[VIDEO] English Quirks That Are Rude in Canada

After living in Kent, England, for the last three years, these are some cultural quirks I’ve noticed that would be considered a bit rude in Canada (or Ontario, to be specific).

Thankfully Canadians are pretty forgiving so you’d probably get away with it, anyway!

I hope you enjoy!
