I am an American, however about 20 years ago, I moved to Canada. Frankly I love it in Canada. It is a clean, orderly country that is multicultural
and it seems to genuinely try to provide an environment that is condusive to a gentle and caring life-style. Oh, certainly, Canada has it's problems
but so does every country. It is simply a decent place to live, raise a family and to pursue ones' personal interests and aspirations.
Don't get me wrong, however, I am an American. The United States is a truly wonderful place to live. And, chiefly because of it's size and
population and unbridled press, the problems of the US are magnified -- often entirely out of proportion. It is truly a place where one can chase
their dreams. However, as I mentioned previously, the US does have its' share of problems. Every country has positives and negatives. Too often,
when viewing the US, people tend to dwell upon it's negative aspects while entirely ignoring most of the positive ones.
Nevertheless, Canada is "my" land of opportunity and it suits me just fine.
