I remember studying Canada

when I was at school…Grade 6, I think.

When referring to Canadian salmon

our teacher told us that…

Canadians eat what they can and can what they can’t’.

This quote had me confused for some time

as I was used to referring to

a tin of soup, fish, whatever.

I don’t think these fish are salmon,

however they are, or were photographed

in the lobby of the

Parkside Hotel in Victoria,

British Columbia.

  1. Apparently in the former British empire countries, it’s called a “tin,” possibly because they used to me made primarily of tin. We, in America, call then “cans.”


    • Should have realised it was a British Empire thing…particularly around 1960. Somewhere during the last nearly 60 years Australia has followed suit with “cans” being the accepted terminology Down Under, also 😊
