How generous are you? One Toronto actor decided to try and find out. In the video below, he dressed up as a homeless person and stationed himself in a Canadian city, then an American one. The video recorded him over the course of 30 minutes, to see just how often people would help him out. The difference is staggering.
In Canada, 11 different people offered him money or help over the course of the half hour. One of them was homeless herself. Meanwhile, in America, not a single person even acknowledged his existence, except for one random guy who seemed to yell at him. So, what we've all believed is totally true. Canadians are way nicer than Americans.
