Noun. The way Canada SHOULD logically be spelled, if its reisdents are to be referred to as "Canadians". If "Canada" is the correct nomenclature, why are its residents referred to as "Canadians" and not "Canadans"? And, if we are to appropriate this linguistic protocol and apply it across the board, then why don't we Americans call ourselves "AM-mo-RICK-ians"? Besides, "Canadia" just sounds better, and lives up to the peaceful, majestic, and Utopian persona that it has taken on in the eyes of us Amorickians ever since our country got taken over by blustering, right-wing Imperialists. C'mon, "Nation Soon to be Formerly Known as Canada". Make it official. We all know you want to!
"Had there been proper medical procedures to correct severe cataracts in 1545, French explorer Jacques Cartier may not have missed the "i" in "Canadia" while transcribing his travelogue entries for posterity, and the grievous cosmic imbalance which ensues to this day may have been completely averted."
