Actually, I live walking distance to Canada.
When I was a kid I thought Canadians were anyone who looked different. I thought a person from a foreign country was supposed to look foreign

But, the comment about American being Canada's toilet is more or less true.

Actually, SE Michigan is Toronto's garbage dump. Thanks to greed on the part of a small Michigan town and Toronto's dislike for dealing with their own trash and recyclables---since I'm told Toronto doesn't recycle

I don't know what I find funnier...the fact that some people got sooooo upset when I bashed back at Canada in response to this thread


the fact that I am Canadian.

Yes, I know many Canadians that talk smack about America yet it's still their preferred choice for TV, getting gas, shopping, vacations, etc so it can't be THAT bad.

As for my comments, can't win them all and perhaps I was missing a few filters between my brain and hands, but what you witnessed above was a "your momma is so fat..." conversation in my mind and it all started with "we laugh at you behind your backs."

Let me state that is not true. Canadians would laugh at your face too. Especially if there is beer around.

Now, lighten up and chill eh?

Toronto does have a recycling program for residential homes called the Green Bin program. They also have plenty of recycling centres around the city. If they aren't recylcling, it's not because they don't have the facilities.

They really need to build a new dump. Bloody NIMBYism. :shk: If Michigan stops taking it, they'll just dump it all in London.

I don’t think Canada and the U.S. are that different.
Heck when we visit other nations we have to wear flags just so they can tell the difference.

I know what you mean about the flag comment... all the time backpacking in Europe you would see Canadians with the big Maple Leaf Flag on their backpack. Actually got into some pretty funny discussions, since most of them were from non-border areas.

I live in Michigan near the border. It is weird that Toronto can't find someplace in Canada to dump it's own trash, it's frickin huge. We are pretty much the same yet different, as it should be with friendly neighbors. They have better beer and cleaner cities, we have better movies, TV, music and garbage dumps I guess. I don't think one side or the other should disparage the other for what they are. The U.S. is a world leader, who declared independence from England, Canada is still a member of the Commonwealth. Big deal, both nations share many of the same values and beliefs.

I happen to love Canada, it's a great place and we are lucky to have them as a neighbor. My Canadian friends say the same about us. It's only people that don't interact with each other and have preconceived ideas that get it wrong.

BTW, if you want to try mayo and many other things on french fries, go to Belgium....mmm and even more potent beer than Canada! MMMMM

How'd you manage to forget economic might, military power, and worldwide influence? Or ingenuity, missile defense
and technology? Don' even get me started. Canada is not the USA. But it is a cherished neighbor nonetheless, which I would imagine will always be protected if the stink happens to hit the fan, and whose people I happen to adore.

i dunno about all that, but i do know that canada is totally awesome for 2 reasons:

1 - in order to live in that cold, those people gotta get drunk, a lot. and that's rad.

2 - hot chicks. i'm f'real.

it's sort of like that beach that only the locals know, where everyone is friendly and having a great time. beers are flowing, woman are in bikini's and men are in short shorts. if you go see the man with the red hat you can get some chocolate mushrooms, or a trip on a boat to that cool little island out there. it's a secret, and no one wants too many people to know about it because then it will be overcome by jerks and tourists. sure maybe a few miles away there is a big popular beach where you can get fish and chips and a pepsi and its nice and corporate with a shop near by to get a moose t-shirt, but thats great because thats where we want you to go. And by "you" i mean, know who you are. It all comes down to an attitude, and I'm just not sure that some americans are aware of how obvious it is. I'm not going to apologise for anything i've said here in this forum, I think if you reread the comments i've said calmly and without that big blue and white flag flapping at your brain you will see that i was just trying to give you some raw honest insight. I'm not going to spoon feed it to you. If you look hard enough in the other direction, you will always find people who agree with you too. I'm just speaking as someone who loves everyone, Americans definitley included. it's like those people on t.v auditioning for the latest reality talent show, some of them have obviously been lied to there whole life, they are not talented, and they will never make it ever, someone has been gentle to them up untill that point, giving them the "soft" answers and the safe praise, eventually everyone either meets the actuall truth, or steps off there 5 minutes into a bowl of coke or a bucket of jesus.

And maple! I demand that you recognize that we also taste like maple!!!

thunder, you weren't being bullied. The fact is, nobody likes to see his or her country attacked that directly by other posters. There is a difference between criticism of another country's policies (Bush's stance on Lebanon is flawed and biased and not conducive to Middle East peace) and downright attacks (Americans are imperialistic bullies who want to rule the world). I remember how many attacks on France and the French in general there were on ATS two years ago, and how surprised the people doing the attacking were when the few French posters on the board didn't collectively hang their heads in shame, recognize they were indeed smelly cheese eaters and beg forgiveness, but actually fought back. The same can be said with any nationality. I will come out with guns blazing against anyone who insults my country, and I don't blame American posters for doing the same.

And to add to the fun part of the topic...

On behalf of Canada, I will apologize to all Americans for Celine Dion, William Shatner and Paul Anka.

In return, I will demand that Americans apologize to all Canadians for Lawrence Welk, Britney Spears and Wayne Newton.
