I've never listened for it, and I'm not sure where I picked it up. I know it's not my own invention, but I can't put a source on it. Also, I'm curious as to how Americans perceive "Canada like life". I live in Toronto, which is the biggest city in Canada; there are around 3 million people in the Greater Toronto Area, so I can't represent the average Canadian.
