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!

I'm a proud American living in beautiful Canada. I have many family members that are Canadian and American. I think both countries are great in their own speical way.

Canada
- Has many great hockey players and teams also has a great WINTER olympic team
- Truly care about the environment(wonderful water, amazing forest, etc.)
- we have great beer and comedians
- Have great healthcare yet we still complain about it
- Focus more on education and health than military
- Very diverse and multi-cultural
- we speak English and French even though Quebec wants to be seperated from Canada

USA
- strong and powerful country due to military (i don't agree w/ them being in Iraq even though many brave soliders are risking their lives)
- sorry but i really don't like Bush and against his presidency
- has strong trading markets and businesses
- have a great SUMMER olympic team
- in many metropolis cities like LA, NYC, etc is very diverse and multi-cultural like Vancouver, Toronto, etc.
- have many popular pro-sports such as football, basketball, and baseball
- although we speak American; there are many languages spoken in the US

btw many Americans and many Canadians are very prejudice about each other. We both form North America yet we still diss each other countries and hardly look at the positive sides of the other country. Also we always talk sh!t about the other country, seriously, many Americans are not rude or dumb, and they do not all support Bush (many are against his ways)...and Canadians does not live in igloos, say "eh", and we don't insult you in the face but we do behind your back (sorry, that's not a diss but it's true).

Canada and US are both similar yet we still have many arguments. Can't we just all try our best to get along togehter happily.
I love living in Canada and I love being American.

A wonderful country that has produced some very, very hot women such as Elisha Cuthbert and Pamela Anderson. Also I spent two weeks there and only heard one "ey."
Damn, why are Canadians so fine, eh?

The second largest land mass, though perhaps, (to my eternal shame,) one of the least defended. Great food, great beer, great living, great fun. We have, like any society, our share of problems...but for the most part, we keep them at home.

Canada is a country represented by diversity, acceptance...and a universal hatred for our politicians. (Just ASK one of us about the GST...just ASK....)
We're bigger and we're on top, if that was prison you'd be OUR *****

A country bordering America with nice people, but it's fair share of not so nice ones, smart people and idiots, anorexic freaks and obese people, and all that normal jazz. Canada's just a country like anyone else, we don't live in igloos and have pet beavers, (although a beaver tail is a very popular dessert). We're not usually all that happy with our government either, America isn't the only country with that problem. We don't live in parkas and go skiing every day and unlike popular belief we DO have electricity up here. Parts of the USA are farther north than Toronto and Windsor, for example. So don't show up at the border wearing a snowsuit + skis in july. We have summer here too. We're normal people, and have our stereotypes, just like America may, or any other country.

My name is Alex.
And I - AM - CANADIAN!
Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader....
I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled....
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really really nice.

I have a Prime Minister, 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 backpack.
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

My name is Joe!!
And I am Canadian!!!
