Why aren't Canadians more like Australians?

I was in the midst of a heated MSN discussion today and found myself lost for a turn of phrase. The only thing that popped to mind was 'fair dinkum'.
Where's the original Canuck phrase when you need it? Those Australians are light years ahead of us when it comes to language.
I mean, what do we have. Toque, Zamboni, Canoe, Eh. Much harder words to work into everyday conversation. Well ok, eh is pretty easy - but a lot less cool.
Right after Japan, I think I'm going to swing over to Oz - I wonder what percentages are like over there? Think they'd be higher if I throw around words like Toque?
