Location: America's cold boring cousin up north.
Stereotypes: Almost every presumption about Canada is wrong. The speech impediment everyone points out is only on the east side. Most of the weed smokers are on the west coast. We have every stereotype you have too. Thugs, drug dealers, sluts, nerds, jocks, punks... and ya'll in America have some funny accents too!
Vacation advice: Spend a month in Canada during summer and you'll adore it but make sure to leave before it starts getting cold because we hate listening to foreigners from all the countries to the south of us bitching because it's cold. Canadians themselves bitch about the numbing in their extremities enough to make up for any bitching you don't do.
Canada isn't any smarter or stupider than America.
I apologize on behalf of everyone in Canada with taste. We hate Beiber too so don't hold his prepubescent failure of a gayass voice against us.
I can say from personal experience that I'm from Canada and nobody can tell. I've been to America and have received no strange looks or mentions of seeming Canadian. I've been vidchatting a group of people in New Jersey for several years and they had no idea I was Canadian until I started bitching about something not being available in Canada.

The largest French popupulation in the world not to surrender to the Germans.
"I met this really cool girl. She's a native speaker of French."
"And since you have German blood, her orgasm must come in two seconds?"
"No, she's French Canadian."
"Oh, French Canadian? Nevermind then."

One of the 112 countries that President George Bush cannot locate on a map of the world - even if the map is labelled. They only teach shooting and spitting in Texas schools. Bush failed both...always hitting his foot, again with both. Must have been the coke.
"Err, I dunno, is it Canada? The Kingdom of Spain? what the hell do you mean it isn't a Kingdom? East Germany? What wall? Who tore it down? Let's nuke'em ! " - George Bush Jr.

country that busted its' ass to raise troops in both world wars, supply universal health care, and somehow remain statistically the safest country on Earth to live in.
Canada is a great country and I plan on moving there as soon as I can.

1. The best country in the world. 2. A very cold place located mostly above the 49th parallel. 3. Also known as the birthplace of professional hockey, maple leaf flag, Molson beer and the "I am Canadian" rant as well as the Mackenzie bros. 4. A country with more than 2.5 times as much land and with 1/10th the population of the US, making it that much nicer.
Oh, Man, god bless Canada, eh? What a beautiful place we live in.

The best friend of the United States, along with the UK and Australia. Its people are generally much more calm, rational and reasonable than their counterparts to the south. Its soldiers fought bravely and in countless cases died with honor side by side with British and American troops in the trenches of the Great War, on the beaches of Normandy, and in the mountains of Korea. Has a history and culture similar to our own, but generally less obsessed with violence and killing. Tends to be more liberal politically, never having had slavery or segragation, and less puritanical when dealing with alcohol and marijuana. Has a large French-speaking population, which, to their credit, has not yet surrendered to Germany in any war. As a nation, tends to be fairly honest and trustworthy, as evidenced by its stable currency and respectable diplomatic standing in the world. To the best of my knowledge, no Canadian citizens or interests have ever been explicitly targeted by international terrorists, and no Canadian army has ever invaded another country unprovoked.
Because of their usually sunny disposition, especially when compared with citizens of the US, Canadians are often seen as naive, gullible and/or not very pugnacious. Any student of history will find ample evidence to refute this stereotype.
Capital: Ottawa
Pop.: 33.1 million (2006)
Independence: July 1st, 1867 and December 11th, 1931 (there is a logical explanation for this)
GDP: $1.08 trillion (11th largest in the world)
Flag: Three vertical bands (red, white, red) with maple leaf centered in white band. Not very offensive, rarely burned by Muslims.
I'd rather have Canada as my neighbor than any other country in the world.

A large North American nation that should not hate the United States, and in turn, the United States should not hate Canada. Our two countries are supposed to be Allies; War of 1812 history be damned. They have fought on our side. For example, they joined the fray during the Korean War (1950-1953)
Why can't the US and Canada just get along? We are brothers, and we should act like we are brothers, too.
