    I want to know what image Canadian people have.

    No, I'm not using this poll for other purposes besides my amusement.

    Edit: OMG I forgot to put ice hockey in! Major failure

    Edit2: Added a second poll for fun [​IMG]

    Having frequented the internet for a number of years now all I have noted is the "animosity" between those from the US and Canada and found it much like the "animosity" between the French and those from the UK (mainly England) which means it pretty much takes the form of frequent ribbing aside from a few idiots/tabloids (and the first option are normally readers of said tabloids).

    Having been to Canada a few times (mainly west coast) it is pretty much like any other country (although level of technology is up there in the top 10%) I have ever been to but my world view/view on humanity in general has been covered elsewhere.

    I used to think of them as the South Park versions of Canadians.
    Up until I actually went there. I'd say Canadians are pretty unique.

    Canada is only about 30 mins from my house in Ann Arbor, MI. When I think of canada, I think of people with strange bags of milk.

    When I think of Canada, Lasik comes to mind because my dentist once told me that if I wanted to get it done I should have it in Canada because it's cheaper there. I don't know how true this is, it just stuck in my head.

    A lot of other experimental surgeries happen in Canada (ones that don't have FDA approval)

    Right Here
    I'm an anglophone Quebecer, and I can tell you, that your poll requires an all of the above to be accurate [​IMG]

    Funny is young Americans (under 21) coming here and finding out that we serve 18 year olds in bars.

    Funny is Americans finding out we actually DO sell weed (if you have the right reasons)

    Funny is pointing out all the key Americans in the US and reminding the Americans that those people are actually born in Canada.
    Watch Canadian Bacon sometime. You are slowly being assimilated. You will be a Canadian province in time. Resistance is futile.

    Officially French is a second official language. Realistically Cantonese is is our second language.
