 Did You Know: 

Canadians say “sorry” so much that a law was passed so that an apology can’t be used as an admission of guilt. Canadians are well-known for being incredibly polite, perhaps even to a fault. That’s why in 2009, the province of Ontario passed the “Apology Act,” which states that saying “sorry”—which can be an expression of sympathy or regret—can’t legally be considered an admission of guilt or fault.
