We don’t know many things about Canada except their politeness, hockey games, “sorry”, and police riding on horseback. But have you ever wondered what’s so special about this country?
And why no one would ever want to leave it? According to a survey, more than 100,000 people move to Canada every year, and apparently, they never regret their decision.
It is time to dig deeper and figure out what’s so special about Canada, and other countries should probably start taking notes. Whatever secret that country has, we need some of it, too.
However, if you need to feel special, witness great nature, and maybe learn a little politeness, then book a ticket to Canada immediately. Trust me, you will love it.
Bear shaped license plates
Back in 1999, these license plates were the northern territory’s symbol. That area is called Nunavut. Unfortunately, they don’t use them anymore, but we still can see them around driven by people who have old-fashioned cars.
Just the fact that someone actually thought of letting people put bear shaped license plates on their cars is mind-blowing and amusing. By the way, you can purchase these plates from eBay for only $30, how awesome!
They have a great sense of humor
Canadians not only have a great sense of humor, they also love pranks, all of them! Once, a Montreal resident wanted to prank local policemen, so he created a car using only snow as if it was “parked” on the wrong side.
That man was so talented because he was able to make the windshield wiper with snow to make the car look real, and it truly did. When the policemen arrived, they weren’t mad or insulted; they actually found it very funny.
What would your local policemen do?
Canada has a lot of oil
If you think that Middle East countries are the only countries with most oil, then you thought wrong. Canada takes the 3rd place amongst the countries with the biggest amount of oil. Canada is right after Saudi Arabia being in the second place, and Venezuela at the first place.
Besides the oil, nature is very generous with this country. Whether you like the ocean, the forests, lakes, the mountains, or anything that has to do with water, nature, and green lands, then you will definitely find it in Canada.
Canadian money is full of secrets
“Well, money is draining our souls and making us miserable, so why don’t we make them fun?” once a Canadian man said -or I think he did- and since then, they created dollar bills that are not only unique but also, unbelievable. So let’s start counting their wonders, shall we?
– Water doesn’t ruin their money. In fact, you can wash them with soap and put on them your favorite cologne.
– The Canadian dollars have hidden hologram inside the maple leaf.
– They are very economical, secure, and so much better for the environment.
– They are able to stretch.
– Their dollars literally smell like classic maple syrup!
They are so hospitable, even for aliens
Canadians welcome everyone, it doesn’t matter where you come from or what your beliefs are. If you want to, you are very welcome to visit and live in Canada. In fact, it doesn’t even matter if you were a human. Surprisingly, Canadians built a special landing pad for aliens in case they wanted to come hang out. Yes, they did it for aliens!
This landing pad is located in Saint Paul, Alberta and it was built to ease the landing of the spaceship, UFO or any transportation they are using. But yet, aliens still don’t want to visit. What more do you want, galaxy species?!
Worldwide, policemen are known to be harsh, cold-hearted, and mean. Except for Canada, the policemen are not only polite, they are very humanist and thoughtful. They tend to not let the nature of their career ruin who they truly are.
Once a little girl was selling lemonade at the front door of her house, then a policeman made a stop and walked up to her. No, he didn’t want to check her business license, and no he didn’t tell her to change location. He only wanted to buy a glass of lemonade from her. How cute is that?
They help each other
In Canada, you will rarely find people who are self-centered or selfish when it comes to giving a helping hand to those who need it. Here is a story to prove it:
Canada is known to have very cold winters, so one time, the school students from Halifax thought of people who can’t afford to buy clothes for their kids during these freezing days.
So, they put very good quality coats and clothes on posts in the street, and then wrote a note: “For those who need it”. If everyone was like these Halifax students, the world would be a better place.
They saved a huge forest
Canadians take their nature very seriously. The industry was becoming a huge threat to unique broad-leaf forest, and it is the only one left on the planet. Its name is the Great Bear and it is truly very big, it is twice as big as Belgium.
In 2016, they made a decision to save it without the need to lose their industry. So, they used 15% of the forest for that, and the 85% was saved for the earth.
Well, at least there are some people who are considering us, too.
Justin Trudeau is their prime minister
Most people wonder what’s so great about Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada. Alright, count me again, ladies and gentlemen:
– He shops for food in chain supermarkets like any other person.
– He personally went to the airport to welcome Syrian refugees and gave them coats.
– He is the only one who can flirt with the Queen.
– He is already making changes when it comes to climate changing.
– He is committed to achieving justice for disappeared indigenous women.
– He wears colorful socks.
– He is very humble.
– He is very handsome… you have to admit that! And the list goes on, and on…
When Canadians get bored, they don’t sit home spying people on social media like we do. They actually go outside and cheer people up.
