The term peace is not achieved through fighting but through actual peace. Despite the fact that Canada's military is constantly insulted by our Southern neighbours, some still complain that we don't help them out. A country where "God Bless Canada" is not proclaimed every five minutes because we are aware that not everybody follows one belief.
And the boys are still hot without the beer.
- 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
- 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.
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....)
My name is Alex.
And I - AM - CANADIAN!
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!!!
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: 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.
