A Redditor asked how Canada differs from other countries and the answers are so sane

There are many things to love about Canada… and one of them is how brutally honest the people are about it!

A Redditor recently asked, “What makes Canada different?” and responses ranged from the hilarious to just so wholesome.

The question posted in the Reddit thread r/AskACanadian specifically asked people whether they are Canadian or not what makes Canada different than any other country you have visited or lived in?

And the site has delivered, with folks both offering helpful takes and toasting the country.

“Mobile phone bills” was one of the most positively rated comments.

This was immediately followed by other seemingly super expensive things in the country.

“Add plane tickets to that,” commented one Redditor, while others added things like “priceless real estate,” “grocery prices,” and “car insurance.” Ouch.

However, when people stopped naming the most expensive parts of the country, another topic came up – how big it is.

There have been many comments on Canada’s geographic size, especially in comparison to the rest of the world.

“I hired a car to drive around the UK. You can pretty much cover the whole country in a day. Unreal,” pointed out one Redditor.

“European countries are so small,” added another. “I’ve just traveled to the Netherlands and you could wake up early in the morning in Amsterdam and land in Belgium at 10am.”

People also pointed out that being large means Canadians have access to so much natural beauty, much of which is sometimes empty.

“Beauty. This country is so FUCKING beautiful,” said one Redditor.

“And we have access to the wilderness in a way that other parts of the world don’t have,” said another. “From where I live, I can hike, mountain bike, walk on the beach – all without seeing anyone. Even more cities have incredible access to wilderness.”

And of course, thanks to Canada’s sheer size, that natural beauty changes as you move from province to province, people pointed out.

“I have lived in Quebec, Nova Scotia, Vancouver Island and Ontario (Ottawa and North Bay Area). Completely different, but in a good way. I love this country,” said one Redditor.

“Agreed. A different understanding of diversity, but Canadians can also have an incredible sense of camaraderie despite so many differences!” said one Redditor.

Which led to the last point – Canada’s incredible diversity, both in terms of landscapes and people.

“Canada has a very diverse population. A cultural mosaic where immigration is widely seen as a good thing for Canada and an important part of Canadian history,” said one Redditor.

Another said it was acceptance of immigration and multiculturalism, with Canadians’ attitudes towards migrants improving over time.

“It’s not just about having a positive attitude towards immigration, but also about accepting immigrants’ differences and whether they retain elements of their home culture,” said another.

All great reasons that make Canada so unique!

And in case you weren’t convinced by the arguments above, there’s a comment that addresses the real thing that made Canada so unique – Newfoundland’s Dildo Island!

“It is [] nice there too!” one Redditor replied hilariously.

Meanwhile, if you were also curious as to why some Canadians might choose to leave the country, a recent Reddit discussion might shed some light on the subject as well.
