Chowhounds who know both Canada and the US well enough to say something about general eating habits, is this true?

I realize both the US and Canada are big countries with diverse populations and widely varied lifestyles among their residents, but on the whole, what are the differences in the way people eat and relate to food, mealtime, and cooking?
