The Ottawa Police Service needs help identifying the car in the image above, as its driver may have information about an 11-year-old girl who has been missing for over two weeks.
Oh, Canada. That’s not me starting to sing their national anthem—more of a sympathetic sigh. Officials really tried to lower the volume of traffic for the citizens of Alberta’s capitol, Edmonton, but instead created the perfect set up to encourage enthusiasts and heroes to rev their engines as loud as possible.
After their son and daughter-in-law died in a motorcycle crash earlier this year, a Canadian couple decided to put their son’s Pontiac Parisienne up for auction to help raise his two young children. But instead of buying the car, bidders donated roughly $76,000 in an emotional showing of support, Global News reports.
Okay, to you, a sniveling, boring person, see a Canadian maniac on an aquatic RAMPAGE, splashing unsuspecting pedestrians. Me, a hero? I see a Canadian doing their polite Canadian duty, and cooling off their fellow travelers on a hot summer’s day. Anyway, the van guy was fired.
Look, just because you’re driving a $100,000 supercar doesn’t mean you don’t have to drive along at a snail’s pace like the rest of us plebeians. No no, you too have to suck it up as all of those 500+ horsepower go to waste. And if you don’t—as these people near Niagara Falls, Canada didn’t—your car’s getting towed.
The mere boundaries of water shall not deter the wild Canadian boating hoser from exploring new ground. Hinder him not with your puny forest service roads! Our intrepid hoser will find a way, eh.
I thought I had a good understanding of how rusty cars are in Canada, then I saw this Nissan 240SX held together with little more than hopes and dreams.

You found out the ONE TRUE WAY to protect your car from pot holes NOW?!?!?!?!?!?! Check out your custom-built VARIABLE-WHEELBASE machine!!!!!!!!! You spent HOW MUCH on a SUPRA?!!?!?!??!?!?!?!?! Okay, so that last one wasn’t featured on the Red Green Show, but the whole thing did seem like a send-up of present-day Car…
They built a new stretch of highway in the Canadian province of New Brunswick recently, and while new stretches of highway are generally good, this one might be bad, since, drivers say, the highway’s signs are confusing, such that some people are having trouble leaving the province at all. It’s a bit like that Eagles…
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s motorcade was involved in a crash, just after leaving an event at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, ABC News reports. The Canadians, presumably, have already apologized.
Canada isn’t just for chuggling maple syrup on a snowmobile while pretending to be the God of Snow. It also hosts incredible rallies, including some utterly brutal snow rallies. The only thing missing is the present-day World Rally Championship cars, and fortunately, the Rally Promoter Association of Canada announced…
Shut down the internet, everybody: I have found the world’s greatest Miata.
On Jan. 9, when temperatures in nearby Yorkton, Saskatchewan, reached a low of about 10 degrees fahrenheit, Kristyn Eftoda and her husband Wade were commuting home on a highway near Dropmore, Manitoba, when they noticed that the road was a sheet of ice. That’s when Wade, in a moment of inspiration, grabbed his skates.
Is the best part of this video the wagging tongue? I think it is. The best part of the video is that tongue.
Canada’s CBC News reports that drivers at a recycling center in Calgary, Alberta “can’t seem to stop hitting a giant rock in a suburban parking lot, despite it being an inanimate object surrounded by yellow-painted curbs.” This damn rock. Who saw it there, anyway? It came out of nowhere.
Where Regal Road and Springmount Avenue meet in Toronto, there’s quite a bit of pavement, and, importantly, all-way stop signs. The problem is that not a lot of drivers stop, probably in part because of all that space, and because it’s a rush-hour alternative to busy streets nearby. Some residents recently took it…
The Oldsmobile Alero is all but the definition of a “regular car.” It’s bland. It’s inoffensive. It will get you from Point A to Point B just fine. It can also do burnouts and sweet jumps if you’re quite bored. SEND IT!
