Okay story time:
So my sister is pretty damn poor by Canadian standards, but I used to go over to her apartment on weekends to hang out. I was 15 when this story takes place, my sister was 24. So basically, she has very little money, and I have very little money, but I always showed up to her appt with like 40 dollars, the 40 was expected to feed me, entertain me, and then get me home. Living in a different city from my sister this required a 10 dollar bus ride. So basically we had our weekend of awesomeness, watched a million horror films and essentially lived off of kraft dinner. It was great. When sunday afternoon came, it was time for me to head home, but we were halfway through watching all the "Alien" movies, so we called up our mum and asked if I could come home later. Mom was okay with it, so by the time we finished Alien: Resurrection it was like 10 at night, and so my sister no longer felt comfortable putting me on the subway alone down to Union station so I could catch my bus home. Naturally she came with me. However, we had budgeted my money REALLY tightly, and she was already late on her rent. So I figured it'd be okay if I lent her money for a subway token, and she could just drop me off in Union, and then without leaving the subway area (so she doesn't have to pay again) turn around on the next subway north and get home. This sounded like a great idea, until I was alone in Union station trying to buy my bus ticket, and realized that I didn't have quite enough. I was 70 cents short. It was terrifying.
I'd just about worked myself to tears over being "stranded" (though in hindsight I had enough to go back to my sisters) when the creepiest, and I do mean he was positively grungy, homeless old man approached me. I thought he was about to mug me for all 8 dollars I had. But instead he was really kind, asked me what was wrong, and when I told him I was 70 cents short to get home he just laughed at me, dug around in his pocket and gave me what I was short.

I've loved Canada since I was little.

One time the first day I got there, I was loving the street because it was so green and the air so clean and then an ambulance came and all the cars went to the sides like in Bruce Almighty and that thing glided through.

Ok, this whole idea that canada is nice and everything is ******** . I went to Quebec with my family for a few days. The people there are assholes. There were many moments where people just looked at me as if I were some nut job after showing common courtesy.
A part of me thinks it's a french thing since my cousins studied abroad in france and the people there were no difference.

Canadians don't consider Quebec to be Canada any more, and Quebec is trying to become a quasi-independent country.

There was probably a cop there to make sure people payed... also.. I live in Canada... and We don't have those kind of ticket things... there is ticket machines.. but they're all digital also... you can just walk down the stairs and get on the train and ride for free...
but there might be a transit employee there to check the tickets of passengers coming off the train... but that rarely ever happens..

that's how it works in toronto, we buy tickets/tokens from the collector or a machine, and we have to pay the fare at the collector before we go through the turnstile

you can also get a metropass which is basically a monthly pass for unlimited access to the subway and busses

with all these Canadian posts lately, something is telling me I was born in the wrong country, I fit a lot of Canadian stereotypes yet I was born and raised in Green Bay, WI.

I live in Toronto and this happens often enough. There's no cops there or anything, and the workers dose of most of the time. Canadians are just that nice.

Also, when you have very little to worry about, a good economy, no enemies out to bomb your country, most of the population of the same ethnic and religious affiliation, a large amount of personal income, etc.

It's less about Canadians being nice (i live in the UP, on the border of Canada, they come over to shop at our stores all the time because of the cheaper sales tax, and most of them are annoying cunts) and more about them living in a country that has no truly major problems (compared to other countries) that allows them to be "nicer".

but when it comes down to it, Canadians are just like everyone else, some are nice, some are dicks, some are assholes. Put these Canadians in any other country, and they'd be just like the main populace.
