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!

Large country occupying the northern portion of North America.
The name Canada came from a mis-translation by early explorers of a native word meaning Village.
Large in size but sparsely populated, the country was an integral ally player in WW2, however most of it's forces were decomissioned when hostilities ceased. Canada contributed many very skilled troops and pilots for the european campaign, and were pivotal in the European beach landings.
Economically, Canada contibutes vast amounts of raw resources not least of which are energy products. Northern Alberta has vast oilsands deposits that may contain as much oil as the middle east, and are mostly untapped, meaning there will still be lots of oil, albeit fairly expensive, long after the wells run dry in Saudi Aribia.
Canada has some of the largest unspoiled forrests left in the world.
Canada's primary trading partner is the USA, which shares the longest ungaurded border (figuratively speaking)in the world.
To address all the flamers out there, Canadians and Americans for the most part like each other, except for an embarassingly high number of obnoxious loudmouths on either side of the border.
Explorer: What is this place?
Native: Kanta.
Explorer: Canada, that's what this country is called.
Guide: I think he means the village.
Explorer: Nope, pretty sure he means the country. This place is called Canada.

Canada...
Considerd the United States lesser counter part, this being untrue we add many things to the world and try to do our part.I don't really understand why the heck someone would compare or make fun of us we are all equal. It is true that Americans have been to know a little less about us than we know about them, but thats okay. I love this country and the things it stands for, it is a beautiful place with just as many wonderful people as every other place.
But weather you are naturally Canadian or some one visting us, I urge you to show your love to this great country..."United we stand divided we fall"...(The Americans couldn't have said it better)
So from Halifax to Victoria, we should all proud to be...
Canadian
"Canada it the hot spot!"
