That was a joke. Let me tell you the reason why it is funny...
How do you get a Canadian to apologize?
Q: How do you get a Canadian to apologize? A: Step on their foot.
This is another Canadian joke. The humor in this one is that Canadians are so polite that they would apologize to you even if you did something bad to them like stepping on their foot. I suppose that this is an insult toward them because it insinuates that they are too polite.
