If you’ve driven through open range land, you would know what these are.  Apparently they’re named after Canadians in France.

Basically, it’s a term for the metal rods in the road that stop cows passing through.  On my favourite climb in the 2012 Tour - Col du Grand Colombier - there is not much up top except several barrières Canadiennes on each side. 

Apparently, a Potluck dinner is called a Picnique Canadienne as well.  Those crazy French!
