I am an American who has lived in Canada for over twenty years. I used to go back to the states to visit family but I find that my visits to the states are not as frequent. However, on a recent visit, I was surprised to hear Americans deriding Canada on a number of topics, especially on Canada's refusal to participate in an anti missile program. This has led me to ask the perinent questions; What do Americans think of Canada? Do Americans still consider Canada to be an ally? Do Americans even care about Canada as a friend and neighbor? Canada has had such a long and friendly relationship with the United States that I think it is important that issues concerning this alliance be re-examined.

When Canada voted down their participation in the U.S. anti ballistic missile program tests, it seems that many Americans have mistaken this as being ANTI AMERICAN rather than viewing it as something that Canadians wanted. I find it curious that this American reaction does not take into account the Canadian democratic right to refuse.

I view it kind of like France: beautiful country, horrible people.

Hmmm, well, the strip clubs are a hell of alot better then in the states. And damn those women are fine!

And since I am not a republican I don't consider Canadians evil devil worshipping baby eating liberals but allies. Why I want to take over Canada, with 30million+ Liberals we can take the nation back from the people who turned the Greatest Economy into one equal to the Great Depression.

Canada has always been famed for it's scenic beauty. On this point, you certainly have made a correct observation. As far as Canada being a country of thirty plus million liberals, I think you may be mistaken. The liberal party in Canada is deeply mired in a political payoff scandal which, for all intents and purposes, will surely lead to a new election which the Liberals cannot be certain of winning.

Dang it, I stopped watching CBC once Made in Canada stopped being shown. But there were so many liberals, what happened? What about my plan to unite us and take back the country for the people who don't want to go back to the 1200's? What about the people who want everyone equal, not "3% rich people good, everyone else 2nd class citizens."

Oh well, go Canada! Love Rick Mercer and Steve Smith, the shows they are on are great!

Note: The liberals up here are not that numerous. The Liberal Party of Canada is moderate to the point of near neutrality. Yes, the elusive concept of moderation has raised its head! Can das amerikanski fathom the meaning of such a word?

I like Canada, and always have. It is Europe mixed with the New World. The best of both.

Backyard. Expansion pack. Scapegoat.

I actually don't think much of Canada. Not in a bad way, but in a "Oh, Canada? Yeah, what about it?" way. It's kind of like Brazil. Big country, there's a bunch of good stuff to come out of it, and there's tons of cool stuff about it, but really, who cares?

Besides, we've all heard the joke about "The Tragedy of Canada."

No real big problems with Canada here.

While I think Canada in general is a little too liberal for my liking, I still like Canada. Canadians seem to be friendlier than us Americans, especially when you're not too close to the border.

I've also been in Toronto's subways. Really nice.

I agree with you totally. I go there pretty much yearly because I have family in Toronto. I've ridden the TTC buses and subways and it is a lot nicer than the ones in NYC.

The people there ARE a lot nicer. Especially the girls
but in general, too. Their outlook on things are a more positive than from what I've seen here in NY. Some people may call it "USA Lite" and that is what it seems like, but Canada has its own identity and in my opinion trumps the US in quite a few ways. Specifically healthcare...

I'm also going there again this summer... my aunt's getting married... and hopefully, I'll find a cute girl to canoodle with in my time there...


Too bad I can't really do that here... for some reason the girls like me more up there than here. Darn.

OMG!!!

Americans actually think about us?!?!?!?!?!?


Aside of the insecurity complex it gives us, I think I prefer when you forget we are here. Then we can just go along our merry way, without interference.

Not yet, but where I live it might as well be.

Dont worry James, we'd all band together to whine about healthcare. The problem is actually getting us to go vote.

I've been to Canada quite a few times (only Ontario, Quebec, NS and BC though) and I find it superior to America in almost all respects. Crime rate, drug laws, multiculturalism, open-mindedness, women, attitudes, etc. Things that are missing in most of the US. I can actually walk through downtown Toronto in the middle of the night and feel reasonably safe....I guess that evil LIBERAL attitude has some advantages, eh?

My only problem is the whole alcohol monopoly thing. I don't know whether this is all of Canada or just Tornoto. It's lame not being able to by beer in any grocery store or gas station. I don't like having to go to The Beer Store and order my beer like it's a prescription.


My other problem...Alberta. Join the US why don't you? *does mocking Yosemite Sam firing guns up in the air thing*

Ok...I have one other problem. The Conservative party that's trying to destroy Canada's uniqueness and make it into a mini-America. And the Liberal party whose corruption is going to help them get their way...:bnghd:

Flinx, I think you hit the nail on the head.

BTW, in BC you can get "off sales", booze bought from a bar for regular prices, unless they changed in the last 20 years and in Que. and NB you can buy it in conv. stores.

When I think of Canada I think of moose, syrup, and bacon.
