    I love those old Canadian 'Part of Our Heritage' commercials.

    Re: Your perception of Canadians is?

    This poll is of a piece with a large percentage of Canadians who are constantly looking to be validated by Americans. For some, a Canadian actor, musician, artist isn't good until recognized as good by Americans. For some, our sports teams, particularly those in American dominated leagues, are unfairly ignored. For some, we like to point out all the things we've created that Americans take for granted and adopt as their own.

    It comes from being overwhelmed by a dominant culture next door that sucks the air out of everything. But we're collectively getting better and more confident in ourselves for who we are.

    Canadians enjoy watching and playing ice hockey and eating enormous amounts of poutine which they wash down with C.C. and Coke.

    My husband used to play hockey and I met a ton of Canadians that way, and they were exceptional people. I also know a lot of Canadians because I live in NH and we have French Canadians permeating every orifice in this state - again, really great people. Some of my favorite places to visit are in Canada (Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, Ottawa, Vancouver).

    The only Canadians I truly hate are the ones who inflict the tortures on baby seals.

    We always enjoy Canada. Great people. Your favorite places are also our favorite places. Banff is my wife's favorite. Lake Louise is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I have some great pictures of Canada from Vancouver to Quebec City.

    A few months ago we were in Montreal and Quebec City. We didn't want to leave. French Canadians are very friendly. They love to to laugh.

    I don't know a lot of Canadians personally but my experience with those i have met has been nothing but positive. They're awesome.

    Actually they have lots of guns by anyone else's standards. They just don't shoot each other with them very often at all. Wouldn't be polite, eh?

    Almost every Canadian I've ever met was just awesomely nice. Most were intelligent, industrious and capable.


    I have to make exception for Quebecois truck drivers. I've yet to meet one I didn't want to punch in the mouth.

    I basically think of them as less violent Americans with funny comedians but for the most part ****ty music.
