For ages, Canadians have long been regarded as the “nice guys” of the world. Receiving a flurry of praise on the internet, Canadians have been glorified globally and known to be the peacekeepers of the planet. Though there isn’t a whole lot of criticism that can be skewed in the direction of Canadians, they have been the subject of endless jokes worldwide.
From stereotypes to hilarious cliches, the world has had a very particular image and an idea of who and what a Canadian really is. Becoming a very easy target of witticisms and naturally accepting it as the good-natured people they are, Canadians have become the ones you love to bash. Adding fuel to the fire, there are a ton of examples out there that justify precisely the image that the world has had on Canadians, and the irony of it all is that they’re probably laughing with you about it too.
1. Canadians have long been known to be a people of acceptance, whether it’s multiculturalism or equal human rights. Members of the LGBTQ community have comfortably found a home in Canada, where they are accepted and allowed to be legally married. Pictured here is a moose, one of the staples of Canada, who is evidently a supporter too, holding up a pride flag by its mouth.
2. “This guy in my class said his brother lost his wallet in Canada and someone shipped it back with souvenirs” which clearly justifies the “nice guy” image that Canadians have long been known to have. As opposed to keeping it and all (or some) of its contents, it was given back through a shipment, with an additional bonus gift, just because.
