Both Hockey, maple syrup and
Juatin Bieber all have one thing
in common - their place of origin,
Canada.
And one campus group aims to
bring the culture of the Great White
North to Ann Arbor through the
Canadian Club, eh.
Busineas School graduate Indresh
Kohli, the "prime minister" of the
Canadian Club, eh, wrote in an
e-mail interview that the club has
existed for many years but was offi-
cially recognized as a student orga-
nization this academic year.
The Canadian Club, eh has sev-
eral serious and silly goals, Kohli
wrote.
"(The goals are) (i) to promote
business opportunities north of the
border; (ii) to share Canadian cul-

dian bootleggers in case of a return
of 1930s style Prohibition in Ann
Arbor," he wrote.
A Toronto native, Kohli joked that
the club provides "a safe place' for
students to discuss aspects of Cana-
dian culture they deem better than
the American way of life.
"(We talk about) the superiority
of our banking system, health care
and beer while drinking our double-
double Tim Horton's coffee and eat-
ing maple-dipped donuts," he wrote.
Canadian Club,. eh is currently
planning a number of Canadian-
themed events, including a curling
match, a hockey game and an event
celebrating Canadian whiskey,
Kohli wrote.

Though he highlighted the club's
more lighthearted activities, Kohll
acknowledged the S-member orga-
nization also has serious-goals.
"I would like to see U of M advo-
cate to U.S. companies to end dis-
criminatory restrictions against the
hiring of international students,"
Kohli. wrote. "All students deserve
equal opportunities to apply for jobs
with U.S. companies based on their
merit (and not citizenship)."
Still, Kohli said the Canadian
Club, eh appreciates the importance
of cultural exchange between his
motherland and adoptive country.
"We have already apologized for
Justin Bieber and more than made
amends with The Arcade 'Fire and
Drake," Kohli wrote..
