Canadians Are Hilariously Confessing Their Most Un-Canadian Traits

"I don't give AF about hockey."

It all started with one woman's confession about poutine.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I don't like poutine.

Because of Krista's brave (but unforgivable) declaration, others felt free to unburden themselves of the shameful un-Canadian things they do, say, and feel.

Some admitted things that many Canadians know all too well.

#ImABadCanadianBecause i took french for seven years and i dont even know how to say a sentence

They shared potentially unpopular feelings about popular Canadians.

When I hear the music for Coach's Corner, I change the channel. #ImABadCanadianBecause

#ImABadCanadianBecause I think maple flavoured anything is gross, and Gretzky is a douchebag.

A lot of folks declared their disdain for Canadian staples such as Tim Hortons.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I think a double double is a waste of coffee. Scratch that, I think Tim Hortons is a waste of "coffee"


#ImABadCanadianBecause I'm not sorry, and I'm not sorry that I'm not sorry


#ImABadCanadianBecause I hate cold weather.


#ImABadCanadianBecause I don't give AF about hockey

It turns out Krista isn't the only poutine hater.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I don't like poutine and I never learned how to skate RS

Yes, that's Juno-winning singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith. He never learned to skate! And he signs his tweets RS!

Some folks hate hockey and poutine.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I don't give a crap about hockey and poutine disgusts me.

Disgust is such a strong word...

Or even maple syrup!

#ImABadCanadianBecause I hate Maple Syrup that come from maple trees... I prefer Aunt Jemima

But this food one is totally acceptable.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I like regular bacon over Canadian bacon.

Some brave souls stood up for Nickelback.

#ImaBadCanadianBecause I think Nickelback is decent.

Others confessed their hate for some Canadian bands.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I think the Tragically Hip are overrated.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I don't like RUSH

Just FYI this cop wanted to confess that he doesn't own a parka.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I don't own a parka. Sorry.

Maybe he's more of a peacoat kind of guy?

But people are also using the hashtag to talk about serious issues that they feel many Canadians don't acknowledge.

I talk about stolen indigenous land. #ImABadCanadianBecause

#ImABadCanadianBecause I recognise that Canada is a white supremacist country & don't try to pretend this is some global utopia 😒💁🍁

More than a few folks wanted to confess what they've been telling Americans about life in Canada.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I told people from the U.S. that we live in igloos, have snow snakes and travel by dog sled team & they believed me

#ImABadCanadianBecause I once told an American friend about our eskimo president Nanook and our national dog sled team, and she believed it!

Hmmm... kinda seems like both of you deserve a time out for this one.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I told an American friend that we had trained attack beavers at the border, and to never leave the car at night.

An American also joined in.

#ImABadCanadianBecause I'm from Ohio

And then there was this:

#ImABadCanadianBecause I love @realDonaldTrump
