Transcript

I really like the people, because they're very friendly.

Whenever you go to a store, or a restaurant, the people are extremely nice.

And if anything goes wrong, they always say "sorry" a million times, because the people in Canada are very nice. If you ever don't have battery in your phone, or you need money, you can go up to anyone, and they will treat you like you're family.

So, I think, that's why I really like Canada because of the people, and their personality, the personality is very nice and friendly.
