Throwback Thursday Cool Canadian Babes We Love
As a Canadian kid, it was dreadfully easy to get 'greener grass' syndrome and feel envious of the U.S.A. and its pop culture machine. Everything felt bigger and shinier and more dramatic: I wanted to go to high school in the 90210, shop at Limited, and watch TRL. Then I wised up and realized that Caitlin Ryan was cooler than Donna Martin, Roots was just fine, and The Wedge beat out TRL any day. Likewise, I realized I didn't need to look elsewhere for badass women to inspire me, but was surrounded by women doing their thing—and doing it well—in so many different sectors. I asked some people of all genders about their Canadian female role models and the response was overwhelming and illuminating.
