You find -40C a little chilly.

You know hockey was truly born here.

There's a Tim Horton's at all American/Canada borders... on the Canadian side.

You pity people who haven't tasted a "beavertail".

You can complete the phrase: "The good old ____ game is the best ____ you can ____."

You find it difficult to explain "milk in a bag" to non-Canadians, and even more difficult to describe the "snippy-thing" used on bag corners.
