File Under Canada: Man takes dog sled to buy beer during Ontario ice storm

You want Canadian stereotypes?

Here’s the quintessential Canadian stereotype as seen this weekend in Port Elgin, Ontario.

A wicked spring ice storm shut down a huge swath of the province, but that doesn’t stop this guy.

This guy took a dog sled to the Beer Store.

Liisa Winfield took the photo of the local gadabout town.

“Canada is the greatest country in the world to live in, regardless of what Mother Nature throws our way,” she wrote on Facebook.

Liquor sales are heavily regulated in Ontario, hence, The Beer Store by the way.

But back to the musher.

Who sounds like one cool cat.

Oh, and the storm?

It brought ice pellets, freezing rain and rain, which caused hundreds of car accidents, left tens of thousands of people without power, flight cancellations and isolating flooding.
