Good sir, you bring up an extremely controversial and hot topic to the table. Like you, I too have an opinion (just like everyone else in existence).
However, the great thing about life is that the majority of the time, only one opinion is right.
But I'm not about to make that judgment.
I would say that as a Canadian myself, I would be strong against a complete annexation of Canada, dissolving our national identity to match that of
our southern comrades. I don't believe such an event would happen without large amounts of violence. My fellow populace is extremely against such a
move as we value the things that make Canada special. Many people insist that Canada is like America, just without America's flaws. Am I about to
condone this statement and regard this as fact? I am not in a position to do so, thus I will not. However, Canadians can be patriotic (besides Hockey
and beer) when they need to be, and when there is discussion over the United States, I can assure you that such suggestions do not go over well with
the typical Canadian.
Now, this isn't to be offensive, but rather, honest. Canadians pride themselves in being a western nation, but not like America. The boarder that
separates us acts as a remarkable defensive tool on the global stage, and we are generally seen as much different than the average American.
I too, like the American founders, have a dream, and that dream is to annex the top layer of states in America. This would assimilate cities like
Minneapolis, Chicago, and Seattle. However, just because someone has a dream, doesn't mean it's a good one, amIrite?
Point is, I'm Canadian, and I love it. I'm not an American. I can assure you that you will find similar attitudes all across Canada. Except in
Alberta that is.
