Maura: So let’s do one more thing that we’re known for, which is that we’re very polite.
Harp: Almost to the point that we’re boring.
Maura: Yes. But very polite and not necessarily arrogant or aggressive, but a quieter kind of people, I think.
Harp: Yeah, that’s definitely the image we have; we’re peaceful, polite. That’s what a lot of people think of when they think of Canada.
Maura: And it’s so nice, but it is; it sounds so boring, Harp.
Harp: It does. But in another way, I think it sounds nice.

    Hi, I want to compliment with you all for your effort and the very good job that you’ve been doing to help people learn English. I’m from Italy and there is a dispute about who invented the telephone between Bell and Meucci.
    (see http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telefono)
    I wish I could visit Canada one day because it has very beautiful landscape and lakes.

    I LOVE Michael J. Fox, he’s the best! I like Michael Cera too.

    Interesting link, Giovanni. I’ve also heard of other items being invented at almost the same time by more than one person.

    I like Michael Cera. Arrested Development is one of my favourite shows and he was on it. Do you know it?
