The term Canuck originates back to Johnny Canuck, a character who appeared in Canadian political cartoons back in 1869, and was also recycled as a cartoon character who fought all kinds of evil including Adolph Hitler during the second World War. Canuck is also a slang term for Canadian, similar to how Yankee is a slang term for Americans.
