Unwritten Canadian Rules

What are some of the unwritten rules once you get assimilated into Canada ? Let me keep it to 15. And please suggest more in the comments if you have some!

1. Hold the door for others.
2. Every road trip starts with a stop at Tim Hortons.
3. Take off your hat and shoes when entering the home.
4. The left lane is the passing lane on the highway (except in Toronto).
5. Respect the environment, National and Provincial Parks.
6. Don’t talk about religion or politics unless it’s brought up in a meaningful way.
7. Respect the diversity of ALL cultures, and their relationship to Canadian culture as a whole.
8. Don’t talk down to service workers, blue collar workers and others. Don't talk down to ANY one based on their job alone.
9. Say Sorry and Thank You, even when its not your fault.
10. Try to keep your property clean. Grass well kept. Garbage cleaned up.
11. In an escalator, stand on the right and walk on the left.
12. If you have a powerful snowblower help your neighbours with the mountain of snow left by the snowplow.
13. It is customary to have ten reasons to explain why we are better than the Americans.
14. Know which Hollywood and Broadway actor, actress, director, singer is actually Canadian.
15. Be proud of the fact that we are Canadian and Canada is one of the top places in the world to live in.
