Is there somewhere I can go where I can only see the stuff that I'm interested in?
The tag's page itself? As kantos said, you are either on global feed or see things with more than one tag (and possibly badged content, I can't recall if that's enabled by default).
While there are quite a few Canadians here, I doubt you'll get more from this place than from a local news site. Not trying to push you away or depress but it's just a state of things. Look around for other topics to discuss as you see fit would be my best advice.
Also, as someone who's Polish-German, I can tell you that this place is saturated with USA stuff. If it's too annoying to scroll through: filter a tag. That's what I've been doing when something seems to spam my feed.
