Traveling abroad, eh? New Mexico T-shirt company offers "Go Canadian" package
Want to travel abroad but don't want to be tagged as an American? A New Mexico T-shirt company suggests going Canadian. For 24.95, T-shirtKing.com offers a "Go Canadian" package that includes a Canadian flag T-shirt, a Canadian flag lapel pin and a Canadian patch for luggage or a backpack. There's also a quick reference guide -- "How to Speak Canadian, Eh?" -- on answering questions about Canada. The "Go Canadian" idea emerged after a staffer had heard about someone being harassed about US politics during a recent overseas trip. T-shirt-King.com President Bill Broadbent says it's not meant as a slight against either the United States or Canada. But since the package went up on the Web site last month, a couple of hundred have been sold. Dani Delaney is one of those people who bought the package. She says she admires Canada's progressiveness and think it's a good way to peacefully protest.
