    I'm sure Canadians aren't all alike though
    Very true. They got Aholes just like we do too.
    We got family members who are Canadians who live in rural Alberta. So when we go up we visit a part of Canada most American tourists don't get so see.
    Nice to see such an involved community with hockey being a big part of it.
    On New Year's Eve my Canadian family and members of the community rent the local ice rink. Players from age 5 to 70 all toss their sticks into a pile. One guy will go through and separate into two piles with equal number of short, med , and long sticks. Everybody plays up to midnight.

    Haven't really encountered many persons that I knew were from Canada.

    Also, are you talking native Canadians? Or including immigrants to Canada.

    For example one of my cousins married a guy from Canada and now lives there.


    I expect they're much like people anywhere - a certain percentage of assholes, majority average, a few really good types.

    I find Canadian expats to be less grumpy than American expats. Or maybe less standoffish is a better word, I don't know.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.

    Basically Americans. Just Americans in denial about being Americans. But since they are Americans they are some of the greatest people on Earth by default.

    My experience has been that while most Americans are benevolently ignorant about Canada, most Canadians are malevolently well-informed about America.

    Some of my best friends are Canadian. I wish we lived closer.
