10. There’s a mysterious hum
If the US somehow hadn’t done enough over the years to annoy Canada, we have certainly managed to get the attention of Windsorites with the vibrations of Zug Island; you know, that island in the river with all the charms of a would-be love child should Chernobyl and Gotham City ever procreate. Residents of one Windsor neighborhood reported a strange-yet-maddening hum beginning in the summer of 2011. All signs point to the hum emanating from Zug.
11. It has the best Italian restaurants. For real.
Windsor’s Little Italy district is equal parts quaint, authentic, and touristic. Between 1920 and 1930, the number of Italian immigrants in Windsor tripled, bringing with them culinary traditions that have stood the test of time.
12. Canadians really are that polite. Like, almost unsettlingly polite.
But don’t get used to it. The US Border Patrol will be there to take you off your happy little maple-leaf emblazoned cloud and put you right back in your place.
