Sometimes identifying "Canadian" productions gets down to what you want to believe. I know people who will identify a co-production as "American" if they like it, and dismiss it as "Canadian" if they don't. Who knows what the future holds for Canadian genre TV? Maybe on the horizon is a Canadian genre series that isn't just grudgingly set in Canada, but unapologetically so.
Captain Canuck was the first Canadian super hero since the 1940s. And he's the Grand Old Man compared to later characters like Northguard or the American-published Vindicator/Guardian (or whatever he/she's called these days) of Alpha Flight. And this Canada Day, he returns in his very own web series.
Canadian series have a history of pretending they're set in America. Where they are supposed to be set -- well, that's a fascinating topic. In recent years we've also seen what could be called the "soft" Canadian setting. Series which admit they are set in Canada but in a way that a lot of viewers probably wouldn't pick up on.
