We have victims of heinous crimes, too


As well as the occasional riot in the streets

4. We live with these majestic creatures

whom we love more than Canadian bacon


although things can get a bit out of hand sometimes


5. We take hockey seriously, but it's for a worthy cause (USA vs Canada, for example)

So our take on all of this stereotyping? Bring it! We are world-renown for being kind, hockey-crazed and apologetic. I think we can live with that very happily, eh?
