The line is "When in Rome, do as the Romans do". When you move to or spend time in a country - you're adopting a culture, you should do everything you can do to fit in rather than expect it to accommodate you.

If I move to Canada or Japan or Denmark, even just temporarily - I take it as a matter of course that I need to adapt to local customs, etiquette, etc.

Well Canada is just a backwards America, its not all that different cept they put maple syrup on their suasage which is infact delicious. Difference is East and west becomes a really sharp contrast for many Americans and the extremely foreign nature of the culture shift is probably harder to adopt then say going to denmark. It doesn't excuse not trying to fit in but it does expalin the adversity to actually fit into asian society and culture.

I'm already halfway to Canada then - I love maple syrup on sausage and bacon

I was simply using countries I've either been to or there's a fair chance of me living there in the future. I simply assert that anyone moving to *any* country should expect to have to leave a lot of mental and cultural baggage behind and work hard to adapt to their new home.

Same here. Watch as people in Macdonalds stare at me asking for Maplesyrup for my Sausage Mcmuffin.
