This picture describe the Canadian identity because hockey is Canada's national winter sport. Also a lot of Canadians play hockey or are involved in hockey (coaching, watching there kids play). Also Canadians enjoy watching hockey and most Canadians can tell you there favourite team if you ask. Hockey is also thought of as a symbol of Canada because in the winter a lot of commercials involve Canadians either playing hockey or watching hockey or supporting and being involved with a local league. Hockey is also Canada's most successful sport in international competition. We also have really good teams, like our world junior team, usually they either win gold or place high every year because of there dedication and support from there friends and family. Finally I think hockey is a symbol of Canada and part of the Canadian identity because it is a big part of a lot peoples lives in Canada.
