This is a tough one, but post pics of any car that you can link to Canada somehow, be they...
Cars made by Canadian companies

Cars only sold in Canada


Cars only made in Canada


Or cars that are just plain patriotic

Oh, here's more - I actually would have really liked these since I'm an Eastern Europe car nut:
Lada Niva:

Lada Samara

Note the NA-spec reflective side markers - it would have been street legal in the US had they sold it here...too bad!!

Don't forget the BMW M series we get that the US doesn't . Euro spec M series that is and not one but two different models :
1.

1994 BMW Canada imported 45 European-spec six-cylinder M3’s with 282 horsepower engine
The Americans didn’t get that model, much to the delight of Canadian devotees of the marque, but the next year, they did get their own version of the M3, with a detuned engine putting out merely 240 horsepower.


1995 Canadian ///M540i
4.0L, 282hp, 295lb-ft V8
6-Speed Manual
Nurburgring & Adaptive-M suspension
18" M-Parallel Spoke wheels
345mm floating front rotors
///M540i badging and sill-plates
32 made, 0 imported to US
The 32 ///M540is sold in Canada were (apparently) "hand-finished" at Garching next to the M5s.
The larger Euro M5 brakes came standard on the Canadian model M540i. They weren't included on the U.S. 540i Sport model for litigious reasons, i.e. the aluminum floating rotor that requires periodic inspection for cracking. It was deemed US owners would ignore that service and end up maiming themselves and suing BMW
