Not exactly true, knowing that I'm Canadian (btw, it's an exaggeration that Canadians are too polite)
superfizz: “laughhard: “my boyfriend’s mailbox was buried so far under the snow they couldn’t dig it out…. so he improvised ” That’s the most Canadian thing I’ve ever seen.
I can confirm this is a thing. Every Canadian kid goes on a field trip to the Maple Syrup farm and gets this.
