Canada's international image is getting knocked about lately...

The latest comes from the Philippines, calling Canada stupid. It hasn't been getting a lot of Canadian coverage, but the gushy skit from Saturday Night Live, got a lot.

Canadians pride themselves on their image of politeness, but lately, a tide is turning. Last year, China had harsh words about Canadian journalists. Then Trump came with his two attacks on Canada, calling the country "smooth," and then the Indian government also had their moment.

And now add the Philippines on that list.

It is not earth-shattering, but a turning tide doesn't begin that way. The international slagging is a decided shift, and it will be interesting to see where it all goes from here...
