Canuck here.

False stereotypes:

We don't say aboot. (I pronounce it ab-out)
We live in heated houses. Made of wood or brick. (or stone or whatever)
We are not nice. We elected a dick(tator).

Real stereotypes:

Maple syrup on everything.
Hockey and curling 24/7
Pot is smoked so often cops don't even care anymore.
Poutine IS the best food ever. EVER.

If Iran wanted peace, they would have it. They're the ones with a nuclear weapons that they might use on Isreal, who, btw, are our allies. So it was a good idea to close down the embassy, because it shows that we don't support the idea of war, and we do support Isreal.

In Scotland, Glasgow specifically, people pronounce About as Aboot. The same with most "ou" sounds, they're pronounced as "oo" here. Such as Mouse (Being Moose), House being Hoose, etc.

With Canada's stereotype about it, I thought it was just a Northern thing. Guess we're on our own with it.

I don't know what you're talking aboot, but I'm a fellow Canuck eh. You must be pretty darn rich to live in them heated houses, I still have to ride on my moose and live under the snow.

But in all seriousness, tehphire is right.. I honestly don't know where the "aboot" thing came from, but it's pretty damn annoying. I can understand "eh" because a lot of us do say it, but I've never heard "aboot" up here

tv shows made by canadians mostly, though its not as bad as people make it out to be. its more of a slight change of the word due to youre dialect than a blatant disregard for the pronunciation of the word. my information may be wrong, but the best damn north american contractor mike holmes is canadian as is his team and they all have the slight oot sound when they say about

I'm not saying Canadians are wholesome jesus-incarnates who never err. There are a ton of dicks and whatnot too, but the kinda **** that apparently goes on in people's tales are seemingly non-existant.

Saying that nationality has nothing to do with someone's kindness is hopelessly naive. One's upbringing, societal differences and other factors can lead to different personalities.

Also, Quebec doesn't count. They're assholes. Especially the Separatists.

I am actually angry at the fact people are disagreeing with you, because it is so true. Most Canadians think free health care is so much better, but when you find yourself in a life or death situation, in an underfunded ********* hospital, and the only nearest place to receive semi-proper care is an hour and half away then your ******.

Lol I could actually go on all day as to why a privatized healthcare is better. I've got the facts and sources to write a thesis on it. However, it doesn't matter what I say or what the facts prove, people have a stubborn ideology that isn't going to change anytime soon. Interesting how those who have absolutely no idea how politics/economics work are always the ones to speak the loudest.

My deepest condolences to your aunt.

Lol yea isn't always the easiest thing in the world.

I actually majored in both Human Resources and Computer Science (not really relevant lol). Although, I was considering Economics for a while, but I came to realize there aren't many options left with that degree. In fact, the only thing that determines whether you're an accounting, economics, or finance major is just a couple of classes.

Good luck to you though

not sure where you pulled that "fact" out of (the thing about more canadians being treated in the states) , but our healthcare is actually pretty efficient. We DO have equally if not better technology than the states, and I've been treated in hospitals from Canada and the US. You probably do have better doctors, but that would have to do with your higher population.

TLDR: We're equals. Get over it.

Because my dear anonymous friend won't see my reply, I'll take the liberty of replying to you.

You do not have better technology than the U.S. If you do, then it surely isn't used for the public. Our privatized system (with a lot of funding from the U.S. Military) has invented some of the most innovative and advanced medical technologies. Why you may ask? It is because we expect return business. And how do you expect return business? You give your patients not only the best treatment, but use the best tools in order to keep them happy. If they're not happy, then they will move on (in worst cases they'll die and you really won't have a chance to get your return business).

This exact reason is also why we have the best doctors the world has to offer. Doctors are constantly competing to give the best treatment.

Ok let's say you get cancer. Your family can't afford to pay your medical bills because, to paraphrase a meme, they are too damn high. What do you do?
