Learn The Lingo: 10 Slang Terms in Canada
It’s day three of your trip to Canada and you’ve already been asked if you packed your toque (pronounced toohk) and whether or not you have any loonies in your pocket.

But don’t worry: this story will help you navigate the nation’s thorny linguistic jungle as if you were born here.
