The Canadians are commonly known for the popular sentence, “Sorry, I’m a Canadian.” This is from their habit in apologizing for simple things. For example, when a stranger bumps them on the street, they will immediately say sorry.

This kind of good habit reflects Canadians’ good behavior and nature. It has come to no surprise that this country is ranked 9th of the world’s most corruption free countries.
