What do we know about Canada other than maple syrup, hockey, and the police on horseback? Well, over 100,000 people move to Canada every year and stay there. We will try to discover what is good about this country.
We do a little research and would like to share what we found. Who knows? Maybe we’ll even inspire some of our readers to move to Canada!
What Is The Best Thing About Canada
10. You Can See Bear-Shaped Plates In Canada
Before 1999, polar bear-shaped license plates were the symbol of the northern territory called Nunavut.
Yes, later they started using regular license plates, but you can still find some bear-shaped ones in someone’s old collection.
9. Canadians Love Pranks, And We Have To Admit That They Really Do Have A Great Sense Of Humor
A Montreal resident decided to play with the local police: he made a car out of snow and “parked” it in the wrong place.
We have to give it to him: He even put a windshield wiper on the car to make it look real. Soon after, the police really came, and they found this joke funny too.
8. There Is A Lot Of Oil In Canada
Canada ranks third among the countries with the highest amount of oil, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia.
Nature was very generous with this country: besides oil, there is a lot of freshwaters, many beautiful lakes, and well-protected forests.
7. There Is A Charity Organization Which Supports Women Who Are Seriously Ill By Helping Them With Cleaning
The organization “Cleaning For A Reason” is based in the United States, but also works in Canada.
The goal of the project is to provide free cleaning aid to women focused on fighting a serious illness. This is a beautiful idea. We admire it.
6. Canadian Money Doesn’t Get Destroyed By Water And It Can Reveal Unexpected Secrets
Canadian money is not only unusual, but it is also amazing: First of all, nothing will happen if you put it in the water. You can even wash it off with soap.
The secret is that it is made of plastic instead of paper. Second, Canadian dollars have a hologram hidden inside the maple leaf. It’s not a cash account, It’s not a money bill, it’s more of a video game artifact!
Some people also claim that Canadian money smells like classic maple syrup.
5. Canadians Are Very Hospitable People. In Fact, They Are So Hospitable That They Even Built A Special Landing Pad In Case Aliens Come To Visit
Canadians are welcome to everyone, including extraterrestrials. In Saint Paul, Alberta, there is a landing pad where guests from distant galaxies can easily land their spaceships or any other form of transportation.
4. Very, Very Friendly Police
If you think that this cop wanted to verify your business license, you are wrong. He wants to buy a glass of lemonade for this little girl. How cute is that?
3. They Saved A Forest Twice As Big As Belgium In Canada
Well, when it comes to nature, Canadians get serious and unbreakable. The industry has become a threat to a unique broad-leafed forest, the last of its kind on the planet. It is so big that it is even called “Big Bear”.
So in 2016, they decided to use 15% of the forest in industry and 85% should be left on the planet. “We should have come up with ideas on how to change economic models and save where we live.” This is the Canadian approach to preserving nature.
2. Justin Trudeau is the Prime Minister
What is special about the Canadian Prime Minister? Well where do we start? Everything is great about Justin Trudeau – from his colorful socks to the stylish way he buys groceries like a regular person.
He looks more like a new character than a politician: he practices yoga, hugs pandas, and is a very handsome man, you have to admit that!
1. They Are Very Honest
This pile of exchanges and tickets was on a broken ratchet in one of Canada’s metro stations before workers repaired it.
If something breaks, it doesn’t mean you can break the law and walk for free. At least, that’s what Canadians think.
