Canada is a massive country, with all kinds of quirks that might not be immediately apparent to visitors.
Spring and summer in the Great White North, for example, are more like concepts or metaphors than actual, distinct seasons of the year.
To help the rest of the world understand Canada's oddities, helpful Canadians have shared what they know on Twitter using the hashtag #LittleKnownCanadianLaws.
There are some helpful tips on the art of the apology, for example:
An apology before and after a murder gets the case dismissed. #LittleKnownCanadianLaws— Shea Browning (@SheaBrowning) July 25, 2018
You must apologize in both English and French. #LittleKnownCanadianLaws— What a Stupid Time to be Alive (@mrd125) July 25, 2018
Some provided some important information on how to deal with moose:

At a 4 way stop, if you arrive at the same time, the Moose always has the right of way.
Crucial culinary rules were shared:

Of course, plenty of people had some hockey-related tips:

Canadian Tire jumped in:
Any household that does not have a drawer stuffed with Canadian Tire money is subject to a fine of $2, payable in Canadian Tire Money. #LittleKnownCanadianLaws— Canadian Tire (@CanadianTire) July 25, 2018
And, of course, a hashtag on fake Canadian laws wouldn't be complete without an official police account joining in:
It's still illegal to possess marijuana without a prescription #LittleKnownCanadianLaws— York Regional Police (@YRP) July 25, 2018
Thanks, everyone. Great job!
Head to Twitter for more brilliant, absolutely unreal Canadian laws.
