f you were to walk through the Diag
and ask a random person what the
major difference between the United
States and Canada is, chances are you
would get a bunch of different answers.
For instance, from an underage delin-

who is past that stage in life, you might
get 'Canada uses the metric system.'
Now if instead of stopping Average
Joe, you were to stop Michigan hockey
captain Sean Peach, you'd definitely get
a unique answer.
A native of Langley, British
Columbia, Peach is a true Canadian at
heart. As a result, the nuances of daily
life between western Canada and Ann
Arbor stick out a little more clearly to
"People are a lot more relaxed back
home;' Peach said. "Here people are
always on the go. They always want to
get stuff done right away and have goals
set. Where I come from, people take life
one day at time."
Ok, so that's the first true insight into
Canadian life you might hear. That
major cultural difference is also some-
thing you definitely wouldn't notice
from a quick trip to Windsor.
And when Peach first arrived in Ann
- Sean Peach
had cowboy boots
Arbor in the fall
of 1996, he
change in the
pace of life. But
stuck out more.
"It was a total
shock when I
first came here,"
Peach said. "I
and stuff and I
dressed differently. I only wore the cow-
boy boots a couple of times before I
realized that I didn't see anyone else
"I realized I had to get some new
shoes and clothes. I went to
Abercrombie quite a bit my freshman
year. People say Canadians wear tighter
jeans and that we're a couple of years
behind in style back home."
Yet, regardless of the cultural differ-
ences between British Columbia and
Michigan, Peach has felt at home since
his first visit to Yost Ice Arena. That
year, the Wolverines went on to win
their first national championship in
more than 30 years, defeating Colorado
Michigan captain Sean Peach (24) is a long way from his British Columbia home.
Nevertheless, he has found his niche at the heart of the Michigan defense.
