Maybe we should embrace youth hockey more?
And I'm not going to try to make what is likely a completely unfounded correlation... but maybe this can offer a window into some of the cultural differences. Have you ever seen the portion sizes at Tim Horton's versus American fast food? Yes, Tim Horton's is hardly health food, but perhaps is says something that Canada's most popular restaurant chain doesn't feel the economic pressure to "Super-size" everything on the menu.
I might be forming a false memory, since the pandemic has kept me out of Canada for the past two years, but I seem to recall, sit-down chains in Canada like Kelsey's, St. Hubert, Boston Pizza, Montana's, and The Keg serve far more reasonable portions than their US counterparts. But then again, Swiss Chalet gives you a huge portion of fries.
