->''"In Canada, you can go to an all-nude strip club and order alcohol. That’s right. From Moose Jaw to the Bay of Fundy, you can suck down a 20-ounce Pilsner while watching some coal miner’s daughter strip down to her pelt. ''Jealous?''"''
-->-- '''Robin Scherbatsky''', ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' (Worth noting: you can do this in one spot in Vegas or anywhere in Oregon[[note]]and you can't actually do it in Moose Jaw, since Saskatchewan has more restrictive laws[[/note]])

In American media, Canada is [[QuirkyNeighbourCountry a sweet, quirky and slightly backwards version of America]]. It's as if you took everyone from Minnesota, gave them an obsession with [[CanadianEqualsHockeyFan hockey]] [[note]]Anyone who thinks this should be clarified to UsefulNotes/IceHockey will be stiffly beaten by the RCMP, with a hockey stick.[[/note]] (OK, it's practically an unofficial religion), and made that an entire country. Everybody's white (except the First Nations), and everyone who isn't French has a Scottish [[note]]or Irish, or English, or even Welsh[[/note]] last name.

Canada basically consists of five distinct parts:

* '''UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}''': basically UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} but cleaner. Serves as Canada's own BigApplesauce in domestic productions and as a cheap stand-in for the original in American ones. Not actually the national capital, despite the fact many foreigners think it is. It's actually the provincial[[note]]"provinces" are Canada's version of States, ya hoser[[/note]] capital of Ontario.
* '''UsefulNotes/TheOtherRainforest''': filled with {{Mountain M|an}}en, including {{Mighty Lumberjack}}s (who are often [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus okay]]) and {{Hunter Trapper}}s. Also expect to see treacherous {{Indian Maiden}}s (who are often {{Nubile Savage}}s), moose, and beavers. Everyone here wears flannel and furs and is named Pierre [[Music/TheArrogantWorms (even the girl)]]. If an urban environment shows up here, it's UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}, but you'll never see it, because it [[CaliforniaDoubling never plays itself]].
* '''The Atlantic region''': basically [[HollywoodNewEngland Maine]] but [[UpToEleven even colder]]. Full of lobsters, Scottish people, and fishermen clad in yellow raincoats with funny accents falling somewhere between Irish, Scottish, and {{Pirate}}.
* '''UsefulNotes/{{Quebec}}''', full of artsy, ill-tempered, [[FrenchJerk stuck up francophones]] who believe English is tongue of the devil (unless you're in Montreal) and hate the people in the other parts of North America and the people in France (and sometimes even the Brits). Abandoned by France in favour of the Caribbean, but who wouldn't, ''[[ForeignCussWord ostie de tabarnac]]''?
* '''[[EskimoLand The Arctic]]''', full of igloos, playful polar bears, and parka-wearing Inuit riding around on dog sleds, quite possibly [[PolarBearsAndPenguins penguins]] and maybe even [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti yetis]], and of course cute little baby seals... at least until the polar bears and people find them.

Keep in mind that Canada, Eh? has no West Coast (besides ALL of British Columbia), no Prairies (besides a fairly large hunk of the middle of the country), and certainly no mild winters (except for UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}). The warm weather stops right about at the border (unless it presents a passport).

For more [[ArtisticLicenseGeography simple-minded]] types, Canada consists of two parts:
* '''Toronto''': Icy hellhole. Full of maple syrup, French people, moose, beavers, Moonties (who are [[Series/DueSouth Paul Gross]] clones) and people who say eh.
* '''Not Toronto''': Icier hellhole. More syrup, French people, moose, beavers, Moonties (again, clones) and people who say eh. And frequently called [[InherentlyFunnyWords Medicine Hat, Moose Jaw, Flin Flon]], [[UnfortunateNames Dildo, Swastika, Asbestos]], and so on.

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, doughnuts, poutine[[note]]French fries with cheese curds, and enough gravy to partially melt the cheese[[/note]], and Canadian... er... peameal 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''.

[[UsefulNotes/CanucksWithChinooks The army]] consists of a guy with a BB gun mounted on a moose, the air force a paper airplane[[note]]And [[TooCoolToLive the Avro Arrow]][[/note]], the coast guard a guy with a pair of binoculars and a rope, and the navy a guy in a canoe with a slingshot.

All policemen are Mounties, and they wear their red serge dress tunics and broad-brimmed Montana Peak hats constantly, even while on regular duty.

Canadian technology is always behind American tech.[[note]]Except of course, Canadarm, ATI, Corel Wordperfect, the telephone and Alexander Graham Bell himself, the Blackberry, the Learjet, and the aforementioned Arrow...[[/note]] In fact, if it wasn't for the Americans they'd have no culture at all.

Feel free to whack me over the head with [[CanadianEqualsHockeyFan a hockey stick]]. And doon't feel soarry aboot it, eh! I'll just apologize to you for possibly damaging your hockey stick, because that's the Canadian way, eh?

Oh, but remember: No matter how polite and well-mannered Canada, Eh seems to be, there is that [[ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} ONE exception...]]

[[folder:Advertising, Eh?]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnpVH7kIb_8 My name is Joe, and I! AM! CANADIAN!]] Text for that commercial, and for its follow-up, can be found [[http://www.craigmarlatt.com/canada/symbols_facts&lists/i_am_canadian.html here]]. [[http://youtu.be/AOnQROgk1IM Thoroughly parodied here]] by great Canadian Creator/WilliamShatner.
* Midas.ca did a commercial featuring a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsxV49pmnL8 Canadian car chase]].
* One of [[Advertising/ShawDeliveryBots Shaw Communications']] radio commercials feature the delivery bots talking about how polite Canadians are, ending with them thanking the listener for listening to their commercial.

[[folder:Anime and Manga, Eh?]]
* Kate from ''[[Manga/{{Sketchbook}} Sketchbook ~full color'S~]]'' comes from Canada (and for some reason writes "Canada" in kanji). She subverts AnimeAccentAbsence by having a very noticeable accent.
* In ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', Canada looks exactly like America except for a different haircut (his hair is somewhat longer, and his haircurl is longer with a curl near the end -- kind of like the one the Italy brothers have), is ''extremely'' quiet, [[VerbalTic says "Maple"]] and/or "Maple Hockey" when surprised, is constantly mistaken for his brother, America, and no one really remembers him. He is usually invisible to other nations, who sometimes think the "other presence" in the room is a ghost. And then the last part is reversed, when [[CrowningmomentOfAwesome he's the host of]] Manga/{{Hetaween 2011}}. And he even gets people to tell him how good his work is. [[NeverLiveItDown The fandom conveniently forgets it.]]
* The Canadian Gundam from ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' is a giant wood cutter, as is its pilot. All we get to see of the actual country is a forest where... there is wood cut.
* In an episode of ''Anime/WandabaStyle'', the girls traveled back in time and saw Susumu's father leave on a spaceship to the moon. With their future knowledge that Susumu's father never made it to the moon, they assume he never returned, and when they go back in the present, [[NoLongerWithUs they offer Susumu their condolences]]. Susumu replies that his father was stuck in space for five years, but is alive and well and living in Canada.
* An episode of ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' had a Canadian medafighter travel to Japan to challenge Ikki to a battle. At one point he mentions that the insane blizzard Ikki's town was experiencing would be seen as a "light dusting" back home. [[{{Woolseyism}} In the English dub]], he also insists on ending ''every single sentence'' with ''"eh?"'', until...
-->'''Ikki:''' Why do Canadians always say "eh"?!\\
'''Canadian medafighter:''' We do?
* One case of Team Rocket's TwinkleInTheSky exit in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' ends with them landing in an indeterminate forest zone, with two onlookers dressed for warmth. The ''dub'' goes the extra mile with their accent.
* ''Manga/GalaxyExpress999'' visits [[FantasyCounterpartCulture a planet]] where everyone is oddly [[MinnesotaNice nice and determined to be helpful]], and surreal, disconcerting, and suspiciously [[Creator/NationalFilmBoardOfCanada NFB-animated-short]]-like things keep happening. Tetsuro becomes increasingly [[WrongGenreSavvy convinced]] that the planet hides a terrible secret beneath its [[CrapsaccharineWorld pleasant exterior]], and seems to be vindicated when his and Maetel's passes are mysteriously lost. When they get returned to them just before the train leaves, he relents and apologizes to everyone for having been so suspicious of their intentions.

[[folder:Comic Books, Eh?]]
* Creator/MarvelComics' ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'' was about Canada's superteam, written & drawn by Canadian John Byrne (born in the UK, but raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - where Wolverine is supposedly from). The team pulls from classic Canadian imagery and tropes including a Bigfoot-like creature, two characters whose powers resemble the Northern Lights, and overall a mix of English, French, Native, and immigrant members. Only one character (Puck) had the "eh" verbal tic, and it specifically '''didn't''' appear in his thought balloons.
* In the ''ComicBook/XMen'' books, Canada is an outright evil place. They're the ones responsible for inhumane genetic experimentation on minorities like the Weapon X program. They've put mutants in concentration camps and gassed them, including women and children. Basically, Marvel Canada = UsefulNotes/NaziGermany.
** It's an odd fact that if a character in the Marvel Universe (and to a lesser degree, in the DC universe) is a sociopath (Wolverine, Wyldechild), a psychopath (Sabretooth, SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}), clinically insane (Aurora), gay (Northstar) or an elf (again Northstar), they're from Canada. If they're gay or an elf, they're from Quebec (Northstar and Aurora).
** ''ComicBook/OmegaFlight'' seemed to strive to be as ''un-Canadian as possible'' to the point of having ''US Agent'' on the team, and making the current Guardian (as in, the guy with the ''maple leaf'' on his outfit) a former ''US postal worker''. Only two members of the team were actually Canadian.
** ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} of the X-Men was their first Canadian member, and very proudly so, though he hardly advertises the fact. It's made complex because John Byrne made him Canadian, and Marvel didn't care because at the time, they didn't think he'd be a major character. As his popularity grew, Marvel repeatedly tried to ''retcon'' his history to make him American, with no success. He's now generally recognized as Canadian in the comic.
** A discarded version of the ''Wolverine: Origins'' storyline had Wolverine born and spend his early life in the Southern States and move to Canada after the reveal causes tragedy in his family. It was eventually decided that his Canadian origin was at this point too integral to his fan recognition to ignore.
** One issue of ''X-Men: First Class'' plays this straight, showing Wolverine to be a dedicated hockey fan ("It's my moral right as a Canadian!").
** Another issue had him describing to Kitty an early mission he had with Alpha Flight where he had to rescue the Governor General. His attempts to explain to Kitty who the Governor General is was hilarious.
* The ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' series, based in a surreal, video game-like version of Toronto, averts most of these stereotypes (it should be noted the author, Bryan Lee O'Malley, is Canadian himself), except for the occasional "eh." Also, American characters' dialogue will be spelled with words like "flavor", while the Canadian cast says "flavour". [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld The film]] plays much more with this trope, see that entry below for more.
* ''ComicBook/NelvanaOfTheNorthernLights'' is a defender of the Canadian north from Canada's golden age of comics. Many classic images or tropes that can identify a work as "Canadian" come from this era, such as a nearly constantly winter setting or characters based around the Northern Lights.
* ''ComicBook/WeStandOnGuard'' is set in a future Canada that's been invaded by the United States. American patrol robots issue directives in both official languages, and many iconic bits of Canadiana - Creator/{{CBC}}, Tim Hortons, Parliament - are shown or referenced to anchor the setting. The usual Canadian stereotypes are, for the most part, avoided, though CanadianEqualsHockeyFan is invoked in the first issue.
* One issue of ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons'' depicts Canada as a snowy, conifer-filled mountainous wasteland, where the locals all watch ice hockey and wear plaid jackets, while foreigners are made to work in the maple syrup mines in exchange for socialised healthcare, watched over by brutally efficient Mounties. Principal Skinner gets sent there by one of Bart's pranks, and eventually escapes by throwing a beaver into a Mountie's face.

[[folder:Comic Strips, Eh?]]
* The Yukon Ho storyline from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' has Calvin seceding from his family to go live as a mountain man in northern Canada. He doesn't get very far, obviously, as he seems to assume that walking from his [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield unspecified hometown]] (generally assumed to be Chagrin Falls, Ohio) to the Yukon will only take an afternoon, but he says that once he gets there he'll be able to hunt walruses.
* In a story line in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', Charlie Brown runs away, but Sally finds him camping out on his pitcher's mound. When she asks him why he didn't go someplace farther from home, such as Canada, he tells her he was afraid of getting hit by a hockey puck.
* A lengthy storyline in ''ComicStrip/MarkTrail'' was set in Canada and featured a mountie named Sergeant [=McQueen=] who not only wore his red serge tunic at all times, but was clearly shown to have ''another'' red serge tunic hanging on his door, presumably in case the first one was damaged.
* UsefulNotes/HongKong comic ''ComicStrip/TheWorldOfLilyWong'' featured a StoryArc where Lily's no-good brother Rudy and his mates were thinking of holding up a store and wanted to get guns without paying a fee to the local Triads. The obvious answer? Ask an American! Rudy approaches his gwailo ("Ghost Man", aka Caucasian) brother-in-law, Stuart.
-->'''Rudy:''' Hey, gwailo, can I borrow your gun?\\
'''Stuart:''' What makes you think I have a gun?\\
'''Rudy:''' Aw, c'mon, all Americans have guns!\\
'''Stuart:''' Well I don't.\\
''(Rudy returns disappointedly to his friends.)''\\
'''Rudy:''' Bad news, lads. I think this one must be Canadian.

[[folder:Fan Works, Eh?]]
* The Company™ (and yes, they've [[TradeSnark even trademarked the name "The Company"]]) featured in ''Fanfic/EventHorizonStormOfMagic'' is a rare example of an evil Canadian mega-corporation.
* In ''Fanfic/{{XSGCOM}}'' Canada is described - admittedly in jest to simple-minded offworlders - as a DeathWorld. ‘They say [[FourStarBadass [Sharp's]]] homeland is a frozen wasteland where the icy wind would cut you to the bone and where water only ever falls as snow, like it does here upon the mountaintops yonder... ‘It is said the forests there are full of ferocious beasts with huge teeth and claws called bears, and that you must prove yourself worthy by defeating one with a traditional weapon of his tribe they call a hockey stick’
* Matthew in ''FanFic/PartRightHalfWrongAThirdCrazy'' ''defines'' this trope. Even more than his canon counterpart. Which is impressive, because his canon counterpart ''is'' [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Canada]].
* The series ''FanFic/BoyScoutsOneHalf'' has one storyline where a group of Canadian terrorists seize control of Camp Moses in large part because they are living embodiments of this trope and don't like it. What exactly their goals were, and how seizing a Boy Scout camp in Western Massachusetts is supposedly the best way to accomplish their goals, is never quite made clear. As a ShoutOut, the terrorists are lead by a pair of brothers named [[{{Series/SCTV}} Bob & Doug McKenzie]].
* 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 UsefulNotes/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]]''.
* According to [[FanFic/DantesNightAtFreddys Dante's Night at Freddy's 2: Animatronic Boogaloo]], [[spoiler:The Marionette]] is Canadian. This is treated as absurdly as it sounds.
* In ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'', Maxwell's crusader army includes 509 holy hosers from Canada's Salvation Army.
* ''Fanfic/TwelveRedLines'' has Jones, a Canadian SelfInsert who joins the [[Manga/OnePiece Straw Hat Pirates]]. In addition, since Oda gave Chopper's real-world nationality as Canadian, the writer has expanded the culture of Drum Kingdom in a [[CanadianEqualsHockeyFan rather familiar direction.]]

[[folder:Film -- Live-Action, Eh?]]
* A very early example from 1941 propaganda film, ''Film/FortyNinthParallel''. Creator/MichaelPowell and Emeric Pressburger, both British, pulled out all the Canadian stereotypes, mostly good. There’s Scenery Porn up the yingyang, showing Banff, Niagara Falls, and the Prairies; there’s a French-Canadian fur trapper who sings French nursery rhymes; the Germans basically travel all across Canada meeting Native Americans, Hutterites, and average Canadians; there’s a quick shout out to RCMP and the CBC; and last, but not least, a native Torontonian pronounces Toronto like “Torrana”.
* In ''Film/{{Argo}}'' the Canadians help the US smuggle a group of embassy staffers out of Tehran after the embassy takeover. Which leads to a quite funny TV clip of a spokesman for the Iranian government swearing eternal vengeance on Canada with a look on his face saying nothing short of "WTF am I reading?"
* Played with in ''Film/BonCopBadCop''. This is a movie in which the killer wears a hockey mask... in part because he's obsessed with hockey. Note that is an example of Canadians using the Canada, Eh stereotypes, mostly those of Ontario and Quebec as seen by each other, to create the most "Canadian" movie ever made. Since it is the most lucrative Canadian movie EVER, it can be said to have succeeded.
* Misconceptions of this type form the backbone of Creator/MichaelMoore's satirical film ''Film/CanadianBacon''.
-->'''Mountie (Creator/StevenWright):''' I don't know what you're talkin' aboot.\\
'''Roy Boy:''' We have ways of making you pronounce the letter O.
* Inverted in ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'': in an AlternateTimeline where the Confederates won the American Civil War, many of the writers, artists, and musicians we consider a part of American culture end up emigrating to Canada to avoid Confederate morality laws... making Canada the more sophisticated, economically sound, and culturally relevant country of the two, and the CSA the backwards country.
* Partially subverted in ''Film/{{Detention}}'' with Gord, Riley's uber-Canadian debate partner and an all-around {{jerkass}} who makes Riley wish that the stereotype of "polite Canadians" were true. [[spoiler:Turns out he's not actually Canadian, though -- or even human, for that matter.]]
* ''La Grande Séduction'', a Quebeçois movie about a small fishing town's attempt to convince a doctor to move there, and its English-language remake, ''The Grand Seduction'', which moves the setting to Newfoundland, and gets most of its supporting cast from ''This Hour Has 22 Minutes'' and other CBC comedies. Both movies are chock full of jokes about rural Canada including random punctuation in the French version's town name and the entire town gathering for a hockey game but not for church.
* ''Film/MonOncleAntoine'' is a study of life in a rural Quebec mining town sometime around the mid-20th century. It has been named the greatest Canadian film ever made, twice by the ''Sight and Sound'' poll and three times by the Toronto International Film Festival.
* Downplayed in ''Film/PacificRim''. The prequel comics revealed that the first Jaeger-prototype was Brawler Yukon, and the very first {{Kaiju}} kill by a Jaeger took place in Vancouver. One of the Mark 3 Jaegers was built in Canada, and appropriately piloted by a pair of Inuit cousins.
* In ''Film/ThePresidentsAnalyst'', when the titular individual goes on the lam, along with being stalked by the FBI, the CIA and The Phone Company, he runs afoul of the Canadian intelligence service. They are very polite about abducting him and drugging him for classified info.
* Canadian cities are sometimes seen as interchangeable, even by other Canadians. For instance, the movie ''A Problem with Fear'' is set in Calgary's underground subway system. Unfortunately for the film, Calgary does not have and has never had an underground subway system; the film was shot in Montréal, as the French-language ads in the background of many shots will attest. (And to be honest, having French-language ads in a movie supposedly set in Calgary is actually weirder than inventing a subway system.)
* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', with American audiences in mind, lampshades this trope in the intro, saying that the story takes place "In the faraway land of Toronto, Canada". There are plenty of jokes thrown in for Canadians, too, though, like the scene of Scott fighting Lucas at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casa_Loma Casa Loma]], where a Hollywood movie is being filmed. At one point, Scott gets thrown through a backdrop of the New York skyline, tearing a hole over the Empire State Building. Through the hole, the CN Tower can be clearly seen.
* ''Film/StrangeBrew'', the movie that cemented stereotype Canada for most people.
* In ''Film/SupermanII'', Lois and Clark go to Niagara Falls on an assignment, and the Canadian side of the falls--which is the side with all the hotels and observation decks--is presented as brightly-coloured and very clean.
* ''Film/TakingLives'' is an American thriller set for no particular reason in Montréal, which you can tell because everyone speaks French from France and there's an establishing shot of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chateau_Frontenac Château Frontenac]]. Having the Château Frontenac in Montréal is the equivalent of showing the Statue of Liberty in Washington (and having Quebeçois speak with French accents is the equivalent of New Yorkers speaking with British accents). The inaccuracies get worse from there. There doesn't seem to be any discernible reason to call in the FBI to do the RCMP's job, and somehow they've found a magical train that gets from Montréal to Fredericton in [[YouFailGeographyForever nine hours]], a trip that normally takes about 22 hours.
* Creator/KevinSmith's "True North" trilogy (''Film/{{Tusk}}'', ''Film/YogaHosers'' and the as-of-yet-unreleased ''Moose Film/{{Jaws}}''), which is set in Canada and relies almost entirely on cartoonishly exaggerated stereotypes.
* ''Film/TheWholeNineYards'' almost averts this, taking place in Montreal because it was filmed there, but generally lacking in Canadian stereotypes except for Bruce Willis's rant about how Canadians put mayonnaise on hamburgers.
* The persistent mentioning that shots need to contain "more Canadian content" by the director in ''Film/{{Windigo}}'' serves to spoof the Canadian obsession with having expressly Canadian movies to maintain their identity.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** ''Film/XMen1'': Northern Albertans are depicted as rude, beer-loving, rough-and-tumble rednecks... [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And Wolverine.]]
** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'': After Logan quits Team X, he returns to Canada and works as a lumberjack, and even wears a flannel shirt in one scene.
** Two months before the release of ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', the official ''Library and Archives Canada'' Facebook page uploaded [[https://www.facebook.com/LibraryArchives/photos/a.448149705231367.104813.383985531647785/1048195265226805/?type=3&theater declassified documents]] on James "Logan" Howlett (a.k.a. Wolverine).

[[folder:Literature, Eh?]]
* OlderThanRadio: In ''Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea'', Verne feels the need, for some reason, to remind the readers about twice a page that Ned Land is from Canada. Whether the author considers this a bad thing is debatable. (Ned is certainly not very smart compared to the other two protagonists, but on the other hand, he ''is'' the only one who realizes that Nemo is the despot he is and that they should put more focus on escaping than studying the vessel that they are, in all but name, prisoners of.)
* The ''Literature/BloodBooks'' and the ''Literature/SmokeAndShadows'' series by Canadian author Tanya Huff are set primarily in Toronto and Vancouver. She makes a point to occasionally lampshade Canadian life and behavior. For example, in ''Smoke and Shadows'' a wizard from another dimension discusses the conquest of her world by an evil wizard with the Canadian protagonist:
-->'''Tony''': I'm sorry.\\
'''Arrah''': About what?\\
'''Tony''': I'm not sure. It's a Canadian thing.
* ''The Coyote Kings of the Space Age Bachelor Pad'' is set in Edmonton, and is notable for having a cast made up largely of black people. Then again, the author is a black Canadian who lives in Edmonton.
* British author Dick Francis' thriller ''The Edge'', set on a cross-Canada train trip, which is generally respectful and affectionate but also features a character who literally does say 'eh' at the end of ''every freakin' sentence''.
* A dark, noir version of Edmonton, Alberta appears in ''Literature/FallFromGrace'', which, if you've ever been to Edmonton, is both hilarious and very reasonable.
* Canadian author Robert J. Sawyer likes playing with this, especially in ''Frameshift'': "Britain is like Canada -— socialized medicine.", "You really do that. You really say 'eh.' "
* ''Hollywood's Canada'', by Canuck media legend Pierre Burton, thoroughly and hilariously deconstructs Canada's image in American film (hint: most of the flicks mentioned were marketed as 'cool and refreshing' viewing for hot summer days). Contains, among others in the same vein, this wonderful quote from British actor Arthur Treacher: "I say, you'd have to be a pretty virile bloke to live there, wouldn't you?"
* ''How to Be a Canadian'', by Will and Ian Ferguson, is a novel-length deconstruction, subversion and general send-up of every Canadian stereotype in existence.
* Most books by Creator/GordonKorman are either set in Canada or include at least one Canadian character, as Korman was raised in Ontario. In the Dive trilogy, it's somewhat of a [[RunningGag running joke]]:
--> '''Kaz''': I'm Canadian.
* The science-fiction novel series ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'' is written by Creator/KTMartel, who is originally from Quebec, Canada, the land of Neverending Winter. Transhuman Ambrosia also makes a brief reference that something terrible is happening North of the United-States. [[SequelHook What could possibly be happening there?]]
* ''Literature/{{Peacebreakers}}'' by Canadian-American writer Mindy Mackay both exemplifies and subverts this trope - set in Montréal, the book is about a bunch of [[ManipulativeBastard terrible people]] who take over the country. Although they don't fit friendly Canadian stereotypes, they're all obsessed with hockey, poutine, and saying "eh".
* In ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', the [[ImAHumanitarian Laistrygonian giants]] live in Canada. They even have bizarre names like [[AerithAndBob "Marrow Sucker", "Skull Eater" and "Joe Bob".]] [[Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus Frank Zhang]] is also the only known Canadian-born Demigod. (He's from North Vancouver.)
-->[[BondOneLiner "Welcome to Canada, idiot."]]
* Played with in ''Literature/{{Pharmakembru}}''. Although the story is set in Canada, it's specifically taking place in Saint John, New Brunswick, and focuses on the flavour of the Maritime Region over the whole country.
* After the airliner hijacking at the beginning of Creator/TomClancy's ''Literature/RainbowSix'' is foiled by John Clark and his son-in-law, the plane touches down in Gander, Newfoundland, and the protagonists are met on the tarmac by a "Royal Canadian Air Force" officer. [[DanBrowned Canada's air forces have not been referred to by the RCAF moniker since 1968]]. Interestingly enough, in RealLife, AIRCOM had been [[ContinuityNod renamed back]] to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2011, so ''Literature/RainbowSix'' could possibly be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in this by being in an AlternateUniverse, having done this 14 years ahead of our time.
* Most of Creator/RobertWService's stuff was written and set in the Gold Rush-era Yukon, presented as a hellish snowscape if you wander too far out of civilization. "The Cremation of Sam [=McGee=]" confirms a lot of Canadian stereotypes by presenting the inverse of them about Americans; Sam himself is "from Tennessee, where the cotton blooms and blows". He is presented as foul-mouthed and cranky, with far less tolerance for the cold than our Canadian narrator, although not too bad a guy.
* ''Literature/TheTrolls'' has Aunt Sally both poke fun at and provide true facts about Vancouver. For the record, no one in her stories say 'eh?'.

[[folder:Live-Action TV, Eh?]]
* ''Series/ThirtyRock'':
** When the crew hired a new Canadian cast member for their fictional TV show, we saw a clip from his previous work, a Canadian high school football TV movie:
--->'''Danny Baker''': Alright hosers, I want all twelve of us fighting for every metre on all three downs! We're going to make this a Boxing Day the prime minister will never forget.
** In another episode, Avery goes into labor in Toronto, and she and Jack decide to RunForTheBorder before their daughter is born a ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor Canadian]]''.
* In one episode of ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete'', Little Pete attempts to run away from home by riding a riding mower to Canada. A Mountie catches him at the border, hitches the mower to the back of his horse and drags him home that way.
* The Canadian series of ''Series/BigBrother''.
** While most series will occasionally allude to what country they are set in (Sometimes with a house design being based off of particular architectural styles), the Canadian edition has almost ''way'' too much fun with this trope. Not only is the house built completely indoors with the only outdoor area being the hot tub (And by their friends at The Brick dot Com![[hottip:*: The Brick is a Canadian chain of furniture stores - think IKEA]]) but they will often dress the houseguests in the Canadian flag colours, have them compete in hockey-themed challenges, or give treats such as Poutine, Maple Syrup, Beavertails[[hottip:*:Pastries comparable to a funnel cake or a donut that may be topped with something like bananas, Nutella, or maple syrup]], and ketchup flavoured potato chips.
** The houseguests of course find the stereotypes hilarious and even join in themselves - Season 2 featured a Canadian flag that they all signed. Surprisingly, you don't hear a lot of "Eh?"s, although season 2 definitely features a lot of people with thicker UsefulNotes/CanadianAccents than the first season, which featured mostly people from Ontario. (Notable for Kyle, Jon, and Sabrina, whose East-Canadian and Francophone accents are ''definitely'' pronounced. Jon and Allison even got so drunk they [[TheUnintelligible spoke Newfie to each other]]) Many of the Canadian viewers even get a chuckle, especially in the second season where the first words heard on the live feeds were [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Where's the Maple Syrup?"]]
* Nadia, From the ''Series/BitchinKitchen'' DOES finish most of her sentences with "eh", though it's more of an Italian thing than Canadian.
* The eponymous ''Series/{{Bones}}'' once insulted a man so hard his arm stopped working. He was Canadian and the entire episode he appeared in was filled with the Canadians-are-polite stereotype. When told he should get angry and yell at Bones, he said:
-->'''Canuck:''' I couldn't possibly, I'm...\\
'''Sweets:''' Afraid?\\
'''Canuck:''' ''Canadian''.
* Played straight in Season 7 of ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'', featuring the maple leaf, moose, beer, curling, AND a snowplow.
* Series/{{Castle}} wants to travel to Montreal alone to investigate [[spoiler:his recent two-month-long disappearance]]; Beckett insists that it might be too dangerous. Castle (played by Canadian Nathan Fillion) responds with "It's Canada! How dangerous could it be?" to fellow Canadian Stana Katic.
* ''Series/CornerGas'', one of the few acknowledgements that midwestern Canada exists.
** An episode involves an American tourist accidentally arriving in Dog River. One towns person (Hank) becomes smug and tries to mock the American for his lack of knowledge regarding Canada. However, the American turns out to be very well versed in Canadian politics and geography. The entire episode is an affectionate mocking of Canadian preconceptions about Americans.
** In another episode, Oscar has passport-related difficulties due to being in America when his expired. Brent senses a potential prank and runs with it, convinces Oscar to act out every possible Canadian stereotype to "convince the CRTC that he really is Canadian", culminating in trying to have him sing the national anthem in public knowing he'll mess it up. [[spoiler:Brent ends up singing the anthem instead due to his mother's interference, and he screws it up entirely because his attempts to confuse Oscar result in him forgetting which lyrics (O Canada or Star Spangled Banner) go with which melody.]]
* Anytime ''Series/TheDailyShow'' covers a Canadian election: they either pile on the Canada jokes or are flabbergasted that Canada somehow matters enough to be featured on the show.
* Two words: Lumberjack Song. Though, seeing as it was from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' the stereotyping was there for irony, and was also greatly subverted by the whole transvestitism thing.
* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' did a self-parody of this when Creator/KevinSmith guest-starred, making a movie titled ''Jay and Silent Bob Do Canada, Eh''. (Smith is a fan of predecessor ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh''.)
* ''Series/DueSouth'': Inverted when 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.
* Varies considerably in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', thanks to Robin being Canadian.
** On one end of the spectrum, Ted and Robin have this discussion:
--->'''Ted:''' You guys are weird and you pronounce the word 'out', 'oot'.\\
'''Robin:''' You guys are the world's leader in hand gun violence, your health care system is bankrupt and your country is deeply divided on almost every important issue.\\
'''Ted:''' [pause] Your cops are called 'Mounties'.
** In the DVD commentary for "Slap Bet," Cobie Smulders says that when the show's creators approached her with the idea of having Robin be Canadian, [[BlatantLies they said it was so they could make jokes at America's expense.]] Cue the joke above (pretty much the only time Robin wins the U.S. vs. Canada debate), followed by season after season of Canada, Eh jokes.
** On the other, TheEighties didn't get to Canada until 1993, the characters have made fun about Canadian Thanksgiving being in October ("What do Canadians have to even celebrate aboot?") and, when Robin got drunk once, she became "Super-Canadian," and started [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_PIixlTHfQ playing hockey in the apartment]]: [[CanadaEh "Stanley Cup. Game six, eh? The Rangers are aboat to be soarry they aever played shinny with the Canucks,"]]
** They also love playing with Canadian stereotypes, such as they are. There was a whole episode on the stereotype that Canadians are afraid of the dark.
** Robin has a habit of mentioning Canadian celebrities or pop culture icons as if they should mean something to her friends, on one occasion leading Barney to ask, "What's the opposite of 'name-dropping'?"
** On one occasion, Robin checks she's in a Canadian bar by walking into the back of someone else; he promptly apologises and insists on buying her a drink to make up for it. Also offers her a doughnut... on the hoose.
** Another episode has her criticise ''Film/LethalWeapon'' as being a rip-off of a fictional but apparently iconic Canadian action movie, ''[=McElroy and LaFleur=]'' involving a renegade mountie whose horse has been shot by American gangsters. We don't get far enough into the description to find out if the plot also involves a heroin-smuggling operation run by an ex-Vietnam War era special ops unit.
** Robin tends to drop Canadian sayings that don't actually exist.
** In the "Old King Clancy" episode, Barney shows the gang the website http://www.canadiansexacts.org/, a listing of Canadian sex acts posted by the fictional Canadian Ministry of Community Wellness and Public Service. There is a list of sex acts like the Reverse Rick Moranis, the Newfoundland Lobster Trap and the Sneaky Snowplow...but if you click on any of the links, it leads to a photo of Alan Thicke with the Maple Leaf Flag in the background and a funny caption saying the site is temporarily unavailable.
** In one episode from Season 5, Robin and Barney end up in a Tim Horton's in Toronto (Dunkin Donuts being the rest of the world's answer to Tim Hortons). The restaurant is a very authentic replication. The moment gets funnier when Barney goes out of his way to insult every Canadian in the restaurant (although he [[ActuallyPrettyFunny admits to loving the coffee]]), which results in a little kid barring the door with a hockey stick and Barney getting the snot beat out of him.
** [[WellDoneSonGuy "Robin, I'm proud of you, eh."]]
--->"USA! USA! USA!"\\
** Like all Canadians, Robin is immune to cold.
** Another running gag is that aside from the pop songs Robin recorded in her youth, the only song any Canadians know seems to be "Mmm mmm mmm mmm" by Crash Test Dummies.
* In ''Series/{{JAG}}'', Clayton Webb getting assigned to a station in Canada was considered punishment for leaking classified information, and Harm expresses sympathy that he was getting assigned there, despite Canada's status as a first world country that's culturally a fair bit like the US, speaks the same language, and is a short flight from his home in the DC area.
* ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'''s emcee, Creator/AlexTrebek, was born in Ontario. He sometimes exaggerates his Canadianisms for a laugh.
* ''Series/{{Letterkenny}}'' is about a pair of hicks from a small town in Ontario, who play up their accents as much as they can and drop "eh?" after every other sentence.
-->'''Daryl''': You have a dad, but half your friends have a "dee-ad" for some reason.\\
''*cuts to Wayne*''\\
'''Wayne''': Dee-ad! Hey dee-ad!
* On ''Series/{{Lost}}'' Ethan claims to be from Canada when talking to Hurley, to which Hurley replies "Cool, I love Canada! They've got great... Uhh..." Cue Ethan's good-hearted laugh. Of course, [[spoiler:he was actually born on the island and was lying.]] Everything involving Canada was synonymous with lying, [[spoiler:except in Nathan's case, but that was to fool the audience into thinking he was lying.]]
* One ''Series/MadamSecretary'' episode has Secretary of State Elizabeth [=McCord=] get into a very polite standoff with her Canadian counterpart over an environmental report on an oil pipeline, which she resolves by threatening to revoke the visas of every Canadian in the NHL. [[spoiler:The Canadians later let Liz use their embassy in Washington as a TruceZone so she can meet privately with the Iranian foreign minister and salvage the nuclear program talks.]]
* Another Rick Mercer production, ''Series/MadeInCanada'', satirizes Canadian show business and sometimes broadens its targets to include more about Canada:
** In the episode "People of the Fish", the Canadian characters trot out a variety of stereotypically negative aspects of life in Canada to scare off an annoying American producer who wants to move there, including absurdly high income tax (which TV producer Richard claims have resulted in the government seizing his car), long wait times for even the most basic medical procedures (Richard's colleague, Veronica, claims to have spent all night in the hospital waiting to be treated for a paper cut), and draconian requirements that Canada-produced media include a certain amount of "Canadian content" (leading Richard to suggest [[Series/TheRedGreenShow Steve Smith]] as the lead for the series they are producing).
** Inverted whenever dealing with characters who are American. Often Americans are portrayed as dumb, culture-unaware, and occasionally gun-loving. The Vice President of NBC is a good example of being a Fake American when Richard visits Los Angeles in the episode "Second in Command"; he thinks Maine is a Canadian province, and believes Richard when he tells him July is Canada's coldest month.
* In one episode of ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'', the family discover their granddad's second family who live in Manitoba. Cue funny accents, a very prim-and-proper Canadian grandmother who keeps everything bottled up (as opposed to Malcolm's violent {{Ruritania}}n grandmother), and a family who are essentially them but better and happier. Also, Reese loves it because he can go out shooting small animals.
* Mike and the 'bots of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' once had to suffer through a Canadian film called ''Film/TheFinalSacrifice'', which inspired them to write an "homage" to their northern neighbor.
-->'''Tom Servo:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RHVoFpncgA Enough! There's been too much Canada bashing for far too long! I say no more!]]\\
'''Mike Nelson:''' Don't you mean, "No more, ''eh''?"
** Episode 606, ''Film/ZombieNightmare'', was also panned, with lines like:
---> '''Tom Servo''': This is either America ten years ago or Canada today.
** Servo has also speculated that ''Film/SpaceMutiny'' may be Canadian-made ("it's just rife with the smell of back-bacon"). Poor Tom goofed; the film was actually made in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica during UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra, which may explain why everyone on the ship is white.
* The Series/MythBusters have done a few myths that involve Canada somehow (Exploding Hair Cream and at least two border-crossing myths); the jokes and stereotypes tend to fall into this trope.
* In ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', [=McGee=] is up at the border working with the Mounties on a joint operation, and when seen in the background they're wearing the scarlet tunics, and obviously traveled on horseback.
* On ''Series/NewsRadio'' Dave's office mates are shocked and horrified to learn that Dave was actually born there (though raised in Wisconsin). He mentions a childhood fear that his family would be mistaken for spies. ''Canadian'' spies.
-->'''Jimmy:''' You poor misguided Canadian bastard.
* ''Series/RedDwarf'': Robert Llewellyn apparently based his performance as Kryten on a Canadian accent. Of course, Canadians claim they don't sound anything like that. Robert Llewellyn later admitted that what he eventually came up with was a ''bad'' Canadian accent.
* ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'' both embraces and pokes fun at nearly every Canada, Eh stereotype.
** There's a scene in TheMovie where Red and Harold are crossing the border, and engage in this exchange with the customs officer, played by Dave Broadfoot:
--->'''Customs Officer''': Citizenship?\\
'''Red''': Canadian. Need proof?\\
'''Customs Officer''': Nah. It's pretty obvious.
** From another episode:
--->'''Red''': Well, I'm not gonna be calling the U.S. Air Force, Harold. What do I say? [[ItMakesSenseInContext We've got a missile?]] They take that as a threat, we're in real trouble.\\
'''Harold''': Well, then, contact the Canadian Air Force.\\
'''Red''': Harold, it's after six. He's gone home.
* ''Series/TheRickMercerReport'' lovingly pokes fun of Canadian stereotypes in both satirical news format, and with the host travelling across the country to feature different events, locations, and celebrities.
* Creator/{{CBC}}'s long running, now finished sketch comedy series, ''Radio/RoyalCanadianAirFarce'', poked fun at bunches of these.
* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'': A sketch from early 2011 depicts "Celebrity Scoop", a fictional Canadian entertainment news show based in Winnipeg. The hosts are so nice that they miss the entire point of this kind of show.
-->'''Edna Ledouf''': First up in the gossip world, Celebrity Scoop has received some red-hot photos of Ryan Philippe and Amanda Seyfried canoodling.\\
'''Thomas''': Yeah, yeah, that's right, you know. But we're not gonna show 'em, you know, 'cause that's private.
* In addition to the "Great White North", any parody of Canada done by ''Series/{{SCTV}}'' mocks the preconceived notions of the country held by... well, just about everyone else. One specific episode had the SCTV channel picking up a signal from Canada to play on their channel due to a strike at the station building. These programs include fake commercials for the Canadian Broadcasting Channel, their take on the "Hinterland Who's Who" (little vignettes during commercial breaks, mainly during children's programming, about wildlife), and a parody of the seminal Canadian classic, "Goin' Down the Road" (featuring appropriate speech patterns, woodchucks and Stompin' Tom Connors). What's it all aboot?
* The ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' standard excuse for why they don't understand customs (or cutting edge technology) on the various worlds they slide into is that they're from Canada. It usually works, with the locals assuming Canada is just that different.
* ''Franchise/StargateVerse'':
** In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', Rodney [=McKay=] is a brilliant Canadian scientist, arguably the smartest person on the show. While many Canadians will use "zee" instead of "zed" while mostly around Americans, [=McKay=] ''always'' uses "zed". This leads the Zero Point Module to be called "Zed-Pee-Em"--even, on occasion, by American characters. During an episode where the team has to travel to Canada to track someone down, [=McKay=] states that [=CSIS=] ("see-sis") is assisting in the search, much to John Sheppard's amusement.
-->'''Lt. Col. Sheppard:''' C-what now?\\
'''Dr. [=McKay=]:''' Canadian Security Intelligence Services. They're kind of like your CIA.\\
'''Lt. Col. Sheppard:''' [sarcastically] CSIS, that's the best you guys can do, huh?
** ''Series/StargateSG1'': After SG-1 rescues a little girl named Cassandra from the devastation of her home planet and bring her to Earth, they remind her that the Stargate is secret and she was born in Toronto. She then explains her fascination with swings by saying "We never had anything that that... in Toronto."
* On ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', Michael Eddington carries a "lucky Loonie" (one-dollar coin), which would seem to imply Canadian background. He's a lot more hardcore than the national stereotype. [[WellIntentionedExtremist SRSLY]]. [[spoiler:He also seems to have a kind of reactionary attitude towards the Federation, much the way some Canadian nationalists and jingoists have towards American influences.]]
* Played hilariously straight in ''Series/That70sShow'' when the guys travel to Canada to buy beer, and are detained by a couple of Mounties (played by [[Series/{{SCTV}} Joe Flaherty and Dave Thomas]]) when Fez misplaces his Green Card.
* Parodied in Rick Mercer's ''Series/ThisHourHas22Minutes'' sketch (and eventual special) "Talking to Americans", in which he interviewed American citizens, playing off their ill-conceived notions of what life is like in Canada (i.e. asking people if they would visit "Canada's national igloo", making them believe the Canadian time zones run on 20-hour clocks, convincing them that moose are being pelted with Tim Hortons Timbits, having them think Canada goes through a period of nocturnal darkness every year, etc.) One of his favorite traps is to try and get U.S. politicians to say that Toronto is the national capital. The CrowningMomentOfFunny comes when he's asking a woman if she can name all the Canadian states, and her young son points out that Canada has provinces, not states.
* ''Series/TwinPeaks'', set in Washington state, featured plaid-wearing Quebecois drug dealers who live in British Columbia. In fairness, though, the American characters wore a lot of plaid, too, and many of them were, indeed, lumberjacks.
* Creator/USANetwork showed a pilot for a series (''Underfunded'') that would involve a character working for the "Canadian Secret Service" (CSS). In addition to not being particularly well-researched (Canada's foreign intelligence service is the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, or CSIS), the end of the pilot involved the main character being assigned a semi-permanent post in Washington, D.C., thereby rendering the whole exercise pointless. It was not picked up for a full series.
* In ''Series/VeronicaMars'' the girls are pressured to join a dorm-wide party where everyone decorates their rooms like a different country. They give a TakeThat to the whole thing by picking Canada, with the country spirit consisting of a picture of a moose, saying "Eh," and playing Music/BarenakedLadies songs.
* ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway:''
** Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles being from Canada[[note]]Technically. Although they've spent a good portion of their lives in Canada, Colin is originally from Scotland and Ryan was born in America.[[/note]] frequently made them targets for these kinds of jokes, especially from Drew Carey.
*** Incidentally, it would also appear that Colin is contractually-obligated to appear in every Canadian sitcom for now to the end of time.
** A game of Foreign Film Dub, which involves two of the actors [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign faking a foreign language]] while the other two "translate" for them. One time, the "foreign language" given to them to fake and translate was "Canadian". In addition to the "film" being entitled "Oot 'n' Aboot", the "Canadian" language as faked consisted of nothing but the word "eh," interspersed with words like "hoser", and various hockey-related terms. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYDfSBdKUC8 Here it is.]]
* A Season 4 episode of ''Series/ZNation'' sees the group trying to reach a rumored safe zone in Canada. As soon as they reach the border, they're attacked by zombie mounties, zombie hoosiers, and zombie hockey players.
-->'''Doc''': I hate to stereotype, but those were the nicest zombies I ever met.

[[folder:Music, Eh?]]
* The Canadian band Music/BarenakedLadies occasionally plays up this stereotype for fun in their songs, like in "If I Had A Million Dollars", which contains the line "We wouldn't have to eat Kraft Dinner--" "But we ''would'' eat Kraft Dinner?" "Of course we would, we'd just eat ''more''." "And buy really expensive ketchups with it..."
* As does the Canadian group Music/TheArrogantWorms. ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flz30UpNB_M 1]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlQeW2HN0U0&feature=related 2]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vxDDcTc64c 3]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDs5oTZhncM&feature=related 4]])
-->'''Worms''': We've got rocks and trees and trees and rocks and rocks and trees and trees and rocks and rocks and trees and trees and rocks and rocks and trees and trees and rocks and... water!
* The semi-satirical, mostly serious folk/rock band of the '90s called Music/MoxyFrüvous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MeQK7JtLpU notably averted the "stereotypes"]], despite singing about Canada in a great deal of their songs. It didn't stop them from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-00zjEq9PNs taking a dig at both Spain and Canada on of their most famous songs]].
** By the way, that's Jian Ghomeshi with the longest hair (known to much of Canada now as the former host, now subject of a sex scandal, of the program ''Q'' on CBC Radio).
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "[[Music/AmericanIdiot Canadian Idiot]]" is about stereotypical Canadians sung from the perspective of a stereotypical Type 2 {{Eagleland}}er.
* Music/{{Rush}} are national heroes in Canada, eh?
* So is Stompin' Tom Connors, who wrote a song about every city he visited during his career. Some of these include "Sudbury Saturday Night" and "Tillsonburg," and he wrote about Canadian subjects such as potatoes from Prince Edward Island (including a ShoutOut to the Ontario Provincial Police) and hockey.
* "Take Off" by Bob & Doug [=McKenzie=] (like, those hosers from ''Series/{{SCTV}}'''s "Great White North", eh?) with guest vocals from Geddy Lee of Rush. Ten bucks is ten bucks, eh?
* The Music/CrashTestDummies' (who are from Manitoba) music video for their cover of Music/{{XTC}}'s "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToOisBgOSL4 The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead]]" (used in the film "Dumb And Dumber") makes fun of this. It starts with main character Harry walking down a street trying to talk to Canadians: "Bonjour, eh? Oh Canada, eh? Man, I thought Canadians were supposed to be friendly!"
* Music/FiveIronFrenzy's "Oh, Canada" mentions lumberjacks, Mounties, [[MisplacedWildlife yaks]], lemmings, venison slurpees, milk in bags, and Creator/WilliamShatner. They say 'eh' instead of 'what' or 'duh' that's the mighty power of Canada.
* The Canadian rock band Music/TheTragicallyHip, with their notable hits, such as "Little Bones", "Wheat Kings", "Queen of the Furrows", "Bobcaygeon" (actually named that because it was the only town they could think of to rhyme with "constellation"), "Courage (For Hugh [=MacLennan=])", and "Three Pistols" (which starts with the line "Tom Thomson came paddlin' past").
* Canadian band Music/TheBirthdayMassacre talked about this in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PTq9a8WgYI this fanmail video]], where they were asked: 1, do they speak with a Canadian accent, and 2, is saying 'eh' at the end of every sentence a regional thing. They answered that 1, they don't think that they speak with a Canadian accent, but in Canada nobody cares if you have an American accent, whereas in America they've been teased for their accents and saying stuff like 'aboot' for 'about' and 'soary' for 'sorry', and 2, it's not a regional thing but more a polite thing, indicating that it's the other person's turn to talk.
* Darkthrone, with their stirring anthem [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnLxun1gdz8 Canadian Metal]]. This song caused some controversy among Canadian metalheads when it was first released, as for some it is hard to tell if it was meant as mockery or a genuine tribute. In interviews from around the same time they clarified that yes, they actually really like a lot of Canadian metal bands, and the lyrics are taken from song titles of classic Canadian metal bands.
* The band Great Big Sea likes to highlight their Canadian origins - fully half of their songs reference Newfoundland (specifically, St. John's) or other areas in Canada, or else are old British drinking/sailing songs with the lyrics redone to reflect Canadian sensibilities. (Played straight, too - no tongue-in-cheek.)
* Vancouver-based folk-rock band Spirit of the West exemplified the 'soary' ideal in their song "Far Too Canadian". They also celebrated the Canadian-Scot heritage in "The Old Sod", and touched upon canadian life in many other songs.
* Music/JonLajoie, who is Canadian, parodies this in his song "WTF Collective 2" with MC Canadian Stereotype:
-->Hello, I'm MC Canadian-Stereotype
-->I'm aboot to get started so let me get off the ice
-->But I don't want any trouble and I am always polite
-->Now lets hop on my snowmobile and I will tell you what I like
-->But first I'll turn off curling and turn down Music/AvrilLavigne
-->Et je vais dire une phrase en francais, parce qu'ici on est bilingue [[note]]English: and I will say a sentence in french, because here we are bilingual[[/note]]
-->Oh boy, I fell off my igloo and I hurt my knee
-->Let's go to the hospital! Don't worry, here in Canada it's free, eh?
* Classified's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjiwBwBL4Qo ''Oh, Canada'']] has been declared as the Canadian hip hop National Anthem.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWQf13B8epw Canadian, Please]] by Gunnarolla, extolling the many virtues of Canadaian citizenship.
* Kelowna-based folk punk band The Dreadnoughts merge Canadian stereotypes with Irish and Eastern European ones, which is to say, lots of alcohol references. "Ivanhoe" is about a bar of the same name in Kelowna, and "Poutine" is about discovering a love for a certain Quebecois dish while on tour in La Belle Provence.
* Still in Kelowna, we have one dubstep artist called Music/{{Excision}}, who makes disemboweling brostep with drops influenced by brutal death metal[[note]][[Music/{{Cryptopsy}} ...And Canadians are masters at it, eh?]][[/note]] and {{harsh noise}}[[note]][[Music/VenetianSnares Canadians are not too far behind even in this department, eh?]][[/note]]. So much for hailing from a quaint little lakeside village, eh?
* The Cat Empire, an Australian jazz-funk act, describe visiting Montreal on a tour in "So Long". They describe it as a "super town".
* Almost everything Stan Rogers ever did. Particular mention goes to "Barrett's Privateers" and "Northwest Passage".
* Torontonian metal band Music/{{Annihilator}} once wrote a song about how awesome Kraft Dinner is (with the T removed to avoid copyright issues). [[FaceOfTheBand Jeff Waters]] was only able to pay for the band's rehearsal space by living off the stuff.
* Creator/JoniMitchell, like Music/CelineDion,[[note]]but possibly better[[/note]] is practically a national icon. She avoids being a professional Canadian, but just now and again her nationality receives a nod.
--> I wish I had a River, I could skate away on... ''(The River)''
--> On the back of a cartoon coaster,
-->In the blue TV screen light,
-->I drew a map of Canada...
-->Oh Canada! ''(A Case of You)''
* Two members of the original Music/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.
* Music/{{Gob}}, Canada's resident punk rock brats in TheNineties, couldn't resist having curling, hockey and snowboarding in one of their first videos, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndBJbtZjNok "You're Too Cool"]].

[[folder:Pro Wrestling, Eh?]]
* Oddly enough, ProfessionalWrestling completely averts this trope (well, ''almost'' completely; after all, Wrestling/{{WWE}} did have a {{heel}} mountie in full dress uniform for a while; ironically, WWE wasn't allowed to use him in Canada at all), even though they embrace every single other stereotypical ethnic trope out there. This may be because half the wrestlers in North America (at least the well-known ones) are from either Canada or Texas. In fact, professional wrestling may be the only form of popular fictional entertainment where Canadians can be portrayed as jerks or outright evil, such as the Garvins in Wrestling/{{NWA}}[=\=]Wrestling/{{A|mericanWrestlingAssociation}}WA.
* Canadians tend to have their own stereotype within ProfessionalWrestling involving superior in-ring skill and charisma ranging between "average" and "a wet slab of concrete." This is likely due to the fact that most notable Canadian wrestlers came from the infamous [[TrainingFromHell Hart family Dungeon]] whose graduates tended to fall into this stereotype. Notable exceptions include Wrestling/{{Edge}} and Wrestling/{{Christian}}, who are from Ontario, and Chris Jericho, who did train with the Harts but is simply a straight-up subversion. In his autobiography, Chris Jericho mentions during his run as a heel in Wrestling/{{WCW}}, he'd play up his Canadian-ness heavily, including putting strong emphasis on certain words to sound more Canadian, such as the "ain" part of "again".
* One of the best places to find quirky, backwards, overly nice Canadians in pro wrestling ironically is in Canada itself, specifically Quebec. This doesn't stop them from being heels though, [[AffablyEvil quite the opposite actually]], especially not in Northern Championship Wrestling(nCw) and International Wrestling Syndicate.
* While Wrestling/ChrisBenoit, in the latter period of his career while he usually {{face}}, was often described (truthfully) as "residing in Atlanta, Georgia", shows in Canada always reverted to describing him as being from Canada. Benoit himself tried to hide his Canadian accent on the mic (usually straining to say "uh-BOUT" rather than "uh-boat").
* Happened with Wrestling/ChrisJericho too. He was born in New York (his father Ted Irvine played for the NY Rangers), raised in Manitoba, and then moved to Orlando. He was billed from "Manhasset, New York" during the [=Y2J=] era, wasn't billed at all during the first few years of his return as the "Saviour of WWE", and then was billed from "Winnipeg, Manitoba" circa 2010.
* Wrestling/RingOfHonor
** 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.]]
** It also 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''.
** 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.
** 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).

[[folder:Tabletop Games, Eh?]]
* Subverted by the ''TabletopGame/{{Champions}}'' 4th edition supplement ''Champions of the North'', which for all that it did bring up the various cliches also invested a fair bit of page count into describing the actual real life Canada of its time and a surprisingly accurate and informative historical overview (in addition to the usual writeups of local superheroes, -villains, and scenario ideas, of course).

[[folder:Video Games, Eh?]]
* VideoGame/DeadOrAlive5: Rig,subverted. His actual nationality isn't known.
* VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters: Maxima. If it wasn't All There in the Manual, you'd probably never guess his nationality.
* An [[OlderThanTheNES old platform game]] from ''WAY'' back in 1982 called ''VideoGame/{{Miner 2049er}}'' featured a fat Mountie named Bounty Bob, searching through Nuclear Ned's abandoned uranium mines for the villainous Yukon Yohan. A remake was made in 2007 (which also let you play the original version).
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** After the creation of the [[ExpandedStatesOfAmerica United North American States]] in 2096, Vancouver is mentioned as having unified with Seattle into one large Megacity and serves as one of the headquarters of the [[TheFederation Systems Alliance]] on Earth. It's also the location of Shepard's trial during the prologue of the third game and one of the first locations attacked by the Reapers during their invasion of Earth.
** {{Fanon}} generally holds that Commander Shepard is of Canadian descent, due to Shepard's voice actors (male and female) hailing from Canada. Lampshaded in the third game (possibly as AscendedFanon) if Shepard is in a romance with Samantha Traynor:
--->''[Traynor had been angsting about humanity ending up like the quarians]''\\
'''Shepard:''' Don't worry. When all of this is over, I'll buy us drinks back in Vancouver. I promise.\\
'''Traynor:''' Vancouver? Not Paris or Venice. Vancouver.\\
'''Shepard:''' It's a great city!\\
'''Traynor:''' You never take me anywhere nice.
** Kaidan is mentioned as being Canadian and has roots in Vancouver. Lampshaded in the ''Citadel DLC'' from the third game, during the scene when he offers to cook using the meager supplies in Shepard's apartment.
---> '''Kaidan''': We have beef, bacon, we have beer... [[SelfDeprecation the foods of my people]].
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' features the zone Little Canadia, as well as the effect "Canadianity", which randomly adds 'eh?' and changes 'about' to 'aboot' in chat. A donation of $10 USD will get you a Mr. Accessory, often abbreviated to "Mr. A". $10 Canadian, on the other hand, will net you a "Mr. Eh?" which gives a bonuses to your stats based on the current exchange rate between the Canadian and American Dollars. Sadly, the [=KoL=] people have said that in the event that the Canadian Dollar is worth more than the American one (as it briefly was in recent years), the bonuses granted by the Mr. Eh? will not exceed those granted by the Mr. A.
* In the ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars'' series, Blue Moon resembles Canada about as much as it does Russia. Its national anthem, sung by Olaf in one of his winquotes, starts out "O, Blue Moon, my home and native land..."
* The Judge's brother in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'' is Canadian, or at least has a Canadian accent. He occasionally replaces his 'u's with 'oo's or uses the stereotypical 'eh' and is also a fan of hockey. The first time he shows up, he calls Phoenix a hoser. Mia's inner monologue comments that he sounds Canadian, if the player couldn't tell from the (text only) context. This is because the Judge's brother trained at a law school in Canada.
* In ''VideoGame/TheNamelessMod'': The Protagonist, Trestkon, (Who is [[NotQuiteStarring voiced by a German]]) is Canadian, and while he does doesn't speak with "oo"'s or "eh"'s, the fact that he is Canadian ''is'' mercilessly snarked about by [[BadassLongcoat King Kashue]] though. The real Trestkon doesn't do it either, going by video interviews with him.
* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' has Bear Hugger, shown above. He's a woodsman from Salmon Arm, British Columbia, who drinks maple syrup, chops down trees, plays hockey, and hugs bears. When not being trained by one. He talks like a stereotypical Canadian in the Wii game, often saying "eh" and calling Little Mac a hoser. [[SelfDeprecation Incidentally, that installment was developed by Canadian developer Next Level Games.]] (and both the developer and the character are from Salmon Arm).
* In ''[[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Sam and Max: The Bright Side of the Moon]]'' Sybil gets the job as the Queen of Canada, she gives a 100 billion Canadian dollar bills with the images of Celine Dion. And several item referring to Canada have "eh?" added to their regular description.
* The Konami shmup Otomedius Gorgeous has Canada as a level as a featured ice world full of penguins.
* In ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' DS, Bigfoot will always greet you with a "tira mah, eh?".
* In ''VideoGame/{{Anachronox}}'', the Canadian Dollar became the standard currency ''of the galaxy'' due to "a freak of galactic economics".
* In ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'', the Klaww Gang member Jean Bison is a Canadian lumberjack, and his levels feature all sorts of Canadian stereotypes, such as log rolling, lots of snow, moose, accents, and flannel. In his case, his antiquated beliefs are due to him being a lumberjack of the 18th century [[HumanPopsicle who was put on ice for a century]].
* Although there has never been a Canadian ''StreetFighter'' until Abigail, whose nationality is only acknowledged through his maple leaf shaped buzzcut and a few names of his moves, ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' has Sasquatch, the Canadian-born big foot monster from the Rocky Mountains, complete with snowman buddies and Lumberjack like stature.
* This is how the Bumpties from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' speak, with "you betchas" thrown in.
* ''[[VideoGame/SangFroidTalesOfWerewolves Sang Froid: Tales Of Werewolves]]'' may very well be the most Canadian game ever. It stars two [[FightingIrish Irish]]-Canadian [[MightyLumberjack lumberjacks]] setting traps and wielding lumberjacking axes to defend their house from hordes of wolves and werewolves sent by TheDevil. Whenever they get a little bit beaten up, they [[BoozeBasedBuff drink typical Canadian alcoholic drinks to recover]].
* Discussed in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''. [[AxCrazy Trevor Phillips]] is Canadian and grew up along the Canadian-American border but shows no Canadian stereotypes. If someone makes fun of his slight accent, or he believes someone is making fun of his accent, he flies into an UnstoppableRage.
* ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth'' has a whole chapter of the game set in Canada, which is rendered completely differently in the style of a top-down 8-bit RPG video game, riffing on the show's RunningGag that Canada and its residents are crudely drawn and animated. Canada as a whole is simplified to a few cities that are quickly walked between, featuring a few residents, royalty, and lots of roaming dire bears. The typical Mounties and moose jokes are also thrown in.
* In ''VideoGame/ChampionsOnline'', the Canada area is presented as an icy heckhole gripped in the throes of [[InsistentTerminology NO ORDINARY STORM]] and contains the Hunter Patriots, terrorists planning on taking over the world employing weaponised versions of stereotypically Canadian things, like nanite-infused poutine. Its local superhero is Ravenspeaker, a first nations/luchador hybrid who doesn't wear trousers (when when standing outside in the middle of the NO ORDINARY STORM).
* VideoGame/VirtuaFighter: Wolf Hawkfield. Of the Great North Woods variety. Wolf cuts down giant red woods with an axe, lives in a log cabin, and trains outside in the snow.
* The survival simulator ''Videogame/TheLongDark'', is set in the northern Canadian wilderness, so the few human characters speak with Canadian accents, as well as the Canadian flag is prominently seen outside of some huts and logs.

[[folder:Web Comics, Eh?]]
* Northern Idenau in the fantasy satire ''Webcomic/TheFourth.''
* ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' has had guest appearances by the comically sinister Rogue Canadian Scientists (in a ShoutOut to Wolverine's backstory in the X-Men) as well as the Saskatchewanian Sasquatch from Saskatoon.
* ''Calamities of Nature'' comments on how [[http://calamitiesofnature.com/archive/?c=198 Canadian currency shamelessly copies American currency]].
* [[http://beatonna.livejournal.com/ Kate Beaton]], whose webcomics focus mostly on historical leaders and political figures, is from Canada and has plenty of strips about it. Who knew that John Diefenbaker could be funny? See [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=250 this one]] in particular for Canadian stereotypes.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' features the Canadian mafia, led by [[DastardlyWhiplash Snideloni Whiplashi]], who smuggled evil Canadian drugs into the United States until [[AxCrazy Oasis]] killed them all.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' is set in Canada (probably because so is the creator). It's not heavy on the stereotypes, but it invokes the politeness thing once or twice, and bilinguality looms significantly.
* In ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire'', the Canadians have conquered a decent portion of America in the backstory, and the only Canadian seen so far is basically a walking tank. Put simply, don't mess with Canada in Antiheroforhire.
* ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' has Canada being [[http://satwcomic.com/no-other-hat-will-do polite]] and [[http://satwcomic.com/matter-of-perspective America's hat.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' has the Legion of Canadian Superheroes. Their big entrance features [[CatGirl Katt o' Nine Tails]] providing a French translation of Green Gable's big speech. Green Gable himself is [[LegacyCharacter the first male in the costume]], making him a WholesomeCrossdresser, and the third member of the team is a wolfman in a NiceHat known as [[Music/WarrenZevon The Werewolf of London, Ontario]] (London for short).
* ''Webcomic/{{Subnormality}}'' may not explicitly be set in Canada, but there are enough maple leaves and hockey references imply that it is.
* ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' has [[BoisterousBruiser Canadian Guy]], who dresses like a lumberjack, speaks with a ludicrously exaggerated Canadian accent that contains practically no consonants, and constantly does stereotypically Canadian things like living in a specially cooled area of the office, wrestling moose, riding moose, gutting deer and hunting beavers. According to Commander Badass ([[SitcomArchNemesis who arguably isn't the most objective judge of Canadian Guy]]), this is the basic state of all Canadians and the soft-spoken people the Americans see in Canadian cities are red herrings to throw them off from the 'true' nature of the nation.
* Ruth from ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'' is Canadian, but had to move to the [=US=] after [[spoiler:a drunk driver killed her parents.]] She's a die-hard Maple Leafs fan, but that's about as far as the stereotype gets.
-->'''Billie:''' Aren't you people supposed to be nice?
-->'''Ruth:''' May I please punch your sternum?
* ''Webcomic/WastedTalent'' takes place in UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}, following the author as she goes through engineering at the University of British Columbia and later works as a mechanical engineer. The comments at the bottom often provide explanations to non-engineer readers, but sometimes have to explain Canadian things such as federal elections, the iron ring, the Vancouver hockey riot, [[http://www.wastedtalent.ca/comic/playoff-beard the playoff beard]] or the fact that [[http://www.wastedtalent.ca/comic/it-rarely-gets-below-freezing-vancouver-proper Vancouver doesn't get as cold]] [[http://www.wastedtalent.ca/comic/layer as the rest of the country.]]
* ''DarthWiki/PowerupComics'' has Shadow snark "More like, ''Can't''ada." in response to [[{{Hipster}} Teabag]]'s love of Canadian music.
-->'''Man in flannel shirt standing next to igloo:''' Boot it's troo eh! We loove too sing aboot seal humping and maple syrup eh!

[[folder:Web Original, Eh?]]
* Captain Canada! at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse pretty much runs on this trope whenever he tries to psyche himself up to use his powers. The other Canadian students ''hate'' him for this.
* Arkada of the Website/DesuDesBrigade enjoys playing up his nationality, to the point of MemeticMutation where he's claimed for being responsible for holding Narwal population in check by punching out the huge beast to make [[RuleOfFunny peanut butter from their skulls]]
* WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun does a Canada Day special once per year. Some specials will be in-jokes directed at their countrymen, but others play on Canadian stereotypes for laughs:
** "Canada is Sorry" plays to the perception that Canadians are the most instantly contrite and apologetic beings in the known universe.
** "Canadaman" builds a mythology around a song by Music/TheArrogantWorms. Graham portrays Canadaman in aboot the most outlandish voice he can muster, eh, and Paul plays his Quebecois archenemy.
* [[MemeticMutation In Canada, milk comes in bags.]] This is true, but in Eastern Canada (excluding Newfoundland) and parts of British Columbia and not to the exclusion of cartons. It's also not unique to Canada as a packaging method.
* All the hosts of ''WebVideo/VideoGamesAwesome'' are Canadians, and so love anything set in said country. Their fanbase, in turn, loves teasing them about it.
* WebVideo/{{Phelous}}. In his early ''WebVideo/MortalKomedy'' videos, characters frequently spoke of having to travel to "Oatworld."
* WebVideo/EpicMealTime takes place in Canada. In fact, Muscle Glasses' dad ''is'' a lumberjack.
* Derek the Bard of ''WebVideo/WarningReadersAdvisory'' is from Canada, and points it out in the episode where he mentions "[[Literature/WorldWarZ World War Zed]]".
** "Yes, I said 'zed.' I also say lef-tenant instead of lou-tenant, and I have Thanksgiving in October. I'm Canadian. Get over it."
* [[http://web.archive.bibalex.org/web/*/http://www.standonguard.com Canadian World Domination]], which existed during the late 1990s and early 2000s, depicted a parodical strategy of Canada [[TakeOverTheWorld taking over the world]]. Since then, it has been [[http://www.standingonguard.com/ put back online]] by a third party for posterity.
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesusland_map map]] that circulated after the 2004 elections, labeling the blue states and Canada as the "United States of Canada" and the red states as "[[{{Eagleland}} Jesusland]]," and [[MemeticMutation all its variations]]. One variation that stood out in particular showed Alberta as part of Jesusland, in keeping with the strong political conservatism in the province.
* LetsPlay/ProtonJon of LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys is Canadian, and gets a lot of ribbing from the American members of the Guys due to this.
* Rock Lee is Canadian in ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedSeries''. Two Sound ninja were able to distract him by offering him ''maple syrup and a hockey stick''.
* Andrew from ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'' speaks with a stereotype Canadian accent, and ends every sentence with "eh?". Although, he denies being Canadian. (He's North Mexican)
* From ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', we find out that [[spoiler:[[FakeAmerican Bandit Keith]]]] is ironically Canadian.
* Lieutenant Jee from ''WebVideo/AvatarTheAbridgedSeries'' has a stereotypical Canadian accent as well.
* All of the members of WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay[[note]]namely the entire "Best Friends Zaibatsu" of Matt, Pat, Woolie, and Liam[[/note]] are Canadians living in Montreal. This has been known to surprise fans due to Matt, one of the heads of TBFP, loved shouting "AMERICA!" as one of his catchphrases for a long time[[note]]videos where they play games on UsefulNotes/Xbox360 even show his GamerTag is "Amer1canMatt" or some variation of said name based on if he's changed it[[/note]]. Matt explained this in an interview by stating that one of his parents actually is from the United States and because of this classmates used to tease him growing up by calling him "an American," and that he always had a love for certain aspects of American culture and superheroes like ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. It's worth noting that that both Matt and Pat have stated that they don't particularly care for Quebec (granted they may have been referring to the city and not the province, which they live in, but it wasn't entirely clear). Pat and Liam have been known to sometimes play this trope straight by [[VerbalTic saying "eh?" at the end of a decent amount of their sentences]].
* Lampshaded in ''WebOriginal/YouCouldMakeALife'' when Dan thinks to himself that [[DeadpanSnarker Marc]] is proof alone that the "polite Canadian" stereotype is bullshit as his Swedish friend Larsson is far politer than him.
* It's a RunningGag in [[WebVideo/MatthewSantoro Matthew Santoro's web videos]] that Matt is Canadian.
* Even though WebVideo/ADoseOfBuckley often mentions that he's from London, Ontario, he claims that he's not very Canadian; he doesn't follow hockey, hates winter, thinks the Tragically Hip[[note]]a rock band popular in Canada[[/note]] sucks, and doesn't drink Tim Hortons coffee.
* Website/CollegeHumor features a video called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvBhFMgcZL0 If Canadians Made a Rap Diss Video]]" in which a couple of highly-stereotypical backwoods Canadians try to diss [[{{Eagleland}} America]]...but are just too polite to pull off properly.
* WebVideo/JonTron brings this up in his reviews of the ''Series/{{Goosebumps}}'' and ''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' TV shows, which were both made in Canada.
** "I can't wait to see more Canadian actors doin' their thing. Saying things like 'aboot'. Why are both ''Are You Afraid Of The Dark?'' and ''Goosebumps'' Canadian shows? Hey dere, dis is, uh, Canada. Our main export is campy children's harror. Is that a Canadian accent? I don't know."
** "Look at these credits. It reeks of Canada."
** "Here's a loonie for your time, here's a toonie for your wife, OUR MONEY' A CARTOON, OUR MILK'S IN BAGS, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere SCREW IT, I'M OUTTA HERE]]!"
** "Don't Go To Sleep" has a cameo from famous Canadian hockey commentator Don Cherry, playing a demented hockey coach. Jon doesn't realize who he is, but still picks up on Cherry's absolute insanity.
* Web novels ElClubDeHopewell and BienvenidosAHopewell take place in a very, over-the-top version of Canada: bears wander around the local school hallways and the moose is referred as the "Canadian Unicorn".
* In ''WebAnimation/ResidentEvilMusicals'', Steve retains his voice from his [[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica original game]] in text form, only it is outright stated his voice is horrible and sounds more like a Canadian on Crack.
* ''WebVideo/BroTeamPill'' hails from Toronto, and makes a few jokes about, such as this from the ''VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls'' video:
--> Observe: a young, not yet offended Nova Scotian. She's one of the few who's gone there and made it back. [...] But the eyes of a Nova Scotian are accustomed to the dark!
* Let's Player LetsPlay/ChristopherOdd is from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and has an almost comically stereotypical accent.
* Cracked likes to call upon these tropes from time to time when making fun of their Canadian correspondents. Usually it's making fun of the stereotypical overzealous politeness of Canadians, but at one point, they wrote that Canadians cannot be captured on film, in the same vein as many supernatural creatures.
* Never explicitly confirmed, Froge from Blog/{{Froghand}}'s constant references to Canadian culture, British spelling (such as replacing z's with s's like in "realise", or using words like "colour", "honour", and "favourite"), liberal use of "eh", usage of Stephen Harper as [[https://froghand.neocities.org/buafy/2016-11.html#08 a stand-in]] for Donald Trump (where Harper was considered by many to be a horrible Prime Minister, as evidenced by his party's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_federal_election,_2015 landslide defeat]] in the next election followed by his resignation), knowledge of [[https://froghand.neocities.org/buafy/2016-06.html#17 obscure Canadian laws]], his "Big Up" to legal opinions using a [[https://froghand.neocities.org/buafy/2016-10.html#15 Canadian judgement]], and criticisms of [[https://froghand.neocities.org/buafy/2016-10.html#24 the United States]] all point to a Canadian point-of-view, or at the very least somebody infatuated with the country.
* As both hosts are Canadians, ''Podcast/FatFrenchAndFabulous'' has more than a few jokes at Canada and its various regions' expense. Many of the episodes are Canadian-themed, but of particular note is episode 27, on the Great Maple Syrup Heist, a 2012 incident where 13.4 million dollars of syrup was stolen from a warehouse in Quebec. The episode also covers the 2017 theft of a giant commemorative Canadian coin the size of a bike tire made of solid gold and ends with a full symphony rendition of the Canadian national anthem in French in place of the usual outro.

[[folder:Western Animation, Eh?]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has a Rita & Runt skit where they end up in the Yukon rather than Florida where Rita wanted to go, and Runt becomes a sled dog.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'', when Meatwad enlists himself, Frylock, and Master Shake in the Marines, Frylock refuses and goes to Canada, which leads to a ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' parody where he is captured by a man in a hockey mask inside a barn with "CANADA" painted on it. The motto was "Come for the crepes, stay for the curling."
--->'''Shake:''' They should focus more on the natural beauty instead of the horror.
* ''Bob and Margaret'' a cartoon series made in Canada, originally set in London, moved to Toronto during a corporate switch to air the show on CanWest Global networks. The rather neurotic and stereotypically British titular couple began a new FishOutOfWater life with the "colonists". Canadian characters on the show are portrayed as varied individuals, some who exhibit these Canadian tropes and many who subvert them. Bob also learns that Indo-Canadians are just as plentiful, and make as good a take-away curry, as Anglo-Indians. Lastly the couple has a pair of Canadian relatives who constantly look for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese all over London.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChillyBeach'' plays up the ridiculous side of Canada Eh!, even to the point where the titular town is built on an iceberg.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld'' episode "Fish Tales", the family travels to Canada, where everyone says "Eh?" constantly. Bobby meets the Mooseheart brothers, two guys who dress like lumberjacks, own a log trailer, and teach him how to be Canadian. (There's not much to it besides liking maple syrup and hockey.)
* Rutt and Tuke from ''Disney/BrotherBear'' play this trope like there's no tomorrow.
* From ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' "Canada":
-->'''Dan''': Here's what I know about Canada. [[AnthropomorphicPersonification England and France had a baby out of wedlock, and that baby was Canada]]. Now, as for Canadians, first, they drink maple syrup directly out of the bottle. Second, most Canadians are at least [[HalfHumanHybrid half-bear]].\\
'''Chris''': I don't think they're actually half-bear, Dan.\\
'''Dan''': What do you know about it?\\
'''Chris''': A little bit, actually.\\
'''Dan''': Okay, Prime Minister, you tell me.\\
'''Chris''': Canadians thrive in cold climates. They live in the shadow of a massive glacier, blissfully unaware of the horrific fate that would befall them, should the glacier ever collapse. [...] You could put a Canadian in a line up with a bunch normal people, and you wouldn't be able to tell. You have to wait until they drop "eh" or an "aboot," or (this is a good one) they say "sor-y."\\
'''Dan''': [[ComicallyMissingThePoint You're right! Normal people never apologize!]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'' episode "Ducky Mountain High" is set in the Great North Woods and parodies many of the region's stereotypes, especially with the local Beagle Boys.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' once did a self-parody, calling turkey basters "Canadian Squirt Guns".
** Other than that, there are more references to where the show originated. In ''Take This Ed and Shove It'', Jimmy's job was a lumberjack, and he wore a cap with a maple leaf on it.
** In one scene of ''Who's Minding the Ed?'' Ed was dressed in what was supposedly a hockey uniform, which is actually a hockey jersey, a scuba mask, socks tied around his neck, shorts, and one of the shoes on his feet is a sandal, while he was holding a ''tennis racket''.
** "Canadians are weird."
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'', White Pantera gets depressed and can do nothing but lie on the couch and watch "Canadian soap operas". ("Don't talk to me aboot love!")
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne'' pokes fun of Canada, when Hector, who claims to have conquered it, lists that as one of his achievements to a council of other villains. None of them even care.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'':
** [[EvilTeacher Crocker's]] Uncle Albert is from Canada, eh?
** From a comic story in which Timmy wishes for Cosmo and Wanda to conjure up a cousin for him to justify a lie he told:
--->'''Vicky:''' How come I've never met [him] before?\\
'''Timmy:''' Because he lives in, uh, Euro...Litha...Bulga...Slavia.\\
'''Vicky:''' A Canadian, huh?
** In one episode, they visit the North American Museum of Pencil Pushing, conveniently located about five feet from the Canadian side of UsefulNotes/NiagaraFalls; in the same episode, Cosmo refers to Canada as the Greatest Country on Earth, because they have a ''leaf'' on their flag!
** The first ChristmasEpisode "Christmas Every Day" depicts Northern Quebec as a duplicate of Paris, complete with kids wearing striped shirts and black berets, heavy French accents, and eating snails.
** Norm the Genie wants to destroy Canada because "they've had it too good for too long". Which is hilarious because Norm the Genie's voice actor, [[Creator/NormMacDonald Norm [=MacDonald=]]], is Canadian.
* Canadians on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' are typically depicted as polite and generous to the point of going against common sense ("I thought it would be rude to intrude upon your plane crash"). Quagmire also once mentioned that Canadian strip clubs are one of his favorite places, as the girls tend to be missing most of their teeth due to playing hockey for most of their childhood.
--> '''Prisoner of "Canadian Alcatraz":''' Can I get oot through here?
--> '''Guard''' Just be back by bedtime.
--> '''Prisoner:''' Okay.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'':
** In the episode ''Test of Time'', [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Billy]], [[HeroicComedicSociopath Mandy]], and [[BlackAndNerdy Irwin]] are studying book reports. Mandy had ''Drums of the American Revolution'', Irwin had ''The Canadian Revolution'', and Billy had ''A Not-So-Brief History of Time''. While Billy was goofing off and not studying at all, Irwin called him on the phone 3 times. The first time, Billy was eating pie and Irwin was dressed as a Mountie. The second time, Billy was watching a monster truck show and Irwin was dressed as a lumberjack. The third time, Billy was taking a bath, and Irwin, oddly enough, instead of wearing an outfit stereotyping Canadian culture, wore a Little Bo Peep outfit.
--> '''Billy''': Do you know what language they speak in Canada?
** In "The Secret Snake Club", Lake Ontario was the home of the legendary 8 km long snake Shnissugah, who would protect the nerds from bullies by swallowing them whole. [[spoiler:It turns out that Shnissugah isn't as mighty as the Secret Snake Club thought as it is 8 ''cm'' long, and can't eat the cool kids because Shnissugah says they're full of "trans-fatty acids".]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'' episode "North America" gives half its focus to Canada in the form of the Kid Chorus singing a song about it, a countdown of the 5 greatest people in Canadian history (with Wayne Gretzky taking both #5 and #1), and Loud Kiddington doing a Cal Worthington-type ad for the Gold Rush and then playing a Mountie who has to get rid of some Native Americans.
* ''WesternAnimation/JacobTwoTwo'' (the Canadian animated series) probably qualify as a [[WidgetSeries Weird Canadian Thing]]. It's got everything: a specific setting (Montreal), hockey obsession, overstuffed jackets, a token Quebecois, and homework assignments on Canadian explorers (in which Jacob is assisted by the ghost of a bumbling French-Canadian trapper). In fact, other small instances of Canada, Eh? are common on shows made by Creator/{{Nelvana}}. The show was adapted from a series of kids' books by Mordecai Richler, a Jewish Montrealer who famously resented this particular brand of Canadian-ness.
* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'', the "Yukon Yutz" episode.
* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' averts this for the most part. They got the usual mounties whenever they visit there but otherwise not too many sterotypical tropes. A few exceptions include:
** An early episode named "Johnny Gets Mooned" features two Canadian astronauts that end almost every sentence with "Eh?".
* In the ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' episode "Luigi Vendetta", Kick is tired of [[BigBrotherBully Brad]] messing with him, so Kick was suggested to go to Foggetaboodit, an Italian-Canadian restaurant where he meets Luigi. He is Italian, but his henchpeople are Canadian stereotypes.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', a top secret Canadian spy [[spoiler:who's actually Joe the Janitor introduced earlier]] ends his explanation speech with "eh", but it's delivery makes it sound like it's mocking the trope. Kim also uses the trope earlier in the episode, commenting "Canada, eh?" when she's told that Drakken is in Canada. (Drakken wants to take over Canada partially because he thinks it'll be easy)
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' had a family of Canadians staying in Boomhauer's place who acted passive-aggressively rude and inconsiderate to everyone, even going so far as [[SeriousBusiness to put down on Hank's lawn]]. The episode also depicts Boomhauer meeting up with a French speaker in Guelph, Ontario, very improbable in real life, and them kayaking with mountains in the background - something which, as anyone who has been to Ontario will tell you, the province lacks.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Snails in the duo of unicorns Snips & Snails is a good, slightly more subtle example. He speaks at first with a lightened version of the stereotypical accent, to the point where it's ambiguous whether it's a Northeast American one or Stereotypical Canada, Eh? one. Confirmed finally when he in one scene adds the 'Eh?' to one of his sentences in frustration. (Possibly an inside joke as the show is produced in Vancouver) He's, of course, voiced by "notorious" Canadian voice actor, Richard Ian Cox. Oddly, this is one of his first roles where he plays up the stereotypical accent, which he doesn't actually have.
** Ponyville also has a hockey team (whose jersey colours are, for some reason, patterned after Toronto's team rather than Vancouver's).
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** There's a pancake restaurant called Paul Bunyan's. Its jingle:
--> ''"Paaaaaaul Bunyan's! Where food is good!"'' "But not ''too'' good, eh?"
** The episode "Sidetracked" (where Perry team-up with a Canadian agent) is full of Canadian references.
* In Creator/TheHub's ''[[WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010 Pound Puppies]]'' series, the episode "Homeward Pound" introduced the Royal Canadian Pound Puppies. Extremely good-natured and polite, occasionally self-deprecating, and dressed in red sweaters with a white maple leaf on them.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'':
--> ''Our country reeks of trees''
--> ''Our yaks are really large''
--> ''And they smell like rotting beef carcasses''
--> ''And we have to clean up after them''
--> ''And our saddle sores are the best''
--> ''We proudly wear womens' clothing''
--> ''And searing sand blows up our skirts''
--> ''And the buzzards they soar overhead''
--> ''And poisonous snakes will devour us whole''
--> ''Our bones will bleach in the Sun''
--> ''And we will probably go to Hell''
--> ''And that is our great reward''
--> ''For being the Roy-oy-al Ca-nadian Kilted Yaksmen!''
** Worth noting is that one magazine article previewing the RCKY episode stated that Canada's greatest natural resource would be revealed, and that "No Canadian authorities will be happy." Turns out Canada's greatest natural resource is...[[spoiler:dirt.]]
** It's also a land chocked filled with wieners separated from America by a river of beans in the episode "Wiener Barons".
** It also helps that some of the episodes are done in Canada by Carbuncle Cartoons, and that Creator/JohnKricfalusi himself is from Canada as well.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', the Pickles stop at "North of the Border," a Canadian-themed theme park/tourist trap. Some of its attractions are a mini version of Niagara Falls and an igloo-shaped restaurant where everything is made with maple syrup. When Grandpa wakes up in the car, he thinks he's actually in Canada without a passport and tries to hide from the "Mounties" (which are actually just park handymen in Mountie uniforms).
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** In "The Regina Monologues", when [[ItMakesSenseInContext Homer is forced to apologize to the British government]]:
-->'''Homer:''' I know we don't call as often as we should, and we aren't as well behaved as our goody-two-shoes brother Canada - who by the way has never had a girlfriend... I'm just saying.
** In "The Bart Wants What It Wants", Homer, when asked if the family can visit Canada:
--->'''Homer:''' Canada? Why should we leave America to visit America junior?
*** This is followed by the Simpsons visiting Toronto. They are seen on a bus with an RCMP officer, a hockey player, and a Sasquatch.
** In "You Only Move Twice", Bart is placed in a remedial class and meets one of the classmates:
-->'''Boy:''' I moved here from Can-a-da, and they think I'm slow, eh?
** "Boy Meets Curl" featured the 2010 Winter Olympics, and the ceremonial release of the beavers ("the Canadian dove"). Also featured was Bart's new friend, Milhoose ("your sister's loonier than a one dollar coin, eh"), and a bully modeled on Nelson who trips and taunts Milhoose with the words, "Hoo hoo!"
* Canada in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is the home of Terrence and Philip, which were originally intended as a parody of ''South Park'' itself: a crudely drawn and animated show about farts. However, later episodes turned Terrence and Philip into real people and made all Canadians look and act like them: they are all crudely drawn, move their mouths by "flapping" the tops of their heads, speak in a rapid-paced and stylized accent, address each other as "buddy" or "guy," and fart a lot. More traditional Canadian stereotypes, such as moose, mounties, maple syrup and Kraft Dinner are also commonly addressed.
* The Blizzarians in ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'' are a race of mountain-dwelling Canadian furries. "Who needs all that dirt and rock when you can have nice, cold snow, eh?" The show was made in Canada, so it was probably tongue-in-cheek.
* Ezekiel from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' is a walking example o this. Thick accent and all, eh.
** Canadian references are found all through the Total Drama series, particularly in locale-specific ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaWorldTour''. Also found in ''6teen'', or really any cartoon from maker ''Creator/FreshTV''.

* Website/BadassOfTheWeek's article on [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/ernestsmith.html Ernest "Smokey" Smith]] both lampshades this and mocks it in the first paragraph:
-->''"Canada gets a bad rap these days, with many Americans looking down on them as our pussier, slightly-British neighbors to the North, but anybody who's ever watched footage of the 1970s Philadelphia Flyers teams knows that Canadians can be some seriously hardcore motherfuckers who would just as soon cold-cock you in the chops as slash you between the legs with a goalie stick. These crazy bastards have an underappreciated history of badassery, and nowadays we don't really respect the fact that Canadians can be hard-drinking, hard-fighting, lumber-jacking motherfuckers who destroy all who oppose them in a flurry of bare knuckles, bizarre accents, and the Metric System."''
* UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}-based media personality Creator/NardwuarTheHumanServiette is straight-up obsessed with Canadian history minutiae, a passion sparked by his mother, a local historian. He frequently plays up the Canadian connections his non-Canadian interview subjects have, he has an affinity for Canadian imagery, and many songs by his band The Evaporators reference obscure Canadian historical events and figures.
* The ''Niagara's Fury'' attraction in UsefulNotes/NiagaraFalls, Ontario begins with a featurette starring a number of woodland creatures endemic to Canada (at one time or another,) including a polar bear and a team of hockey-playing wooly mammoths, all of whom speak with a thick prairie accent and pepper their speech with "eh?"
* On the Nobody's Listening Podcast, there are frequent jokes about the Canadian host, Trevor.
* Gleefully played with in the Vancouver 2010 Olympics Closing Ceremony. Canadians apologizing excessively, giant bobblehead mounties, ice dancing hockey players, guys in canoes and girls dressed as sexy maple leaf kites, giant floating moose and beavers, and so on. Even the organizer threw in a gratuitous "Now you know us, eh?" for the crowd. The whole thing could be summed up as an exercise in squeezing as many Canadian stereotypes as possible into 15 minutes of show. Note that UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}} is the least "Canadian" part of the country.
* [[http://www.bustedtees.com/canadaamericashat Canada: America's Hat]] eh? Also, a [[http://www.zazzle.ca/canadas_underwear_tee_shirt-235062036848578942 possible response]].
* "[[Creator/RobinWilliams Canada]] is like [[UnusualEuphemism having a loft apartment over a great party.]]"
** Another version has him saying "a sweet apartment over a meth lab".
* An old joke is that Canada was originally spelled Cnd. However, Sir John A. [=MacDonald=] had an American secretary when Cnd first became a country. He asked her to write up the documents on the new country, and she asked him how it was spelled. The Prime Minister replied "C, eh. N, eh. D, eh."
* Ever heard an angry French Canadian [[ForeignCussWord swearing in French?]] Even if the words themselves are beyond your grasp, the emotion and passion in their delivery will make it impossible to miss their intent. To expand, English swearing basically has "fuck", "shit", and a few variations of "damn" which express generic anger. French Canadian has pretty much ''the entire Church vocabulary'' bastardized to sound ''[[BlackSpeech terrifying]]''. "Fuck" is actually a fairly mild word in comparison - francophone children who use it are rarely corrected by their parents (as a point of comparison, one of the mildest québécois "sacre"[[note]]swear word[[/note]] there is, "crisse", actually means "Christ". Don't ask what the english equivalents of the stronger ones would be unless you don't mind a deluge of blasphemies). Note that this is also a completely different system of swearing to that from France, which generally sounds ''mildly comical'' to French Canadian ears.
** The Quebec Catholic Church has once put out a slightly tongue-in-cheek billboard campaign where they would print out the various sacres in giant letters and provide the technical religious definition below. It is probably fair to say that no other organization on Earth can plaster the downtown core with every profanity in the book without being fined.
** And vice versa, as a matter of fact. The French just don't take religion seriously enough to cuss by it. There, "Mon Dieu" is what old ladies say.
** In fact, Québécois swear so loud and so often that Spanish-speaking Floridians (lots of them go down there every winter) have taken to nicknaming them "los tabarnacos", after a particularly strong Quebec cuss word.
** Some Québécois also enjoy playing a prank on foreigners - or even oblivious Canadians. Tell them a French phrase, have the say it to a nearby adult, then watch the show.

* When Creator/MichaelJFox joined the Screen Actors Guild, the name "Michael Fox" was already taken. He considered using his real middle initial, "A" (for "Andrew"), but he wanted to avoid headlines like "Michael 'Eh?' Fox" or [[UnwantedHarem "Michael, A Fox!"]], so he went with a "J" instead, in homage to actor Michael J. Pollard.
* With the exception of the NFL (given they have [[UsefulNotes/CanadianFootball their own gridiron]]), Canada is present in the other three American major leagues. Thus, there can be a passive-aggressive stance with both athletes ([[http://spectorshockey.net/the-real-reason-nhl-players-avoid-canadian-teams/ no-move clauses]], refusing to play for the Canadian team that drafted them, [[https://www.thestar.com/sports/basketball/raptors/2010/11/12/feschuk_another_bogus_bosh_beef_about_canada_bad_cable.html complaints about differences]]) and fans (best example being the Boston Bruins-Montreal Canadiens rivalry). Much, in the stereotypical polite Canadian way, can be seen in [[http://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2016/may/09/dwyane-wade-canada-national-anthem-nba this comedic article]], which uses as a starting point Dwyane Wade not interrupting his practice while the stadium played "O Canada".
