As far as Canadians are concerned, I found them very friendly and
willing to help no matter how you ask. Except for Ottawa. I'm not sure
if that happened because it was a very cold late afternoon and
everybody was rushing home, but they refused to say anything when asked for information. As for
other cities (Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal), they always replied
very nicely. I'd reccommend you to be simple and polite when asking.
Excuse-me. Could you tell me what time it is?
Do you happen to know the way to ...?
You should try to know a little bit about the customs or habits of other people before you approach them to ask a question.
