Canadiens 3-2 with Montoya in the nets. CanSouth’s Sports Correspondent sent pictures of the Canes vs Habs game on November 18. Enjoy!
Last day at the International Festival. The Canada Booth was a great success again this year with visitors praising our display about sports and games. If you participated in the festival–either as a host or a visitor–and you have photos you would like to share with us, please send them along! (Simply use the email on our contact page.)
We’re planning on participating in the International Festival again next year; send us a note if you’re interested in joining the fun!
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who hosted the Booth today: Paul, Sharon, Joe, Shirley, Gary and Caroline.
Second day at the International Festival and the Canada Booth is still a destination for visitors. Having great fun telling them that James Naismith was Canadian and that we totally rock at curling! Love impressing them with the fact that we have two national sports–hockey (winter) and lacrosse (summer). Nice to see jaws drop when they realize that their favourite board game or video game was invented by a Canadian or produced in Canada!
Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers for their energy and cheerfulness: Gary, Paul; Caroline, Geoff, Alyssa, Emilie, Martin and Greg.
