Canada: Your Slogan Here

Listener Challenge

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 - 05:35 PM

Face it, Americans don’t get Canada. After hockey and Celine Dion we know shockingly little about our strongest ally, our largest trading partner, the nation with which we share 5,500 miles of border.  Studio 360 thinks it’s time to change that. Canada’s image in the United States needs a fresh start, a rebranding.  It’s time for people to know Canada is not just America’s hat.

Help us help Canada.  
Write a six-word slogan that sells Canada to America.

UPDATE: Our contest is now closed.
But you are welcome to continue sharing your ideas below.

  • Post your slogan as a comment below.
  • The winning entry will win a trip to Washington DC!
    (courtesy of PRI)
  • The deadline to be considered for our contest is Sunday, June 24, 2012 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time.
  • Listen for the winner on the show the weekend of June 30.

Click here for the complete rules and regulations for the contest.

 

By the way, our sister Canadian show at the CBC — Q with Jian Ghomeshi — is taking on a similar challenge to redesign America. Check in on their efforts to "Help America help itself."

Canada: Sophisticated tastes, Hometown Values

Jul. 05 2012 11:47 PM

Forgive me, but I'm gonna post the ideas I had for "Redesign Canada" slogans now, late. Just a few:

Canada. Nothing to be embarrassed about.

Canada. Holding the line on global warming.

Canada. The sensible country.

Canada can't threaten to annihilate you.

Canada. It's a whole 'nother country.

Canada. We're above it all.

Canada. Our English is better.

Canada. The lesser of two evils.

Canada. We're much nicer than you are.

----------------------------------------------------------------

[Specifically from the American point-of-view:]

Where Canada on map?

Canada. It's my kind of town!

Oh! Canada! Baby!

----------------------------------------------------------------

[The following ones are on the "colder/cooler" theme. I wrote these last week, but of course you only have my word for that. (No Canadian would do something this crass, I know...) Anyway! Here goes:]

Canada. A really cool country.

Canada. It'll give you the shivers.

Canada is cooler.

Thanks,

My six word phrase:

Come out to Canada: Nice, eh?

Of course, this should be pronounced with the correct vowels, which look something like this when spelled phonetically:

Come oot to Canada: Neece, ay?

The Canadian use of "eh" at the end of a sentence is, of course, the equivalent of the French "N'est-ce-pas" and is useful for turning any statement into a question.

Slogan:
Canada: America's Future Home Once the Climate Changes.

With the world continuing its pursuit of growth and extraction of ever more sources of oil, coal, and natural gas, the world is on track for 4 degrees of climate change or more. This will desertify large parts of the Western US (our bread basket) and flood much of America's heavily populated coasts. Hence, Canada will become the future home of millions of American refugees, since the warming climate will open up more of Canada's currently frozen lands to settlement. That's quite a winning position to be in, relatively speaking, and might explain why Canada has pulled out of the Kyoto Protocol and is developing its tar sands with abandon. But with that scenario comes a future of mass difficult-to-manage migration from Canada's southern neighbors, a fact that the country can prepare its population for with with a catchy new slogan.

Name it "Trailer park, poor white trash government". According to Cyberjournal and C-span, their MP and Finance Ministry state they cannot afford "a pot to urine in", "a hat to defecate in and an another to cover it with", or toilet paper to clean up the mess. I am aware that Canadian citizens are buying up Florida and Arizona foreclosed houses (as summer and retired houses) as fast as the banks and courts can process them. Is that called off-shore investment?

Canada: No reason for our overbearing superiority complex.
Canada: We think we're better than you, yet know we're not. Wasn't Freud Canadian.
Canada: We think we're international for watching soccer, but fail consistently at the sport.
Canada: Yes! We have a childish obsession with telling you we're not American.
Canada: We're obnoxiously defensive about our lack of international standing.
Canada: We'll take any chance we can to tell you we're more multicultural than you.
Canada: We'll tell you to your face we love Quebec and appreciate Francophone culture, largely we don't.
Canada: We'll find any chance we can to remind you that Ryan Gosling and Justin Bieber are Canadians, yet we won't take responsibility for Celine Dion.

Years ago I even bought the URL because I loved the rhythm of the phrase so much, and have always hoped that it could become a tourism tagline.

or as whatever the official Canadian font is, but whatever the slogan is as cut from a rippling Canadian flag, so that the rippling maple and blue sky is visible, so that the slogan gets energy from the waving flag)

American. Canada.

American, Friend, Neighbor: Canada. Come visit!

Seeing is believing: Canada!

See Canada for the FIRST time!

New Country: Canada!
(maybe all the letters googly, like Google does for spelling special days, like with moose, skates, maple leaves, trees, diamonds, fur, boats, etc.)

New Prospects: Canada!

Diamond in the Rough, Canada!
(Canada has become a worlds source for diamonds, I think, with all that technology having been applied to prospecting)

Canada: Adventure starts here!
Canada: The Road starts here!

Canada: the Footsteps of Greatness!
Canada: History slept here! Adventure awaits!
(follow Franklin?)

Canada: as far as you can get without a passport ...

Canada: What are you waiting for?

We share the worlds longest undefended border with a country whose northern border just extends indefinitely.

Beware the Scourge of Canadianism.

If we do not stand vigil, we may indeed get universal health care, like Canada. We may set aside the death penalty. We may begin to care for environmental interests instead of only industrial and commercial interests. We may pay a more reasonable price for gasoline (rather than have our descendants subsidize our fossil fuel price). By not standing against the influence of Canada, we may become more like Europe. We may lose our "American Exceptionalism". We might even decriminalize marijuana! Our most conservative leaders will be on par with Stephen Harper. Horror of horrors!

Canada: divided with one part not knowing who they are except that they are not Americans.

Canada: confused about who they are but OK with it.

Canadada! Re-branded by 'canajuns'. Follow us.

The simple truth is that 'Canada' as we currently know it is morphing into a Harper nightmare-fantasy. With over 60% of eligible Canadians NOT voting for the man - our Prime Minister or his party, the Conservative Party - we're being forced to accept a 'vision' that is not remotely connected to most civil-minded, nature-loving, future-thinking Canadians. The recent passing of his omnibus budget Bill C38 is a rude & contemptuous 'wake up' call. It decimates environmental safeguards, jeopardizes the future of our water, land, mineral and coastal resources, allows the USA to enter 100 km into our 'territory' to arrest ANYONE, and gives more power to a 'centralized' government in Ottawa. This is not the Canada Canadians want or deserve. Ergo, re-branding Canada - AWAY from the Harper VISION - is a good place to start. First, we have to dispense with his corporate loving rhetoric and profoundly re-align with what really does make this country second to none: our landscape.

"Canada - it's like America, but better"

Think about all the qualities we like to think are American are actually done better by Canadians. Wheat fields, the Rockies, cowboys, wide open spaces, and country music - all things that Canadians have more of. Even iconic American characters like Alex P Keaton, Samantha Jones, and Lionel Hutz - all portrayed by Canadians. Canada offers everything that the USA offers PLUS a lot of European sensibility as well. A good example of this is sports. They follow and compete in all of our professional sports, Football, Basketball, Baseball, AND they follow all those cool Euro sports like soccer, rugby, and cricket. They're us just better.

"Turn Over A New Leaf"

It's difficult to generalize for such a culturally, and even linguistically diverse nation. As a US American, freshly relocated to Toronto, the challenge of reinterpreting Canada is a familiar and personal one. I've suggested "turn over a new leaf" for its allusion to the maple leaf flag, one of the few pre-existing symbols that all the people in this multifaceted country share. I also personally think it's a really unique and beautiful flag. At the same time, "turn over a new leaf" encourages Americans to reevaluate their impressions of Canada, and to come take a visit with an open mind. I also think this slogan celebrates the way that Canada has continuously redesigned its political, linguistic, national, and racial identity. Canada is a place where many kinds of people have been welcomed and celebrated; a country, if you will, always already undergoing re-designs!

A lot of these comments are stupid, but many comments left on the CBC site are, too. As someone who works with regularity on both sides of the border, I see a familiar and enduring inferiority/superiority complex running through comments on both sites that is counterproductive and cliche. Is our relationship really so one-dimensional? No. Sure, there are differences between the two countries, but is the objective here to highlight difference?

It's usually better to define something by what it is than what it isn't. Both Americans and Canadians should look for ways to define themselves and each other by individual and shared attributes, not by reactions to each other. Opening with a negative (e.g., "Like America, But Safe", "Like Canada, But Interesting," etc) you immediately lose the audience (and not to mention, reinforce boring stereotypes).

I have been to Victoria, Vancouver, Montreal and Quebec City. I have been wanting to travel all over Canada, especially to Banff, Whistler and Ottawa. My best anecdote from my travels in Canada: My best friend and I met an Italian chef living in Vancouver. We got along real well and followed him as he went to the butcher, the baker and the produce market to buy the items needed for dinner that night. His beautiful golden labrador accompanied us everywhere we went. The chef seemed to be buying duplicates of everything like a fresh baguette and a day old baguette. We stopped at a local park to chat with a Rastafari and then walked happily back to his home. As we all drank wine, he prepared the meal for us and his wife. When finished, we sat down to enjoy the meal. The dog was served first and told in Italian, "Your food is ready but very hot so please wait until it cools and everybody else is served." The dog's food was identical to ours and served on a plate, not a bowl. His buttered baguette in slices. The dog sat patiently by his food and waited. After all were served, the chef gave a toast to Canada and then winked at the dog and the dog began to eat. My friend and I were dumbfounded. I said to him six words: "Canada, even the dogs have civility."

I want to change mine to
"Canada- America's Best; Get to know 'em!"

I say that because we Americans tend to usurp all the best Canada loans to us. It is one of my most favorite places to visit, both City and Countryside. An Amazing place - it's people have a right to be proud.

And while we're at it, a pet peeve. WNJN, a public radio station was recently usurped by both wHYY (Phila.) and WNYC (guess where)and they took off one of my favorite driving home from work evening programs, "As it Happens". It was just lovely to hear another perspective (as it is listening to the BBC)on this big place and that one. Miss you guys!
