What do people of the US feel about Canadians ?

Degbeme70-79, M
We`re all c**ts. 馃槵
@Degbeme Awwww,
I never met a Canadian who I didn鈥檛 think was from the U.S. Just couldn鈥檛 tell there was any difference. 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檧锔
@PoetryNEmotion I鈥檓 sorry you found that an offensive statement.
@Axeroberts No. It probably would highlight differences. But for now, I don鈥檛 notice them from those I鈥檝e interacted with.
@Queendragonfly I鈥檓 so glad someone else understands what I mean. 馃槄

You're our polite cousins up north
@Pretzel As polite as Brits? :)
Pretzel61-69, M
@Nimbus they aren't as polite - just reserved and have better accents :)
My state borders next to Canada so we see alot of Canadians visit us and visa versa. We get along great.

I think you're humans and you're probably cold a lot.

I've never heard of anyone who had a problem with them. From everything I've heard and have experienced of them, they seem nice. Their leader is a creep, but no worse than what we are currently afflicted with.
@AbbeyRhode Sounds positive 馃憤

Arrogantly, I often thought Canada was an extension of the US. I learned otherwise visiting Toronto in September. Less tense and angry. More accepting and polite!

I suppose they鈥檙e like people anywhere, some nice, some not so nice. I think the culture there is a bit better than here though. Seems like less angst and hatred.

@Zaphod42 Awwwww :)
SOME of the Canadians I've met on SW are very nice, and SOME SW Canadians are belligerent communists. I suppose that there would HAVE to be a great many Marxists there for someone like Trudeau to be elected.

I've been to Canada three times.

In Montreal, my family and I were taken right away and seated in a restaurant, which was nearly empty, but when a Vietnamese family showed up, they were asked if they had reservations, and when they said they did not, the Maitre d' told them that ALL of the tables were reserved. (Blatant lie). There was obvious racial bias.

I've also written on SW, (temporarily), to far western Canadians who were deeply biased against Native Canadians. There is a shameful history there.
@4meAndyou Americans have an equally shameful history. Here is a copy of a mural that was painted on the wall in the Massachusetts town where I typically spent half my year.

I usually think...I would hate spending winters in Canada. It sounds so cold and snowy! But other than that, it sounds like a nicer place to live then here. I've liked every Canadian I've met. Even the ones with such thick french accents that I couldn't understand a thing! 馃槄

And they are great neighbors to have. No complaints.
Speaking as a Canadian, I like most Americans. Stop stirring the pot, Nim.
@PoetryNEmotion Good to hear :)

Aussie here. I spent some time in both countries this year and thought that the people in both were great.
I avoided talking politics, though....

We get a lot of them here in Florida every winter. Personally I think they are very friendly and nice people. 馃檪

My mother-in-law was from Canada, and she was a lovely lady. My feelings about Canadians are positive.

We really aren't that much different than each other.

Like differences between different regions of the US and different regions of Canada aren't any more or less than the differences from each side of the 49th parallel.

Like someone from the NE-US would be just as different as someone from Ontario to someone from Arizona. Someone from Maine is just as much an odd duck to me as someone from the Maritimes up there.

The differences are what is typically a regional difference than an international difference. Not saying we're exactly alike but more similar than different.
@Lilnonames tastes great with this....
