Why are geese called Canadian geese?
Their real name is Branta Canadensis, but seeing as they're geese,why not call them Canadian geese? Both names work, really. Actually the common name is Canada goose, not Canadian. Heck, those gooses might be from the U.S. And if they are hatched on Canadian soil then they are Canadian Canada geese if you must. Also, there are several sub-species of this beautiful brant. Why not web search "Canada goose, sub-species"? Have you ever seen geese flying in their distictive 'V' formation and wondered why one side is longer than the other? Because the longer side has more geese in it.

What is the difference between a goose and a Canada goose not the white ones in either case?
There are very many species of geese and even more domesticated forms/breeds of geese, so eaxctly what you mean is not clear. Geese as a whole are divided into two families - grey and black - Latin names anser and branta. There are also some distantly related birds called sheldgeese, plus the cereopsis - from a variety of genera. Canada geese are a branta species, domesticated geese are anser.
