Canadians are quirky. We’re the only country I know of that names our currency something out of a cartoon. Our one dollar coin is called a Loonie and our two dollar coin is called a Toonie. The $1 coin ended up being called a Loonie because there is a loon (it’s an aquatic bird) on it.
You Know You’re Canadian If:

- You understand the sentence, “Could you please pass me a serviette, I just spilled my poutine.”
- You eat chocolate bars instead of candy bars.
- You drink pop, not soda.
- You know what it means to be on pogey.
- You know that a mickey and 2-4’s mean “Party at the camp, eh?!”
- When there is a social problem, you turn to your government to fix it instead of telling them to stay out of it.
- You drive on a highway, not a freeway.
- You know what a Robertson screwdriver is.
- You know that Mounties “don’t always look like that.”
