PHOTOS: 10 sexy reasons to visit Canada in addition to Maple Syrup and Caribou

The great land to the north enjoys a reputation for maple syrup, caribou and liberal people saying “ay” but somehow Canada still doesn’t get enough credit as a welcoming and beautiful destination, one that just happens to home a population of great-looking men that look fantastic in hockey jerseys.
