Cannuck = Canadian

 

I've heard almost all the expression you list, but there are some that do not appear to be written correctly.  Possibly some are unique to Canada.

 

In Vancouver I found a hilarious book entitled "Canajian Eh?"  It was full of funny Canadian expressions and slight distortions of pronunciation.  "The Unguarded Front Ear", for example, referred to "the Unguarded Frontier".  It also listed a couple dozen ways to use "Eh" in a sentence.
