Hey Chop, hope you enjoyed Mexico. To the point at hand, what are you talking about?I said there was an open arrogance in Toronto that is hard to ignore. I never said rude. I have been to many of the cities you noted including both Paris and London and I would agree that as a generalization there is more of a rude atmosphere in those places than Toronto.

Intrestingly, no one has disputed the arrogance (generally speaking) in Toronto. Yet the only thing people have seem to agree on is that Edmonton's cold. It was -35 with the wind chill. This city sucks!!!!!



In general, I find Canada far more polite than other countries. However, as Canada goes, I think Vancouver is the least polite/friendly city in the country. Having been here for so long I am used to the way people are, and I always find myself pleasantly surprised when I go to other Canadian cities and people hold doors, make eye contact and say hi in the streets, say "sorry" and "excuse me" when they get in your way.

Even Toronto is nicer than Vancouver

nuxfan, i'm surprised you feel that way. I know many easterners who now call Vancouver "home" as well as a lot of friends and family who visit and find Vancouverites to be more than accomodating / polite.

I find overall, Canadians i've met, be it here or elsewhere, are usually very polite overall, regardless of where in Canada they're from.

I find that interesting as well Nux. I have noticed less about Canadians vs the rest of the folks in NA, but I have noticed a lot of change in general attitudes between East and West. I find folks from the West coast (Cali all the way to Alaska) very chill and relaxed. Mellow to the point of rude at times, almost an "I'm better that you because I don't take things as seriously as you," mentality. I find the Western Folks (Alberta, Saskatchewan Montana, South into Arizona) nice but uptight. A little more high strung than the rest and a little more 'woe is me." I find those in middle (Manitoba south to Texas) very much in the middle. Some are like westerners and others are like Easterners. I find those in the East (Ontario south along the eastern US seaboard) always busy and on the go, entitled, and arrogant. I find those on the far east coast of Canada the warmest and best natured people around.

Again, this is very generalized and I do not intend to instigate anything. This is simply my opinions from what I have encountered.
