Default Canada - less stressful place to live?

I may have bought up the excessive use of eh in the language and the lack of the word "y'all" but at work approx 30% of my clients are from canada where I would say 1/2 of americans I deal with are angry, stressed out, or in a bad mood when I talk to them I would say 2% of people I talk to from canada are in a bad mood. I am not sure if it is just the accent but I am seriously debating moving to canada right now. Anyone else noticed that Canadians dont b*tch as much as the people from the states do and are more polite in general?

I dont personally know enough Canadians in real life to make the assumption but from what I have experienced they seemed to be less stressed out in general




just a rant I guess

I spent a little bit of time in Alabama, and what they say about "Southern Hospitality" is totally true... wasn't used to their niceness. I think you'll find the nice level of Canadians goes down a bit as you get closer to urban centres like Toronto, etc..

Well we still have our fair share f bitchy people up here. BUT with dealing with people on my own forums and in other areas, it seems that Canadians are a bit less bitchy. They seem to be able to let things go easier and not ride on something for years over minor things, well there are exceptions to that for some people, but lets not go there.

Seems that the general view of Canadians worldwide is the same, according to some reports I seen on TV.

Yes I have to say the same.
We get a lot of American tourists in this town and they all comment on how friendly everyone is. We all wave at each other driving around and dance in the streets hugging and kissing people as they pass
Life is so nice here.
