well finally after reading 10 pages I would like to say a few things
to the people talking about the war of 1812 America did in fact attack first (and got their butt's kicked I might add) and I might be mistaken but I
believe that when we burned down the white house
1 it wasn’t the white house yet is was just the presidents house (when they rebuilt it they didn’t know what colour to paint it so they left it
2 (this is what I might be wrong about) We didn’t burn down the presidents house until after the war of 1812
And for all of you (many) people who keep commenting things like "I don’t care" you should because even though they may be teenagers now they will
grow up to be in control of the country and if u want are help in a war (again) and if it actually has a purpose (unlike Vietnam and Iraq) don’t
expect to get it with people who think your "evil" in charge (not that I agree with them)
Also if u don’t care then why post?
About the Fox news unfortunately it isn’t in Canada (along with other American channels like TNT ext)
On another note Canadians aren’t uneducated about American history, by the time their 18 they should know plenty about it, and for the people saying
America had a very good history just lately has been a little rocky, I can name many times in history when you have done something sinister (like for
example when working on the railroads bringing over Chinese/Coolies to work on it promising to pay them enough so that later they could bring over the
rest of their family, but cheating them and in the end they would be in debt)

no we just think canada is weird
Canada is by far the greatest country this world has ever seen, hands down. Take the best of all the other countries in the world and put them
together, you get Canada.
Yeah, if you leave Quebec out of the equation.

This is just great - 40% of teenagers feel the US is evil.
OK, well if we are sooooooo evil, maybe we should just cut all ties with them. Then the Canadian economy falls, and they can't buy computer or pay
there phone bills. Then 100% would hate us, but hey - at least they would be justified.
Yes we would loose 20 % of exports but u would loose 17% of your imports (not to mention 20% of your oil imports) and we would have no trouble finding
other countries to trade with

I sure it has to do with the Stanley Cup, the last Canadian team to win the cup was the Montreal Canadians in 1993. OUCH..........
Sadly true but we came awfully close last season (when my fan crazy home team Calgary should have won it in game 6 in overtime) it’s a conspiracy to
stop the Canadians from winning!! Also though u have to keep in mind more then half of American’s team’s players are Canadian.

60% of Western Canadians think central Canada is evil but then "they" control the media. (Central Libs that is). Therefore all the negative crap
coming out of so called Canada is really coming from Quebec & Ontario.
Western Canadians love Americans.
Yeah here in Alberta we might have had are disagreements and reasons to be mad at America (like BSE and closing the boarders) and we still don’t
really like your government (in class we had a vote and I think 90% of the people hated/ thought George Bush was evil for numerous reasons) but we
don’t hate your people, and in Alberta were not liberal at all (thank god)
