- Feb 1, 2004Hi Bob & All:
It's spelled Canuck. I believe it started being used during one of the
wars, maybe even WWI. The soldier was called Johnny Canuck & was the hero
in comic books.
No one minds being called Canuck, I don't think. Canada is so multicultural
though, that it somehow doesn't fit the anglo perception of those bygone
days. There are, for example, over 100 languages spoken in Toronto. So no
doubt Tiquismos are heard therein.
