In the tech industry, other nationalities say it’s harder to solve the problem when working with Canadians because they explain a problem in a strange way that makes it harder for other nationalities to figure it out. Canadians have a tendency to not use “harsh” words when communicating, which I can see why that would be a problem when talking about something that is broken and trying to figure out how to fix it. But I am used to it, I guess.
    whats more amazing that a delicate, subtle conversation where one gives only tiny hints and references and others get what he or she means. To me that is already a sign of a more advanced culture. I mean where a higher percentage of the population is capable of communicating in that way.

    Makes me wonder the difference, because people in the Americas of European descent are more like you, generally. I know they theory behind the way Canadians communicate with eachother (stereotypically polite, kind of indirect, or “politically correct”) is that because of the harsh winters and short crop growing seasons here (in the old days, about half of European settlers died the first winter), people had to depend on eachother for survival, so it was necessary to not piss people off in case you needed food or warm clothes or something later. Maybe something similar elsewhere in the Americas, because it was the frontier and there were hazards like wild animals and bad weather, as well as outlaws running around because in the early days, it was lawless in some parts, that could kill people.
    Yeh, ma dad is a white american. and yeah i guess thats true.

    and you could be right there LOL maybe das why canadians always apologize :^)

    That's the theory. When you have 9 months of winter, it might have been a death sentence for you and your family 200 years ago if people were pissed off at you. So, you tried to stay on everybody's good side in case you needed help in the future.
