We Are More

by Shane Koyczan

PART 2

and yes
we are the home of the Rocket and the Great One
who inspired little number nines
and little number ninety-nines
but we're more than just hockey and fishing lines
off of the rocky coast of the Maritimes
and some say what defines us
is something as simple as please and thank you
and as for you're welcome
well we say that too
but we are more
than genteel or civilized
we are an idea in the process
of being realized
we are young
we are cultures strung together
then woven into a tapestry
and the design
is what makes us more
than the sum total of our history
we are an experiment going right for a change
with influences that range from a to zed
and yes we say zed instead of zee
This was recited at the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. 16 days, 14 gold, 7 silver, 5 bronze, 2 Olympic records broken, 1 proud country! Go Canada!

Sort of like the American attic. It's above us, we forget that it's there and when we do go up we look around and say... "hey that's a lot of cool shit."
Canada is where Santa Claus lives?

A country like any other, only difference is that citizens are much more arrogant, beer that taste like most of it's water, free healthcare my ass (you pay for other peoples from taxes),getting insurance, driver licenses tries to bleed you out with every cent, lots of people with no job because they rather take money from the government=more potheads, same amount of crime, watches jersey shore like anybody else, same amount of corruption cept it's legal, inexperienced doctors, cold as fucking hell, not as multicultural as people say, done nothing to actually keep the peace, obsesed with hockey even thought 3/4th of the world doesn't even play it(they had a riot over a GAME, and they called americans dumb, amazing!). Military side: shitty military force, they called a machine the chink machine today because chinese people did that station before the machine in bc. Alberta bitch threaten to have me deported because she thought i was hitting on her even though i'm a citizen. cops handcuffed my dad because he was fishing in a no fishing zone(not even that the cop was constantly swearing at him in front of my younger sibling, he actually had to say "officer we are both civilized people can you not swear in front of my kids," and what did the cop say..."well aren't you a criminal?"During the fight between america and the japanese they sent japanese-canadian citizen to concentration camps in stead of helping out in the war. And shall i go on?
Canadian:OH CANADA HAS FREE HEALTH CARE, UH LESS CRIME AND UH UH LESS RACIST PEOPLE, YEAH THAT'S IT

American:hmm I don't think so it's the same as everywhere else your overreacting I've been there before.

Canadian: UUUHHH AMERICA HAS WAR ALL THE TIME AND STUFF AND CRIME IS SUPPER BAD!!!!!

American:Well have you actually been there before.

Canadian:UHH NO.....BUT I BET IT'LL BE LIKE WHAT I SAID!!!!

A region unknown to the world. A place where the American government stores years of top secret information and create lies like Canada is real. They want to keep America under control and away from communist leaders. Everyone who "lives" in Canada are really traitorous Americans who have been brain washed into think that they are a nation above the almighty USA. If you ever see a Canadian do not panic. Stop whatever you are doing and burn their maple syrup supply. The smell of this frightens them away and gives you enough time to smack them with a silver plate of freedom and call upon the American eagle to spirit you away to safety. Canadians to avoid: Faith Mackey
SpongeBob: hey Patrick what am i
