Why do Americans hate Canadians so much? I have yet to meet an American who thinks that Canadians are not bad people who only do stupid things. I've met people from Europe who don't make light of Canada, seems to be most Americans...

Being Canadian I find it difficult to even talk about my home country because it inevitably ends up being a 'shit-on-Canada-for-no-real-reason' festival. I mean what's so great about America???

Any fellow Canadians find that Americans are rude and ignorant of our culture (which isn't too far off from their own might I add...)?

You're generalizing two nations. Never a good thing to do. On a realistic level Canada and US society is pretty much exactly the same. Just Canadians are far less patriotic.

We love Canada here in England. I think it's probably just the Americans then, a nation so intelligent that they elected George W Bush twice...

Lots of Canadians I have talked to are not too fond of the states either and others love it. Personally I enjoy you candies. Just don't surround yourself around ignorant people.

It's not generalizing as much as making an observation about what I've dealt with ever since I moved to the States 12 years ago. While society is similar, the Americans think that we are all about hockey, maple syrup, beavers, and saying 'aboot', 'eh?', and 'dontcha know?'. These negative stereotypes (while some places of Canada my adhere to some of them...) are typical exhibits of rudeness from anyone who isn't Canadian. My point is that Canada is not too different from America, England, or (if you're from Quebec as I am) France but we are still treated like we are an entirely different species of nothing but quirky behaviour and goofy accents.

You do realize that those are far more often than not jokes, albeit tired out and overused ones, right?

Then again I've lived here my whole life so I dunno.

lol, i talked to some american kids about this, they said canada was bad because they dont have the dudesons, jackass, obama, and all the sweet amusement parks, beaches, food, famous people and stuff like that. But canada has banks that don't crash, a less criminally active place, and a government that is in much less of a debt than the US government (dont get pissed off at me if im wrong, its jus what i've heard so simmer down)
but they said canada was disgusting because most people are uncircumcised
well atleast if i get a random boner while in some jeans, the skin on my head isn't being assaulted when i move around because its completely exposed...

i don't know how you can find the time to post here with all the maple syrup harvesting, hockey training, and beaver trapping that you, being the good canadian that you are, should be doing. seriously though, those are all jokes. I'm black, but since i'm not big and intimidating and hang out with mostly white kids and i hear stupid racist jokes and stereotypes all the time because people think they can get away with it. but at the end of the day none of them apply, and i know that. you're too uptight man...chill

I've honestly never made fun of Canadians and I think they're really cool people in general. I just wish our country wasn't full of jackasses. Plus Kenny vs Spenny is a Canadian show and that's one of the greatest tv shows of all time, imo. I also like Canadian women better than American women, so there's definately no hate from me.
#25
The only good things from Canada would be Neil Young,Trailer Park Boys, and Crown Royal.

But those three things make Canada as good as any country.

I don't know about the people and culture but Canadas nature is amazing. That makes it a kickass country if you ask me. Now stop being butthurt. If anyone should be complaining it should be Americans. I can't say I've heard anything positive about them in a long time and my peers and I joke about them on a daily basis in a far from light hearted way.

It's because you live in Arizona.

I've never heard anyone anywhere talk smack about our neighbor upstairs (Canada).

Thank god most people don't even know Slovenia exists. Otherwise we would be making fun of your std rate, no?

Canada is also good for rape seed oil. Or canola oil, I suppose.

Why would you care what a bunch of retard americans say? In the eyes of the rest of the world americans are near the bottom as far as respectable cultures go. Iv heard from people who have been to both canada and America and they say that canadians are friendly honest people, whereas americans are more douchey and in a lot of cases stupid.

America invented rock and roll.

And the Brits made it interesting/relevant.

By copying American blues musicians that were doing it better 20 years before? If anything the Brits made rock and roll a cliché.

Canada is also good for lumber.

Blues from the people stolen from Africa? If anything, America turned soulful communication into a sell-out capitalist minefield.

I can play this game, too.

The blues is purely American. And I was only jesting, mind you. I hate America as much as you do.

On topic: I however do not hate Canada. I don't think anybody hates Canada, Ts.
