I Am Canadian

No, I am not a brand of beer. I am a Canadian citizen by birth, marriage or confirmed immigration papers. I am a Canadian who wants to share this land, resources and future with other Canadians of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, faiths and cultures.

I Am Canadian Molson Beer TV Commercial

I AM Canadian was the slogan of Molson Canadian Beer from 1994 until 1998 and between 2000 and 2005. It was also the subject of an extremely popular television ad campaign centered around Canadian nationalism, the most famous examples of which are "The Rant" and "The Anthem". "The Rant" commercial premiered during the Academy Awards. The ads aired in both English Canada and the United States. In 2005, shortly after Molson's merger with American brewer Coors, Molson announced that it was retiring the "I am Canadian" slogan. Was the slogan retired to appease their American customers?

"The Rant" Lyrics for the I Am Canadian Molson Beer TV Commercial

Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader....
I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled....
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really really nice.

I have a Prime Minister, not a president.
I speak English and French, not American.
And I pronounce it 'about', not 'a boot'.

I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and it is pronounced 'zed' not 'zee', 'zed' !!!!

Canada is the second largest landmass!
The first nation of hockey!
and the best part of North America

My name is Joe!!
And I am Canadian!!!
