Canada exports a lot of worthy things. Universal human rights, the idea of a UN peacekeeping force, poutine. But one of the country’s greatest exports, at least in my opinion, is its people.
And I’m not talking about obnoxious backpackers with Canadian flags sewn to their packs who insist that they aren’t American. I’m talking about the kind of Canadian who decides to leave the country to do work in another place. They choose to leave and live elsewhere, and with any luck, they learn a lot about other cultures. And the bring the very best back with them. Eventually.
The Expats is both a celebration and examination of the lives of Canadians living abroad. It’s about viewing the world through the eyes of our fellow Canadians. At least for now. It’s very possible the Expats will grow into something that celebrates all the wonders and strangeness of cross pollination between countries.
If that explanation doesn’t satisfy you, maybe give the first episode a listen. And if even that doesn’t satisfy you, I strongly suggest you get yourself down to the nearest restaurant that serves poutine.
