A British Columbia man captured video of his uniquely Canadian encounter with a family of bears that responded to his politeness.

Jordan Cote posted a video to Facebook showing what happened when he went outside his Sooke home Sept. 18 and found a mother bear and her two cubs wandering around his yard.

"I need you guys to go," Cote says in the video. "OK? I need you to go."

"Thank you," he says as the bears comply with his request. "I gotta go to work. Hope you enjoyed my yard! Have a good day! Bye now!"

Cote wrote the video shows "how a Canadian responds to wildlife."

He said the incident began when he heard a tenant's dog barking outside.

"I didn't even realize what was going on until I walked around the corner and the two cubs were attached to the mama bear's leg," Cote told CTV Vancouver. "[The dog] didn't leave the deck area and the bears never approached her. They kept their distance."

Cote said he took the dog inside and returned moments later to film the bears.

"The whole encounter is so casual. I'm like, this is Canada," he said. "If you remain calm, the bear remains calm. We all can co-exist."
