How to Spot a Canadian

Tracking down Canadians one toque at a time.

About this Site...

Canadians are a tricky people to distinguish. They are often able to blend into a society and appear to be American, British, French or any other number of nationalities. This site will provide you with some tips and tricks to help you recognize a Canadian no matter where you are.

 

This site is for entertainment purposes only. "How to Spot a Canadian" is filled with humour, satire, hyperbole, parody and sarcasm. All statements here should be taken with a grain of salt or a bottle of maple syrup, whatever the case may be.

Sorry! I want to bring the site back though!

Sorry everyone! I know it's very Canadian of me to apologize, but I am very sorry for basically abandoning this site.

I'd really like to bring it back in the near future. I'm going to start thinking of new ideas and hopefully the blog posts will resume on a regular basis in the near future.

If you have any suggestions for good ways to spot Canadians, post them in the comments! With your help we can track down and identify as many Canadians as possible.

    -They worship their hockey team flag more than their own (for french canadians at least)

    -They laugh at Canada jokes in American movies (The "we're not in Canada" line in Iron Man II, for example)

    -They LOVE Crosby, but only during the Onlympics. When hockey season comes around, they (politely) "shoo" him in the stadium since he plays for an American team. In his own hometown.

    -Canada's the only country where the evening news gets delayed to announce the Hockey results

    I was surprised you didn't post something around the Olympics about Canadians screaming out for joy no matter where they were when they heard lol

    Yay! I'm so happy you are going to keep this site going! I check it every day to see if there are any new laughs to be had. Hahah so please keep at it!

    As for ideas you could talk about:

    -The Olympics
    -Pierre Trudeau or other liked/hated PM's
    -Passive aggression (Every Canadian does it.)
    -Wanting to drive a zamboni across Saskatchewan...
    -Canadian Songs maybe like "Canadian please" or "Canadian idiot"
    -Provincial stereotypes? They are always fun...
    -How when American’s spell things without the “U” It grates on your nerves...
    -Umm History things? Maybe like the tulip festable...?

    I dunnno this is harder than it looks. ^___^; Good luck.

    Pretty sure that's the British that call it a park-aid. We call it a parking garage.
