Over the weekend, The New York Times penned a column declaring that Canada is now a “hip” country.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re glad to get the compliment and all–it’s just…late. Really late. Plus the newspaper just seemed to list off a host of Canadian-made people and things that became popular in America. Like our hunky prime minister, the explosion of Canadian music stars south of the border and the fact that Toronto-born designer Tanya Taylor had fashioned clothes worn by Michelle Obama.

“An expanse once stereotyped as the home to square-jawed Mounties and beer-swilling “hosers” has quietly morphed into a multicultural breeding ground that has given us The Weeknd, who can’t feel his face; the director Sarah Polley, who makes films of subtle power; and the upstart fashion designer Tanya Taylor, whose creations have been worn by Michelle Obama,” the article read.

Like, has the writer even BEEN to Canada?

The fact that America is only now recognizing the cool that is this country is a result of our consistently awesome behaviour over the ages. In other words: it took ya long enough to notice, NYT! Here’s an entire list of reasons Canada is cooler than the U.S..
 

We only let the coolest people enter our country:

We’re super popular

Admired

We were “making it rain” before America even knew what it meant:

Rain

Toronto > New York (according to Vogue)

Cooler than NY

We get more chocolate than America

We’re not actually sure The New York Times knows what ‘cool’ means

Wine Rack Wine Rack

If they did, how could they forget Bubbles from ‘Trailer Park Boys’?

Bubbles

Or ‘Kids in the Hall’?

Kids in the Hall

In fact, all of America’s ‘cool’ movies were actually shot in Canada

Suicide Squad, a high-budget blockbuster is being filmed in Toronto, and the crew staged a pretty incredible plane crash…

We have mayors who can out-muscle America’s best wrestlers

Not surprisingly, CNN admitted that Canada is funnier than America

Probably because we can actually, you know, laugh at ourselves
