A Very Serious Question.

Why are people from Canada called Canadians? Why not Canadans? I mean...
Ethiopia → Ethiopians

Australia → Australians

Macedonia → Macedonians

Virginia → Virginians

but...
Libya → Libyans

Cuba → Cubans

Andorra → Andorrans

Uganda → Ugandans

Seriously, Canada, what's up with the extra i, huh?

I think you should drop it. It looks a bit pretentious on you.
