What are "typical low-key Canadians"?

Although I've never been to the Toronto International Film Festival, I love following the news about the movies and stars from afar. A recent news item in E! Online made me pause, though. Here it is in part:
A small and polite group of local protesters—who may have been part of a publicity stunt or just your typical low-key Canadians—were trying to save the soul of Bill Maher and damn his religion-mocking film, Religulous.
There are no shortage of references to how low-key, polite and nice the Canadians are. I agree that attitudes are calmer north of the 49th Parallel. And yeah, for the most part, people are pretty darn nice in Canada.

I don't know why -- but it's not a bad thing.
