Canadians are often overshadowed by our neighbours to the south, Americans. As a result when we travel we often get mistaken for Americans and that, in plain English, pisses us right off. The rest of the world seems to have a problem distinguishing us from them. As a public service I have constructed a list of ten things that distinguish Canadians from anyone else on the planet.  Here they are:


1)      You have Canadian Tire money in your drawers.

2)      You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

3)      You pronounce the last letter of the English alphabet “zed”.

4)      In your newspaper news takes up two pages while there are six pages of hockey.

5)      You know that the four seasons are: almost winter, winter, still winter and construction.

you know you are canadian when26)      You’ve have rolled up the rim to win.

7)      Everything is measured in metric.

8)      You step on someone’s foot and they apologize.

9)      You can drink legally while still a teenager.

10)  You reject all beers under 6% as for old people or children
