|A Syrian arrives in Toronto as a new immigrant to Canada. He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. Canadian, for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, income support, free medical care, free housing and a free education!"
The passer-by says, "You are mistaken, I am Egyptian."
The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in Canada."
The person says, "I am not Canadian, I am Pakistani."
The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, "Thank you for wonderful country Canada."
That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Afghanistan. I am not Canadian."
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you a Canadian woman?"
She says, "No, I am from Africa." Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Canadians?"
The African lady checks her watch and says, "Probably at work."
