11 Things You Should Never Say To A Canadian

We say "about" just like everyone else okay?

Posted on

1. "Do you put maple syrup on everything?"

E! / Via chaseaustin.tumblr.com

We probably put it on more things than most but not on everything.

(You're missing out if you don't put it on ham by the way)

2. "How often do you say 'Eh?'"

Via Bravo / Via rtvgames.com

WE DON'T SAY IT AS OFTEN AS PEOPLE THINK

3. "Do you speak French?"

Only 22.3% of Canadians speak French. In fact, most Canadians can't speak French at all despite it being our second language.

4. "Say ABOOT"

NO ONE SAYS "ABOUT" THAT WAY IN CANADA

5. "You have that crack-smoking mayor right?"

Via tumblr.com

Yes. Rob Ford is the Mayor of Toronto. And no, we aren't very proud to say that.

6. "Do you know [insert name]?"

Via tumblr.com

90% of our population may live within 10% of the country within 100 km of the US but Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world with over 33 million citizens. So no, we don't know everyone.

7. "It's always winter there right?"

Via tumblr.com

Depending on where you live, its typically only winter from mid-late November/early December to March(ish), and sometimes we even have mild winters or very little snow (not to say we don't also have freezing winters and tons of snow). Summer can be just as scorching as it is in the US, if not worse.

8. "Your money looks like Monopoly money!"

Via tumblr.com

Our money actually makes it easier to tell the difference between bills.

(And yes the new polymer bills do smell like maple syrup, be jealous)

9. "You must LOVE hockey"

Via gif-database.tumblr.com

Yes, majority of Canadians love hockey (it's a great sport), but our national sport is actually lacrosse. And many Canadians are avid basketball, baseball & football fans.

(Fact: the Grey Cup, aka Canada's Superbowl, is actually older than the Superbowl)

10. "Justin Bieber needs to be deported!"

Via tumblr.com

WE DON'T WANT HIM BACK.

11. "Everyone is polite in Canada!"

We can be just as rude as Americans, thanks.

(Okay maybe we are super polite)
