Or open Tim Hortons.

I can't stand Tim Hortons, maybe because everytime I go there every single person in the store is Indian and can't understand or pronouce a single english word

Is it true that Canada kicked a lot of ass in WWII ?
#38 to #33 - winternetz (08/16/2014) [-]
ya it is, canada was the only one of the 5 normandy beaches to reach its objectives.
User avatar #91 to #33 - thesoulless (08/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, the Canadian military was (and still is, if I remember correctly) one of the best trained in the world, despite being a bit behind in terms of equipment, and they're vicious fighters.

I read a lot of WW2 history, and it absolutely baffles me how many people don't realize how big a role Canada played in the war. They put nearly half their male population in uniform.

im so sorry but sadly you didnt do all that much... but then again neither did america butt as a european i am forever grateful that the lives of your young was sacrificed so that i didnt have to learn russian... thanks and then i can thank the sovjets for not having to learn german and the italiens for sucking at war, the polish for being badass together with greece.... abd the arabiens / indians for doing a great job in stopping the african offensive.

MFW I read your comment.

america didn't do that much in the war eh? no your right, risking our merchant ships to bring them weapons and supplies so it wouldn't starve, taking the two most heavily defended beaches at normandy, and basically making the effort to take back france and push out the nazis possible, no thats hardly anything. the brits had it totally under controll

i remember looking back in my history book in high school when we were going over wwII,
i think the extent of the coverage Canada got was along the lines of
"oh, and the Canadians took the juno beachhead"

#51 to #42 - ohemgeezus (08/16/2014) [-]
Whenever Operation Overlord is talked about it's always about Omaha. More Allied died on Omaha than on the other 4 put together, nearly twice as many as the other 4 put together. Nothing to mention about Gold and Utah, Sword was easy then met with heavy resistance, and Juno was tough at first then artillery cleared most of it. Omaha was a bitch.
#43 to #42 - trainalf (08/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, that is the sad truth. They were in from the very beginning, shipping men and equipment to Britain, and fighting in Italy before Normandy began. They helped protect over 100,000,000 tons of supplies as it crossed the Atlantic. They were just as big a player as any of the other powers, and yet they barely get a mention.

It doesn't matter Canada doesn't seek or need constant admiration and validation like the US, we know who we are.
User avatar #110 to #42 - critality ONLINE (08/16/2014) [-]
Which is funny, because in my canadian social studies class we only ever really went over Juno

Canadians like Russians make great soldiers.
You live your life in a frozen wasteland, hoping that this isn't the year your balls freeze and have to be cut off.
There are bears everywhere. And even herbivores are out to get you.
Suddenly there is a call to war, and you get to take it all out on someone. And what do you have to lose? Getting old with freezing balls?
#86 to #25 - gerfox (08/16/2014) [-]
Russians aren't necessarily good soldiers because they won World War II. They didn't win because of the level of their soldiers, but because there were so many of them - and they simply didn't care how many died. In Russia humans are after all a renewable resource. If they had put up one Russian per German the German professional soldiers would've beaten the asses of the farm hands, factory workers and hobos fighting for Russia. If I'm not mistaken, WW2 is the only war that Russia has won since at least before the Russo-Japanese War of 1905. (If you don't count internal struggles like Chechnya) (They lost that one, WW1, Finland and Afghanistan)

I've heard/read a lot of good things about the military effort by Canada, New Zealand and Australia during the war tho.
#74 to #25 - Rascal (08/16/2014) [-]
Uh, Russia took more than six times as many casualties as the Germans did, and lost to the Finns. I wouldn't even call them mediocre soldiers, more like awful. Canadians are hard men, though.
User avatar #78 to #74 - freakyorange (08/16/2014) [-]
They took six times more casualties because their strategy was to keep throwing soldiers at the bad guy until they stopped twitching.

Also the battle of stalingrad. That was a big one.

It's a short a fan made with source film maker. It was it the contest for a Saxxy award, but I'm afraid I've forgot the name. It had something to do with the wizard guy.

This post confuses me, surely it should be Britain chucking Canada into the mix... As seeing as Canada was still technically under British power until 1982.
User avatar #55 to #41 - Crusader (08/16/2014) [-]
Technically, yes.

Though it's like when you first move out and your parents still have the contract on your phone and cosign on your loans, you are free to make your own choices but have to check with them on some things.
User avatar #68 to #41 - ericzxvc (08/16/2014) [-]
Only technically, Britain had no power over Canada in that regard during WW2, if they had tried to use their power Canada would have refused and declared independence. When Britain declared war on Germany Canada waited before independently deciding to declare war as well. Canada wasn't told to go to war by Britain, it chose to.

**** YEAH

Canada didn't wait till the end of the war to join in.
#80 to #28 - derksuls (08/16/2014) [-]
And they say american education is bad..
User avatar #29 - joeofold (08/15/2014) [-]
didnt Canada join near the beginning of the war, before America.
#35 to #29 - stephenvtwentyfive (08/16/2014) [-]
Canada declared war with the British when Germany invaded Poland, Canada also declared war on japan before the USA because Japan invaded hong kong.
#52 to #35 - Rascal (08/16/2014) [-]
WOAH WOAH WOAH HOLD YOUR HORSES.

A country would declare war on another country because that country invaded another country?

hurr durr must be for oil.

That's exactly how American invasion on Iraq started. **** all you potheads

The thing is, that's kind of what happened. Both wars.

We were some mean ************* .
User avatar #50 to #4 - enkmaster (08/16/2014) [-]
The Canadians were known as the best trained, most effective fighting force the Allies had in the latter half of WW1. Thanks to Ypres, The Somme, Passchaendale, and Vimy Canada had a lot of respect both from its allies and its enemies. Hell, the Germans considered the Canadian Corps the "Storm Troopers" of the allied forces, a role we continued to play in World War Two, specifically with the contributions of the Black Watch regiment.

Canada, **** yeah!
User avatar #16 to #4 - tealcanaan (08/15/2014) [-]
I think all the soldiers were mean as **** back then, I mean the marines got the name Devildogs for a reason in ww1, and lunatics released to fight in Japan.
User avatar #22 to #16 - killerliquid (08/15/2014) [-]
Can't forget about that guy that stormed a beach using only a sword and bagpipes
#56 to #22 - jacksipian (08/16/2014) [-]
that guy that got all of his men killed so he could get some bragging rights? yeah, **** that guy.
User avatar #58 to #56 - killerliquid (08/16/2014) [-]
We are talking about lunatics after all
User avatar #60 to #58 - jacksipian (08/16/2014) [-]
yeah, but people tend to glorify him without knowing how terrible a person he was.
User avatar #61 to #60 - killerliquid (08/16/2014) [-]
True that
User avatar #23 to #22 - tealcanaan (08/15/2014) [-]
He was a scot right?
User avatar #24 to #23 - killerliquid (08/15/2014) [-]
Not sure but most likely.
User avatar #37 - slenderbro (08/16/2014) [-]
Canadians - The original storm-troopers, and knew how to aim.
User avatar #44 to #37 - riddles (08/16/2014) [-]
yea the reason was we followed so close the the creeping barrage that some of our guys got killed but this also gave the axis no time to counter it. also only other country but russia who could fight efficiently in the cold
