What's Different in Canada

A Beginner's Guide to the Differences Between the Two Most Similar Countries on Earth

Duo-Tangs

A cardstock folder with a built-in three ring binder is called a Duo-Tang in Canada. This is another example of a “proprietary eponym,” where a brand name becomes synonymous with the category. Duo-Tang.  What a whacky name.
