As is often the case with foreign recipes some explanation of ingredients would help. According to Wikipedia:
Canadian bacon, a US name for two different pork products - back bacon and a smoked ham (Also a comedy film and mountain in Washington)
Which of the two products was used in this recipe?

North American's are so used to sweet and over the top spice that I can understand how these would rate as needing some oomph!
