From my experience, Americans don't like how Canadians do things, and Canadians don't like how Americans do things, but both nations care about each others' people and have some admiration for each culture. After all most Canadians have American family members and many Americans, including myself, have Canadian family members.
One thing Americans do, and Canadian's don't, is believe there is no difference between the two countries' cultures.

As a country I really couldn't answer the question one way or the other, but as an American citizen, I can personally say that I have no issues with Canadians, and treat them no different than I would treat any other American.
I'm about an hour or so from the Saskatchewan/Manitoba borders, and end up interacting with our neighbors to the north on a near-daily basis, and if it weren't for the accents and patterns of speech, (aboot, warsh, eh?), you wouldn't be able to tell them apart from anyone else here.

I care about humanity, not just Canada or the US, it matters to me what happens to the world as a whole, and all who inhabit it.
What I don't care for is corrupt governments, tyranny, abuse, mass murder through false wars. And being manipulated, socially engineered, brainwashed, over-taxed and under payed.
I see corruption at all levels of all governments, and the promises of a new world order, is really a promise of tyranny and oppression.
I live in Canada, but my loyalty is to the entire world, not just one country. Not that I don't love my country or care about it, I just see far beyond borders, cultures and beliefs. We are one. We should care for each other as we are all united, connected and intertwined in all things.
All in the same boat called Earth.
My ideal New World Order, would be a world with no government, no corruption and humanity working together to heal the planet and explore and colonize space.

I am a dual American/Canadian. I have citizenship in both countries, and family in both countries. We're connected in so many ways that I think it is impossible to ignore each other in any sense. I live right on the border so I'm in either Washington or BC on a fairly regular basis and besides going through customs, it feels the same on each side. Anti-Canadianism in the US (think Southpark Movie) and Anti-Americanism in Canada do exist, but Canadians hate their own government sometimes just as much as Americans don't agree with theirs. If the border dissapeared tommorow and it was all one big country, i honestly don't think that it would make much difference. Believe it or not Canadians can own guns, and Americans can go to the doctor. All these stereotypes and rumours about what life is like on the other side is mostly garbage. So, yes, I care what happens, no matter which of my countries it happens in.

Of course Americans and Canadians care about each other. We understand We Are All But One. Ironically, both our governments don't.
