From the creators of CBC radio's This is That; Pat Kelly, Chris Kelly and Peter Oldring. From CBC Radio's most beloved satirical comedy team comes This is That: Travel Guide to Canada, a hilariously outrageous parody of the travel guide genre and what it means to visit Canada. Searching for a weekend away with the kids? This is That: Travel Guide to Canada will teach you how to navigate the twelve petting zoos of Etobicoke and how to avoid pickpockets in Kamloops. Planning your summer holiday? Keep in mind that the city of Brandon, Manitoba, is closed for annual maintenance between July 12 and August 19 and that tipping your server in Swift Current is offensive. Presented in the familiar casing of a traditional travel guidebook, à la Lonely Planet or Rough Guide, This is That: Travel Guide to Canada takes readers on a farcical - and unbelievable - journey from coast to coast to coast to coast to coast. This faux guide also includes essential travel tips, such as useful Canadian phrases to locate the bathroom, best places to portage, and most spectacular malls above sea level.
This guide aims to help those unaccustomed to life in Canada discover the majesty of what the Internet calls:
