Everybody varies here as anywhere else. I don’t like how our system is set up and its laws, like the constitution, etcetera, but the people are as good as anywhere else in the world, including the United States. I might fit some stereotypes of Canadians (my top half of my head sometimes seems to separate from the bottom half!), but don’t let me be a representative of a good Canadian. Here, I might appear arrogant, argumentative, and cynical. Most people here, as there, wouldn’t waste their time on a site like this unless we’re talking sex, drugs, or music.
I never met a Canadian that I didn’t like (that I know of). They are often hard to distiguish from USA Americans. I even had a Canadian girlfriend for a while, earlier in life. Thanks for describing the social/political system. I wouldn’t be too quick, if I were you, about wanting our system of government over yours, as ours has its own set of problems.
Of course, however, I find it antithetical, as any USA American would, to have requisite loyalty (even if it is seemingly just nominally so) to a Monarch.
