The reason Canadians are so nice is easily explained. Once a year, on the sixth full moon all Canadians gather beneath the stars and perform a ritual that sucks all their meanness and cruelty and places it in Canadian Geese.
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

Last summer I spent 6 weeks exploring the city of Vancouver. I went there with the intention of learning some new skills in a fresh place. I was completely captivated by the beauty of this city, and the constant adventures it provided me.
Flowing from the ground to the top of the Lions Gate Bridge, I aim to show you an unseen view.
Vancouver: Never before have I been in a city that was as able and eager to strike up a conversation.
getting real damn tired of having people yelling “LO OL WTF ARE MILK BAGS LOL”
This is disgusting and you should be ashamed.
calm down friend jesus christ there is nothing wrong with it, it saves space and it produces less garbage and is easy to recycle

Canadian coach helps Russian out
Though Canada was shut out of the medals, the Canadian cross-country team’s head coach received a cheer from the crowd. Justin Wadsworth handed Russia’s Anton Gafarov a spare ski during the first heat of the men’s semifinal.
Gafarov crashed during the heat and broke his ski in the process, and despite being out of the race he was determined to finish the race. As he laboured, Wadsworth ran onto the slope, handing the Russian a spare ski so he could continue the course and cross the finish line.” (cbc.ca)

This is what we call paying it forward.
8 years ago a Norwegian coach did an equally kind act for Sara Renner, one of our Canadian cross country skiiers.
"Norwegian coach Bjørnar Håkensmoen gave Sara Renner a ski pole after hers was broken during the cross-country team sprint at the 2006 Winter Olympics. Renner gave Håkensmoen a bottle of wine as a thank you, while other Canadians responded with phone calls and letters to the Norwegian Embassy. Canadian businessman Michael Page donated 8,000 cans of Maple Syrup to the Norwegian Olympic Committee to show his gratitude.”
Selfless acts of sportsmanship is the most inspiring thing to come out of the Olympics. This makes me proud to be a Canadian but also just proud to be human.
February 13, 2013 - the day Canada’s Parliament debated the zombie apocalypse. (x)
Canada, the only nation discussing the most important issues of our day.
See? Canada has a zombie plan and so should you!
i want to emphasize that this is not from a comedy movie, it literally happened, like in real life, in parliament, between real people
I love how everyone else in the back are just cracking up!
That pun. That man saw his chance and he dived for it.
