** Though to be fair, for a career minded CIA officer, Canada's friendly relationship with the United States does make intelligence operations somewhat rare.

* Subverted in ''Series/DueSouth'' in which all of Canada's officials are irritated by how polite and upstanding Mountie Benton Fraser is. It's also [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] that the red tunic is not everyday Mountie wear, and he's choosing to wear a dress uniform at all times.
** Or the Brown Uniform. Chicago Holiday has him wearing a Dress Uniform which consists of a different belt from his Sam Browne, though technically he should have been in Mess Kit for that occasion (which is almost exactly the same as most Commonwealth Military Mess Kit, with the addition of two RCMP badges on one's chest).
** Also not forgetting that the RCMP are not Canada's only police service. In fact, they're more equivalent to the FBI. The city of Ottawa alone has no less than six different police services (or five, depending on if you believe the City Council Bylaw Police count): City Council Bylaw Police; Ottawa Bus Service Police; Ottawa City Police; Ontario Provincial Police; Military Police; Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Were it not for the fact that Ottawa is the capital and therefore is filled with Diplomats, the RCMP would not need maintain a presence there except for cases similar to ones where the FBI would be involved in America.
** In real life, sometimes the RCMP aren't that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Dziekanski_Taser_incident polite and upstanding]]. And during the RedScare the RCMP did many, many things that were questionable. Such as inventing a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit_machine "Fruit Machine"]] to try to identify homosexuals, whom they felt could be blackmailed by the KGB to reveal state secrets. This is part of the subversion on Due South, since the reason Fraser was not-quite-exiled to Chicago involves the Mounties being just as corruptible as the more stereotypical DirtyCop forces, despite the boy scout stereotype.

* Creator/TerryPratchett decreed that no part of the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' should resemble any part of North America. However, the canon expanded to include Red Indians (''Discworld/ReaperMan''), a suspiciously NewOrleans-like Delta (''Discworld/WitchesAbroad'') and a pre-conquest Mexico (''Discworld/{{Eric}}''), thus breaking his own rule. Fanfic author Creator/AAPessimal added the land of '''Aceria'''[[note]]From the Latatian ''acer'' meaning "leaf of the maple tree"[[/note]], which is Canada with all the knobs turned UpToEleven. It includes transvestite lumberjacks, maple syrup, Mounties, stroppy Quirmian-speakers in L'Acerie Quirmienne and (to be able to encompass Country and Widdershins Music) has an {{Eagleland}}-like annex called "Lower Aceria" which has states rather than provinces. Aceria is growing with the fanon. Assassins' Guild School students from Quirmian Aceria and [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica Rimwards Howondaland]] speak about the cultural differences between Home and Ankh-Morpork in fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10383608/7/The-Prospectus The Prospectus]]''.

Eeeeeh, Canadians [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark eat nothing but Kraft Dinner]] [[Music/BarenakedLadies even if they didn't HAVE to eat Kraft Dinner]] (which is Canadian for "macaroni and cheese"), Tim Hortons, donuts, poutine[[note]]French fries with cheese curds, and enough gravy to partially melt the cheese[[/note]], and Canadian... er... back bacon. Anglophone Canadians all speak with a stereotyped [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West/Central_Canadian_English West/Central Canadian English]] accent, putting "eh" [[VerbalTic at the end of questions or affirmations]], and prominently raising the "ou" in aboot every word containing it. Also, as per the page image, Canadians are famed for shamelessly holding their maple syrup jugs on the ''non-handle side''.

Added DiffLines:

* Oscar the Grouch from ''Series/SesameStreet'' is from Canada, specifically Minto, New Brunswick; it's not something he lieks to advertise.

* Two members of the original BlueOysterCult, the Boucher brothers, are from so far upstate New York as to be from Quebec. This may well explain frequent references to timber wolves, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and other ''Canada, Eh?'' archetypes in early BOC albums.

** "Canadaman" builds a mythology around a song by TheArrogantWorms. Graham portrays Canadaman in aboot the most outlandish voice he can muster, eh, and Paul plays his Quebecois archenemy.

* Wrestling/RingOfHonor had a straight (as in the general sense) example in graduate Grizzly Redwood, a lumberjack from Yukon they unleashed on Chasyn Rance at ''Driven 2008''. Kyle O'Reilly, meanwhile, is the standard pro wrestling version at times approaching parody, being a hotheaded mixed martial arts studying grappler who often comes off as nonsensical and rambling when trying to cut an intimidating promo(though he ''will'' break your arm if he gets you down on the mat).

** Steve Corino is an aversion of the usual pro wrestling type, being sufficiently charismatic and also of the wider media type, being an unapologetic money grubbing CardCarryingVillain. His little sister was much the same, only less about money and more about hedonism, but became nicer when ROH began showcases for her [[Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} own company.]]

** Wrestling/KevinSteen is the jerkass from Quebec, although he initially loved ROH, believing it to be his sanctuary from Wrestling/{{CZW}}. It wasn't until he was sent back out by Wrestling/ElGenerico and barred from reentry by Wrestling/JimCornette that he began to hate the world in general...also, he's cut entire promos in Quebecois.
