Result
Well, you're clearly not a Canadian, but at least you got the easy ones - the ones that have made it into other languages, particularly American English. Some of these phrases are much tougher to know about unless you have some kind of connection to Canada, so don't beat yourself up too bad!

Are you Canadian yourself? You must be, at least partially, with a score this high! How else would you know this much about Canadian slang and other terms? Some of these were super obscure and barely ever make it into the U.S., but you nailed even those. Great work!
