Interracial Dating and Relationships: How common or rare it would be to see a South Asian (eg Indian) male with a White female in Canada?
If you are talking about raw statistical frequency, it is not common, even in urban areas.

The one that came to mind first is Saskatoon. It's not the boring prairie backwater some people think it is.

Are Canada and Australia more British in culture and identity than the United States since the US broke with the British in the 1700s while Canada and Australia remained colonies until the 20th century?
I would say definitely ‘yes'.As a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, we have a common bond with the UK. Even though we are a democratic country, technically Queen Elizabeth is Head of State. Although she has no power here and is a figure head, but the crown joins all commonwealth countries together with
Canada is the closest, in many ways, despite many differences.English-speaking Canada has its roots in the same population as the United States, because thousands of United Empire Loyalits came to settle Upper Canada from the Thirteen Colonies after 1783.Many Canadians and Americans easily visit each other across a long open border.

Aussies and Canadians share culture in terms of us being Commonwealth brothers, loving each others' countries and people, having a shared beer-drinking culture, and we both have a rugged work-hard-play-hard approach to life, and I think it's fair to say we're both nations of fairly outdoorsy-type people.I've long thought of Australia as being the Canada of the

What are some elements of British culture which New Zealand and Australia have discarded, yet Canada retains?

Nobody knows.With houses, stock, and bonds, if investors knew when the market was going to crash, they'd all attempt to sell out just before the crash to maximize their profits and thus cause the market to crash earlier. If investors could prevent the market from crashing, they'd do so. All that's possible is to recognize when the housing/equity/bond market
