I think the term was only used by English-Canadians living in Quebec,the saying came about because pea soup was a traditional popular dish amongst French-Canadians.At first it was a very racist saying,it came about during WWII,Most French-Canadians were anti war,this was translated by the English as them being cowards,combine the 2 the dish and coward,if someone called you a peasoup it was just about the worst insult that one could give.Over time it was used in a general sense by everyone and didn't have the same impact, and the 2 words were transformed into one word which is "peesue" ,its part of the language now and mainly used by little children.The majority of people don't even know the origins of the word ....Next time you go grocery shopping and you see a can of "Habitant Pea Soup",think about me ;)
