A laid-back coutnry to the north of the United States. Our healthcare is free, no matter your income. If you need an operation, you get it, no charge. We brew some of the world's best beer here, and we're not ashamed to say that we like to drink a fair amount of it. No, we don't have a large military, but in essence, we really don't need one. We prefer to just mind our own business and have a good time. Actually, Canada has one of the proudest military histories in the world. We were the only country to be on our D-Day beachhead on time on D-Day. We proudly fought for and liberated numerous European town during both World Wars. Canadian were responsible for liberating the Netherlands during World War 2, something of which we are very proud. We are not a nation to hold grudges, and we are both proud and happy to say that no nation on earth is our enemy, and no nation on earth views Canada as their enemy. If we so choose, we can walk down the street smoking a joint, without having to worry about being hassled by the police, because we are mature and enlightened enough to realize that if a person wants to smoke a joint in peace then they should be left alone. By the way, we grow some of the best marijuana on earth. We don't say "eh", a lot and when we do, it's not in the way most non-Canadians think. When we say "eh", it's like saying "huh"? (eg. It's really cold out here, huh?" We DO NOT say "eh" after sentences like "Welcome to Toronto", or "Please pass the potatoes". It is a place where kids don't have to feel threatened walking home late at night. WE are a nation of "pleases" and "thank-yous". We are almost polite to a fault. When two Canadian argue over a parking spot, it often sounds like this:
Canuck 1: "You take it, you were here first. Canuck 2: "No, you take it, you saw it first." Canuck 1: "No, I insist, you take the spot." We have some of the world's most amazing scenery, and our streets, even in large urban centres, are very clean. We are very proud to have Toronto, the most multi-cultural city on earth, and home to some of the best bars and nightclubs around. We like to embrace people from all over the world into our neighbourhoods, as we value diversity, rather than fera it. Canadians realize that we can collectively learn from other cultures to improve our overall quality of life. In Canada, we really don't have a problem with same-sex marraige. It is legal here, and we see no reason why it should not be. We don't see any reason why anyone under the age of 18, and 19 in some cases shouldn't be able to drink alcohol. Contrary to what a lot of people may think, we are not a nation of hunters and fisherman, and it is not cold here 24/7. We have great summers, where it often reaches 100 degrees farenheit during June, July and August in a number of areas. We not only beleive in, we enforce equal rights for all, regardless of any factors like age, race, etc. If a woman wants to walk down the street topless in Canada, she is legally allowed. If men can do it, why can't women? We also allow women the right to an abortion if she so chooses. We do like our hockey in Canada, but we are not utterly consumed by it, as some would imagine. We just like to enjoy a game now and then with our friends while sipping on a few beers. We beleive in peacekeeping, not warfare. For Canadians, war is a last resort. The last war we have been involved in was World War 2. We do not, however, mind lending our armed forces to peacekeeping efforts and disaster clean-ups. Canada is home to some of the world's finest educational institutons, where our students can attend for very little in comaprison to other areas of the world. A typical year of university in Canada costs about $4500. We love our American neighbors to the south, even though we sometimes have our petty squabbles and such. In short, we are a peaceful country with a very liberal outlook on things, similar to what you may find in countries such as Sweden and the Netherlands.
Canada: What a great country!

Hey,
I am not a lumber jack or a fur trader,
and I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber or own a dog sled,
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzie from Canada although I am certain they're really, really nice, uh,
I have a Prime Minster not a president,
I speak English and French, not American,
and I pronounce it about, not a boot,
I can proudly sew my country's flag on my back pack,
I believe in peace keeping, not policing, diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch.
And it is pronounced zed, not zee, zed.
Canada is the second largest landmass,
the first nation of hockey,
and the best part of North America.
thank you very much!

One of America's best allies. There is no reason for Americans to bash Canada or Canadians to bash America. God bless Canada and God bless America. May the two wonderful nations live together in harmony.
America: I love you, Canada!!
Canada: I love you too, America!!

Canada is a country directly above my own. We have many things in common. How about I list some?
1)We both use maple syrup like crazy.(We have something called IHOP)
2)We both play hockey (personally I dont)
3)We both buy and sell products with each other
4)We both have thousands of hypocritical asses who post their intellectually devoid "insults" on urbandictionary.com

Our large neighbor to the north. Largest chief cities include Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnepeg, Vancouver, and Calgary. They have the flag with the well-known maple leaf in the center. They are not cowards and pansies contrary to popular belief. Canada sent thousands of soldiers to fight and die in World War I, and again in World War II, and even joined our coalition against the Communists during the Korean War.
I don't think they are weak at all. I earnestly hope that the United States and Canada shall become allies. I would be proud, as well as millions of other Americans, to have them as close friends.
I would love for Canada and the United States to have a closer, friendly relationship with one another, and to stand together against terrorism. Canada is an awesome country.

The second largest country in the world, which is unfortunately highly steryotyped. We do't walk around wearing SARS masks and saying 'eh' all the time, or any of those other idiotic stereotypes posted! We've got a very diverse population including Sri Lankans, Macedonians, Bulgarians, Ethiopians, Guyanese, Jamacians, Italians, Indians, Argentenians, Vietnamese, Laotian, and many more! We don't all live in igloos, and don't all hate Americans. Hell, I've got an aunt in Chicago! gawd, why cant all people get along?!
