one thing ive noticed about Canadians is that they like to wear patches on backpacks or wherever of the Canadian flag or something.. I guess its because were loveable and we get respect when noticed.

I rarely see these flags. It used to be very popular before my time (in the 70's) when canadians went backpacking to europe. In many european countries (like holland) these canadians were treated like gods. Today not so much.

Today canada is different. We have people who wear headscarfs and turbans, and dont speak english (or french). THey don't get the same attention nowadays in europe. Besides the new generation is unfamiliar with the war and canadas contribution (like in holland, the dutch liked canadians).

I have noticed a lot of canadian women in Jamaica.

Canadian women are confused.

You gotta make sure these are really Canadians.
Some American tourist agencies are known to throw in Canadian flags, pins and such so that their customers can pretend they are not Americans. It's especially true in France, somtiemes n Germany. I was amused on a few occasions to have had chats with "Canadians" who spoke just like they were taken right out of Alabama :)

Haha, i've heard about this. Hilarious.

For all of you 'no culture' haters, have some respect. Canada is a pretty new country, and we haven't exactly had time to develop a well established culture like Poland. From the history books old Poland sounds a lot like Canada today - people from all over, a huge mix of cultures and languages. Just be cause we go for diversity, and not sameness (how it is in Poland today) doesn't mean we don't have culture. If you're interested, a lot of our culture is summed up in some slightly dated Molson Canadian beer ads which you can find on youtube ;)
