Is Canadian bacon really bacon?

I do not want to offend any Canadians but is Canadian bacon really bacon?

I think it is “want to be bacon”. What do you think? Would a real JF man eat Canadian bacon? Is it just a fancy name for ham?

Back bacon is traditionally prepared from brined, center cut boneless pork loin. It is much leaner than American/streaky bacon. It is sometimes called Irish bacon or Canadian bacon,[1] but should not be confused with the round, sliced, smoked ham product called "Canadian Bacon" in much of the United States.[2] In some parts of central Canada, back bacon is primarily prepared and sold as peameal bacon. Although it was originally rolled in ground dried yellow peas, it is now almost exclusively rolled in more readily available cornmeal.

According to the History Channel[3], while cabbage has long been a traditional food item for the Irish, using corned beef as a substitute for back bacon first became traditional in the late 1800s. Irish immigrants living in New York City's Lower East Side sought an equivalent in taste and texture to their traditional Irish bacon, and learned about this cheaper alternative to bacon from their Jewish neighbors.

Actually, it comes most commonly from the loin area. So really it is closer to being a porkchop rather than ham.

It doesn't matter what it is, all that matters is that it's the greatest food ever.

Anybody who disagrees...well, you're just plain wrong.

I'm Canadian and don't really care for Canadian Bacon. I like normal, greasy, clog-my-arteries bacon.
