2. Time Hortons is the life blood of Canada, they are Canada
3. Shoes should be taken off at the door or people will think you were raised in a barn
4. Cold
5. Sorry and Aye are two words to be sprinkled over every conversation
6.Gas stations aren't at exits but at strange little rest areas along the way
7. Cold

You don't take your shoes off in Tim Hortons....

Did you even question why you were the only one without shoes in Tim Hortons.

We have to put gas stations at rest stops because otherwise there wouldn't be enough along the highway for people traveling long distances.
It is a bit cold for 7 months of the year yes, but from May until September it can actually be quite nice, it was 23C (73.5F) today, and in late July and early August is regularly gets up to 35-40C (95-104F).
Tim Hortons is indeed our life blood, we love that stuff.
Shoes are taken off so you don't track mud and dirt through the house, it's simple hygiene.
"Aye" isn't a word, but I believe you mean "Eh".

it's not based on where you live regionally, like European countries which have distinct cultural lines. depends on the culture, so I'm sure there are plenty of people in Texas that do frown upon shoes in the house. I know sometimes in florida they don't want shoes solely because there is mud everywhere.

I live in Sweden and I've never encountered a household where people wear shoes indoors. Every house has a small rack to put your shoes on as soon as you enter. If anyone just waltzed in without taking their shoes of people would probably assume you were drunk or borderline retarded. It just doesn't make sense to me to have shoes indoors, you walk around all day outdoors protecting your feet from filth, only to drag it all into your house when you get home.

I absolutely despise wearing my shoes anywhere. I only do so where it's needed. If I could, I'd walk around barefoot. In my own house, I never wear shoes. I never wear socks. I don't even like my guests to wear shoes or socks.

It just looks so uncomfortable to me.

most places i go its strange to not wear shoes inside.If visiting for a decent period of time, say anything more than an hour or so, wait a few minutes, then take them off. its considered to be the acceptance of hospitality and good nature. the phrase "take your shoes off and stay a while" is used to imply hospitality and is an invitation to let the dogs loose.

Many do, it mostly depends on the cultural heritage of your parents and their strictness. i.e. Many families with parents of asian and islander origin won't wear shoes in the house.

It's more of a situational thing. Like it's polite to take them off at the door if you're going to stay for some time, or if they're dirty. Although it's not really frowned upon if you're not staying inside too long and you're not tracking anything.

The salt is put on the roads to melt the ice. In northern areas where there is a lot of snow and/or rain, people tend to take their shoes off because of the snow, salt, slush, and mud that gets on their shoes. In drier, southern areas, people tend to leave their shoes on in the house because they don't dirty them outside, and they never have to wear big clunky boots.

However, judging by the number of countries that dislike America/don't have the best relations with America it probably wouldn't stay yours for long. China would jump at the promise of oil (given that Canada has the 3rd largest supply in the world) Russia would come over the North, Quebec is pretty much the only peace left of the former French empire, as a commonwealth nation that gives Canada support from all former English colonies. And don't forget, attacking a country such as Canada would piss everyone in the world off even if they don't have relations with that country.

I don't think anybody would actually do anything physically against the U.S. if they invaded Canada. At least as of in this point in history, the U.S.A is capable of repelling virtually all overseas invaders with its massive Navy and Air Force. The best a country like China could do would be to go further south than the American Navy is willing to commit, and make landings in South or maybe Central America. They would then have to travel North hugging the land and invade Via Mexico.

But America loves Canada, Canada best hat 2013.

Taking a closer look at that article (Yes I know it's parody), I have to say something of that kind isn't entirely unrealistic. Not that they'd do it militarily, just take resource rights and establish military bases through a bunch of one-sided "treaties". It'd be easy to do with a Conservative Canadian government sympathetic to the US, but even without that, it's not like we're in any position to refuse. And once they basically own the place, why bother to even invade?
Sorry if I seem pessimistic, but in terms of power in Canada-US relations, making jokes about Americans online is pretty much the best we can do.
