Ah I get it now.

You, Canadians, are allowed to use outdated stereotypes. Because winning the gold medal disproved the stereotypes empirically.

We Swedes, on the other hand, are not. Alfie is just an exception to the rule.

Because we're talking about very outdated stereotypes here. Any suggestion to the contrary reeks of nationalistic chauvinism.
