O.K. the Question is name the one thing you thinks defines Canadian Culture it can be anything from food to sports to clothing you name it.
You only get one thing, no cheating, so make it the most significant one.

I'll start PRIDE

Spread all over God's Green (well, used to be) earth!

Serious! No wonder there are no Canadians in Canada. Every time I go travelling her in China, I keep running into more Canadians than any other foreigner. How's that possible with such a small population.

I'm sorry, but we're just spread way too thin.

Like butter on toast.

I'd never thought of Canada as a diaspora culture until I came to China!

No that's I mean. Don't feel offended, but I have the picture you ACT like the Europeans of the continent, meaning that your political traditions, for example, don't differ that much from (Western) European traditions, or am I wrong?

I support this person's idea!!! Canadians are delusional 100%!!! Canadians see things that aren't there. Canadians exaggerate, come on to these forums and whine uncessarily over small matters and talk about things that totally breaks the rules of basic physics.
Canadians develop mood swings out of nowhere and it could even be in the middle of a canuck's sleep. so random that it makes canadians dangerous.

Canadians think that the whole world is out to get them, thus they always live in fear. This makes canadians extreamly easy to scare away at times.

Wild Canadians, who wonder in the wilderness are extreamly easy to be intimidated. Just push the panic button when you hear a canadian growl. Just make a quick dash, otherwise you will become a popular canadian dish.

UnASSuming...We don't trust anybody, thats why we have kept our population small, to a select group. Most of us never lock our doors, because we can always stop you at the boarder. We are very friendly, if a man leaves home to do his duty, you can be sure his neighbour will take care of his wife, and put his childern to work. We do not discriminate, we make sure that every citizen has free mood elevators, whatever their afflication. We all meet at the clinic, the high and the low. We have better teeth than americans, and they are not capped, look at donald sutherland. And than his kid. We could go on, all the best smiles in hollywood are canadian. Look at the evidence Lorne greene, perry mason, jim carey.

If genetics is the name of the game, we are the future.

Maybe one day you'll get to move up to using crayons, eh? Course that'll depend on your ability to let go of the wide brush you feel compelled to paint all Canadians with.....

250 years ago my ggggg-grandfather came to the colonies to find honest labor. He took a job with the local government, than christmas day george washington crossed the deleware to arrest him. So this is where breeding shows, he than decided to move to Canada. And fifty years later he was proven correct, when america sued for peace and we were declared winners. The only country to ever defeat america, and to further show the fine quality of genetic material in canada, one of the granddaughters married the president and the rest of her relatives came down and burned down her white house, while the rest of my relatives were looting it. From that point on we realize, we don't have to do the work, we just have to collect the dues.

Yes, and as the resident expert of delusional psychosis I say its high time you layed off the recreational drugs and started your regime of "reality pills".

A taxi driver recently summed it up this way; he said that Canadians go through life like they are on opium, they are clueless about how the world really works.

In light of the recent "strippergate" scandal, I have to agree.

You have to be pretty freaking delusional to set up a special exotic dancer program and not understand mafias were destined to exploit it as a means of trafficking women for the purpose of prostitution.

Canadians are delusional.

Need another example?

How about the appointment of Adrienne Clarkson to the position of Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada... you can't get any more delusional than that.
