When it comes to the difference between Canadians and Americans, rapper NAV says the main disparity is politeness.
According to the Rexdale native, Canadians have their parents to thank for “teaching us things” like respectful behaviour “from back home,” he recently said, referring to Canada’s large immigrant population.
“I think we just have more manners,” the musician, 33, told a San Francisco radio host last week while visiting the California city for one of his “Never Sleep” tour performances.

“I feel like there’s more chances to run into a New York a**hole in New York than it is in Toronto,” he added.
While NAV clarified that he still thinks there are plenty of nice Americans, he explained he mainly notices the difference in politeness when thanking waiters in the U.S., noting that they usually respond with “mhm” rather than “you’re welcome.”
