They should just create a line where everything is as offensively named as possible and get it over with.

Works like that here too. Depends on how it's used- using it to refer to Asian people? No. But a word/phrase like, say... "Oriental rug" is commonplace.

I think it depends on region for Canadians, though. Canada is big, with lots of cultural influences.
