You are obviously terribly uninformed about Canadians. This NAU won't give us a better life, it will drag us down to your standard of living and
force us to join on Bush's warmongering. Our standards for food, medication, health, and safety are far superior to yours. Most of the beef that you
grade 1A would be used for hamburger up here. We don't have constant recalls for produce for ecoli, because we don't allow that sort of thing to
happen. We don't want your social problems and crime up here. We don't have the sort of bigotry and racial tensions that you have.
I enjoy a life with all the modern conveniences. Our infrastructure is built more solid, although older than yours. When we get the same storm that
Washington state does, we watch on TV how they don't have power and won't for several days. We aren't censored and searched, we don't sit
suspicious that are neighbours are terrorists. We don't have gang wars going on in our major cities.
That said, if I want to purchase a firearm(and I have several) I go down to the gun store and buy one. I can pick up ammo at Walmart or Canadian Tire
any day. If I get sick, I go to my doctor without fear that I will be billed. If I am really hurt and go to the hospital for a couple weeks, they
don't mortgage my house to pay for it, it's already paid for. I can walk anywhere I want without fear of attack. I pay a little more for gas, but my
roads aren't grid locked with millions of cars. My air is fresh and clean, and my water is drinkable.
My country doesn't invent wars to fight, but we fulfill all our NATO and UN obligations without question, because we respect the treaties that we
sign. Unlike some countries south of us. All in all, the worst thing that could happen to us is to be tied to the US in this NAU. It's just another
attempt from the US government to gain Manifest Destiny and grab our resources.
