I've never read of anyone making either Canadian or streaky bacon. I've read of folks making what is called buckboard bacon, which I thought they were making as a substitute because the ingredients for streaky or Canadian bacon were too elusive. They always compared it to other bacons, but in a second class sort of way.
And while pork bellies need ordered in special (here), had I known Canadian bacon was made from the common pork loin I would have attempted to make it a long time ago... or at least when I first got my smoker.
