Regional Characteristics

In the US we have regional characteristics..different attitudes or stereotypes about people that live in certain parts of the country, like the "wild west", etc. is this common in other countries?

Im sure it is. Every square inch of this planet is unique whether it be judged on vernacular, culture, history, etc.

Canada has a full range of regional characteristics, ranging from zany B.C. to predominantly French-speaking Quebec to quaint, insular Prince Edward Island.

It's hard to list them all because many of the provinces are so huge -- Ontario covers almost 1,000 miles east to west, for instance -- that they have their own regional characteristics. In my home province of Manitoba, you've got everything from the heavily Mennonite Pembina Valley, where being bilingual means speaking English and German and where some towns still prohibit the sale of alcohol, to rough-and-tumble mining towns up in the northern frontier.

Former prime minister Joe Clark was criticized for saying so, but he was right: Canada really is a 'community of communities' somehow managing to hang together, as opposed to being a nation-state with a single identity.
