I’m Canadian, born and bred, and proud of it. I’ve noted here some observations I’ve made about us.

  • We’re very polite. If you run into our new car we may say oh my goodness, are you ok?
  • Contrary to public belief, Canadian soldiers do not torture people in Afghanistan, we’re too nice, we have other people do it
  • We really like taxes cause it pays for all the good things we like , like universal healthcare and roads
  • We are kind to celebrities, we’ll  ignore you in an elevator so we don’t get embarrassed asking you for an autograph
  • We are very polite waiting for a bus. We make long line-ups single file so as not to crowd each other.
  • We like queues for events. Canadians like to pitch tents, have a party so they can be first in line to buy TV’s at Best Buy but as long as we’re ahead o f you we’ll let you cut in line
  • Unlike other countries we like our immigrants. They bring skills and benefit us. We wish they could do the jobs in Canada that they did in their home country.
  • We make the best Ice Wine. They served it at Obama’s Nobel Prize dinner but we don’t brag, we’re very humble.
  • We like the environment and wish we could follow the Kyoto Accord on Climate Change but don’t because we promised we wouldn’t upstage our best friends, America, and embarrass them.
  • Canadians like to eat Burritos, Lathaks, Spaghetti, Kimchi, Kabobs, Yuanxiao dumplings, Smorgasbord, Gazpacho, Rastafarian Dishes, Sushi, Schnitzel, Bibingkas,  Syrnyk, Chicken Paprikash, Dolmades, Dublin coddle, South African Biltongm, Pipikaula, Portuguese Sweet Bread, Btithara Appa (Egg Hoppers) and Bubble & Squeak. We love all of our cultural heritage. Heck Canadians will even eat Scottish Haggis.
  • We feel sorry for Tiger Woods because he made a mistake and everyone should have a second chance, we’re Canadians after all.
  • We love our politicians, God Bless them, they tax the heck out of us with GST, PST, HST and whatever #&*%ST they can find but they do it for our own good, thanks guys in Ottawa.
  • We like our Canadian beer because it has more alcohol than the beer made by our friends in America
  • Our border guards just got guns because they were embarrassed when US border guards chased bad guys into our country and our border guards ran away. Now our guys feel safer with guns to protect themselves.
  • Please don’t ask us to tell a lie, it’s against our nature, we do fib on occasion though.
  • We like Nanaimo Bars because they taste great and can only be made in Canada – so I lied!
