People assume Canada is full of friendly people, hockey enthusiasts, and freezing temperatures, but the truth is...those are all true assumptions. Canada is a mystery to those who don't live there, and these pictures prove that certain things only happen in the Great White North. Keep reading for Canadian things that will make you say, "Hey, that's funny, eh?"
1. We Are Respectful
In Canada, you never have to feel embarrassed about what bathroom you choose to go in. This country is very inclusive and allows you to identify however you want.
Canadians have a reputation for being the nicest people, and they prove that with their respect for every gender. As you keep reading, you will see just how inclusive Canadians can be.
2. "Won't Make That Mistake Again."
Someone had to bring their rowdy pet bear to the hotel and ruin the pet-friendly policy for every other bear owner.
At least people can still bring their pet moose or goose.
3. We Have Too Much Money!
Canadians are so kind that doctors are claiming they make too much money. It takes many years to become a doctor and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for school tuition.
If American doctors saw this, they would think Canadians are crazy! Most people would never complain about being paid too much. It must be a Canadian thing.
4. A Gruesome Fight Between Police and Citizens
Instead of police brutality, the cops in Canada join in on the fun. These are the only guns that should be allowed.
This is an assault with a friendly weapon. Canadian police seem very lovely.
5. No Need To Make It Great Again
Canada is a great country, and Canadians aren't afraid to remind you that it does not need improvement.
While they may be friendly and polite, they are not afraid to humblebrag.
6. Interesting Police Uniforms
Police in Montreal were having a labor dispute, so they decided to wear crazy patterned pants instead of their uniform as a protest
Even when they are protesting, they are doing their jobs and making people laugh at the same time.
7. Pesky Beavers
Beavers are an emblem of Canada dating back before the well-known maple leaf.
The most Canadian way to represent Christmas is to have a beaver munching on your tree.
8. 3 Seasons. 1 Picture
Canada is one of the few places you can see spring, summer, and fall all in one image.
The weather is so drastic that temperatures can change many times throughout the day!
9. The Owner Must Have Been Really Ticked Off Because They Didn't Write, "Please"
When people steal things in Canada, they are polite enough to return them like this thief who stole a wheelbarrow.
In Canada, thieves are considerate of your wheelbarrow needs.
10. When The Automatic Gates Are Broken And The Workers Aren't Around, Canadians Still Pay
You know Canadians are honest commuters when they leave the toll on the broken machine.
In any other country, people would look at this situation and think, "wow, a free commute today." The northerners care about honesty and integrity.
11. Police Supporting Small Businesses
This police officer stopped while he was on patrol to buy some lemonade from this little girl's stand.
This is a great way to build trust between police and citizens from a very young age.
12. Be A Considerate Thief
"And if you would like a rhubarb pie recipe to go with the stolen rhubarb, please knock on the door and ask my wife for it."
How are Canadians so nice to people who are stealing from them? To most people, it makes no sense, but it is normal in Canada.
13. Police Doing Their Job Properly
That is the cutest Mountie to ever have existed, and the police were just trying to help document the adorable Weiner.
His name is Crusoe, and he is a celebrity Dachshund that lives in Canada. Here he is celebrating Canada Day and being admired by his loving fans.
14. Why Can't Everyone Be This Nice
Usually, when you lose a mitten, it is gone forever, but not in Canada. Someone will be kind enough to not only hang it up where you left it, but they will also fix it for you.
Seriously, why can't everyone be as nice as this person? The world would be a much more peaceful place.
15. Canadian Pets Be Like...
Does anyone remember the children's book, "If You Give A Moose A Muffin?" That book has come to life in Canada because this moose followed some one home.
Maybe the moose was concerned for this person's well-being, so they followed them home to make sure they got there safe.
16. How Every Police Department Should Start Their Day
Being a police officer can be stressful, so what better way to start the day than spending some time meditating.
This should be mandatory for all high-stress jobs around the world. It would make a major difference in job performance.
17. Meanwhile In Canada
This image is confusing to anyone who isn't Canadian. If you are Canadian and you can explain this, please help.
No one knows what it means, but realistically, how would a T-rex be able to pick up guns or flowers with their tiny arms?
18. That's A Valid Reason To Not Deliver A Package
When the postman comes, and they can't deliver the package because a bear was at the door. Maybe the bear was waiting to get the parcel.
It also could have been a family pet because that is a thing in Canada supposedly.
19. A Friendly Warning
In most countries, if you forget to pay for your parking, you do not get a warning before getting a ticket.
Only in Canada would they be kind enough to realize that everyone forgets sometimes.
20. "Hey, can we come over and use your pool? There is a moose in ours."
This is probably the most Canadian sentence someone could ever text you.
Moose will follow you home and use your pool without permission; they do not care about politeness.
21. This Very Inclusive Grocery Store
For neurotypical people (people who are not on the autism spectrum), going to the grocery store is an easy task that does not require planning. For people who are on the spectrum, going to the grocery store can be stressful and almost impossible. The lights are bright, the music is loud, and the store is crowded. It is a sensory overload.
At Safeway and Sobeys in Canada, stores have started implementing sensory-friendly shopping hours for people who have sensory sensitivity. Everyone should be able to buy their groceries in peace.
22. Happy Canada Day
When you want the statues to have Canadian pride on Canada Day, but you also want to respect the statue.
Maybe they weren't actually being polite, and just wanted their flag back after the prank they pulled. Either way, it was nice of them to leave a sign.
23. You Know You Are At A Rally In Canada When People Stick Their Signs To Hockey Sticks
Canadians are known for their love of hockey and they will find any way to incorporate it into everything.
"Hey guys, once this protest is over, want to go play some hockey, eh?"
24. Friendly Neighbors
If you parked in someone's space, would you leave an apology note? Probably not, unless you are Canadian.
That is the cutest apology spider to ever be drawn.
25. RIP Raccoon
Only in Canada would people make a memorial for a raccoon that was hit when the city forgot to clean it up.
They even wrote nice notes for it, how sweet.
26. Friendly Bathroom Art
Usually, bathroom graffiti is not nice, and has some profane words in it, but not in Canada. You will not find profane words on the bathroom stall.
You can find encouraging messages that tell you how nice your mom is and how proud your dad is of you.
27. Not All Canadians Are Polite
While Canadians are known for being friendly and polite, that does not apply to everything in Canada. Canadian Geese are known for being aggressive and they will attack if you get too close.
The geese clearly didn't get the memo about being friendly and polite to people.
28. "Sir, Do You Know Why I Stopped You, Eh?"
This officer jokingly pulled over a toddler in an electric truck and gave him his first ticket.
The dog looks pretty guilty too. He was probably the one driving but switched places so that he wouldn't be the one getting the ticket.
29. At Least They Left A Note
Typically, a person who breaks into your house wouldn't leave a note that they broke a glass and tried to clean it up; they wouldn't even try to clean the glass up.
These Canadian burglars are too kind. They clean up after themselves and make sure you don't cut yourself on broken glass.
30. Do You Know How Fast You're Going?
Not only are Canadian police kind, but they also have a great sense of humor too. At a police stop in a half marathon, they held up these funny sings.
They also seem super encouraging to the runners with lots of high fives and cheers.
31. "Only Ugly People Litter"
Here is another example of Canadian graffiti. Besides telling you how much your parents love you, the "vandalism" encourages you to stop littering because the world is a beautiful
The earth does deserve respect because it is the only one we have and we should protect it at all costs.
32. The Bus Is Apologizing
When a bus hits your car in Canada, not only will the driver apologize, but the bus itself will also apologize.
After seeing how polite the people and busses are, wouldn't you want to move to Canada?
33. Tim Hortons + Moose= Canada
Tim Hortons is like the Dunkin Donuts of Canada, but better (according to Canadians). The moose is one of the national symbols of Canada. When you have these in one picture you get an iconic Canadian picture.
The only thing that would make this picture more Candian is a hockey player.
34. Thermostat Wars: Canada Style
You must be wondering how it is possible to have snow in half your yard and sun and warmth in the other half. We are wondering how this is possible too.
How is he inches from stepping in snow, yet he is chilling in shorts and flip flops? Canada is a mystery.
35. Why Would You Want To Arm The Bears
Bears are already scary and can easily attack you without weapons, so why would they want to give bears guns?
Bears come preloaded, let's not give them more ways to harm us potentially.
36. A Normal Day In Canada
Police playing street hockey with the neighborhood children is an average day in Canada.
This is a great way to build a positive community with the police and citizens.
37. That Might Be Confusing When Asking For Directions
"Can you tell me where This Street is?" "Yes, you can go down That Street or The Other Street and turn left onto This Street."
What if you lived on the corner and you tried to tell a non-local that you live on the corner of This Street and That Street.
38. Use At Your Own Risk, Sorry
Why would they have an apology sign when there is already a warning. The sign tells you to use it at your own risk, so if you are hurt, that's your fault.
Do you think this is a real sign, or someone put up some clean graffiti?
39. When Team Canada Wins A Gold Medal In Hockey
Canadians love hockey so much that they refuse to let anyone have a bad day when Canada wins a gold medal. They will even pay for your parking ticket.
Maybe it is just this one kind samaritan, but it still makes Canadians see extra nice.
40. Killer Beaver
First, they want to give bears guns, and now beavers have knives; what is happening in the Great White North?
This beaver looks like he got caught in the middle of doing something illegal. "Officer, you misunderstood, my teeth are blunt, so I had to use this knife."
41. Canadian Cops Have A Good Sense Of Humor
When the police bow down to you, you know you are doing something right. This officer knows how to play along with a joke.
Canada: where people are friendly, and cops have can play along for a funny photo op.
42. Canadian Fashion
It's Canadian fashion week, and everyone is debuting the most trendy fashions straight off the lumberjack runway.
Was this the dress code for the bar? The only way to be let in is to wear a red flannel; any other outfit will be turned away.
43. A Canadian And His Snow Goats
"Nothing to see here. I am just out here walking my kids." Where did he come from and where is he going?
Maybe they ate his hat and scarf and they are following him to eat his gloves too.
44. Geese Waiting For The Light
While most geese are rude and aggressive, these two decided to show the Canadian side of themselves and patiently wait for the light to change so they could cross the street safely.
It might be concerning that they are increasing in intelligence so they can turn on humans and over power us.
45. "It's Not Even That Cold."
Maybe this is a nice spring day for this Canadian. He doesn't seem phased by the snow and wind.
Just looking at this picture makes us cold, how is he in shorts and a T-shirt.
