So what part of Canada are you from?

Closest I have been is Niagara Falls Canada. Funny story, I was over there the first time and drove a bunch of friends (Designated driver) Well we are coming home still in Canada and I am going down the road doing 80 MPH and a cop swings in behind me and pulls me over. He comes up as says "Do you know how fast you were going sir?" to which I replied "Yea, 80 MPH I love it here" He looks at me and says "The sign says 80 Kilometers Per Hour" to which I replied "What they heck are Kilometers?" He looked at me for a second and says "Do you see those little orange numbers underneath the Miles Per Hour?" To which I relied "Yea" He says "Those are Kilometers and you were exceeding the speed limit by about 30 KPH"  To which I replied "So that's what those things are, I always wondered" He looks at me again and asked me where we are heading and I tell him home. He asks us where that is and how we intend to get there and then he says he will follow us to the Rainbow Bridge and make sure we get on it because it is a half hour before his shift ends and he does not want to do a bunch or paperwork on 5 tourists because he just wants to go home.

I don't speed in Canada anymore.

As another aside, in 2017 my wife and I visited Glacier National Park, MT. We did not bring our passports as we didn't
think we would have the time to visit Waterton Park or the International Peace Bridge.
But, as it turned out-we decided to drive up to the small Canadian/U.S. Border station called the Chief-Waterton station.
The Canadian Inspector, a Mr. Blackthorn asked our nationality and wished to see our passports.

As a retired US INS/ICE Special Agent, I always carry my badge/retired credential. There were no other cars behind us.
The Inspector had a bemused look on his face as I also showed him a card given to me by an RCMP Constable "in case I ever needed it in Canada".
At this point, Mr. Blackthorn explained that HE decided who was allowed to come into Canada, even those undesirables with passports.
Then he asked if I was armed, and I replied not at present-my pistol was back in our camper at Glacier Park. He then said:" Welcome to Canada, stay as long as you like."  A nice welcome to Canada.
