Here i sm, settleed, settling, finding my way in Canada. Is it tge safest country in thr world? It feels safe, but the citizens don't feel that warm. I thought canadians were supposed to be known for their warmtg. I find them very standoffish. For example, in france - no matter where you are, you say bonjour to everyone... Whereas here awkward sikence is the norm.

I used to think the biz was superficial but now i miss it. I thought canadians were more touchy...and phydical. But there is no physical contact; only amongst family members.

(I am Canadian too, but have been in Europe the past 12 years) Fair enough about the physical touching being kept in private. I was just venting and feeling a bit homesick

I'm a Canadian and most of us our kind and carefree. Depending where you live, some regions are more friendlier
People in big cities are simply busy trying to finish their day of work. As for touching , I think Canadians are more discreet and keep their physical touching in private. Whi wants to see people kissing or touching each other in public .
