Our reputation for being polite as Canadians has been the butt of many a good humored joke. I recently heard that actor Vince Vaughan was being interviewed on the Ellen Show and she was asking after his little daughter, who is still a toddler. Vince replied that his wife is Canadian so they didn't have to teach her to say "thank you" ... she came that way. Ellen apparently asked if she had said "I'm sorry" yet !!!
So it appears that we still have it ! Lets not lose it !
Have a nice day ... wink, wink.
