You’d think it would be hard to define a country as large as Canada in just one picture, but we’ve found a few that have somehow managed to do it.

Whether it highlights our polite, apologetic ways, or our obsession with beavers and moose, these images all capture something that could only exist in our great white north.

Here in Canada, we need to take special safety precautions others would never consider

Flying pucks

Mostly because we have little hockey sticks flowing through our veins

Note

Since hockey injuries are so common, we’ve actually modified our hospital bills

Of course, no country is completely safe

Beaver

Beavers, after all, are pretty much the worst

Actually, bears are a little bit worse

And don’t even get us started on the moose

We’d rather run into the hardest criminal in Canada, TBH.

Thieves

…criminals who mainly steal food and maple syrup apparently

Heist

Maybe they’re just mistaking maple syrup smells for $100 bills

We actually need to be reminded not to be polite to thieves

Not rude

Don’t worry if a thief is trying to break into your home though, they’re easily outsmarted

Canoe escape

For the love of God, do not try this at home

And if you capsize your “sled”, we have a contest for you!

Last year’s frozen-hair winner took home $150!

Since you’re cold anyway, check out this awesome deal!

Just make sure you get home before the snow starts to fall…

Because once it does, you’re in for the week
