For people who don't know the National Anthem of Canada

(English)

O Canada, Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The True North strong and free
From far and wide O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

(French)
O Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux.
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix.
Ton histoire est une épopée,
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
BTW Canadians don't sound ANYTHING like the british (accents I mean) lots of people think canadians sound british, I'm canadian and I don't think we sound british but we don't exactly the same as americans either and some of us do say 'eh' and 'meh' alot but everyone else says 'meh' don't they? And we do NOT live in igloos if we did we'd be homeless in the summer cuz they'd melt cuz it gets up to 30C (about 60F I think) and Mounties or RCMP Officers only wear their red uniforms for special occaisions (sp?) like Remeberence Day (I think it's Veterans Day in the US) and if you come to Canada to see a polar bear you'd have to go up to Nunavut, The North West Teritories or (maybe) the Yukon and French Canadians have a different accent from people in France and Simple Plan are from Montreal YAY!!! Their a good band eh? And Canadians spell some words with 'u' like: Colour, Favourite, etc. and a 'Double Double' is a coffee of any size with 2-cream and 2-sugar. The word is usally used at Tim Hortens (A Cafe you can also by sandwichs, soup and dounuts) and in Canada it's only cold in the winter (not all year-round) and the highest the snow has been in my life time (in the prov. I live in) was 86cm (about 3 feet) And O Canada (The Canadian Anthem) does NOT go to the tune of O Christmas Tree it has it's own tune (maybe some day I'll play it on my flute and record then upload it... or you could google Canadian National Anthem) and the coldest winter I remeber was the winter of 05-06 and it got down to -50C!! (-50F I think... Fernehiet(sp?) is confusing) but usally in late october it starts snowing and then it stops until late november and then in the middle of december it gets to -30C (-20F) and then by christmas it warms up a little and then in january it's back to -30C (-20F) then spring comes along and 'Poutine' was invented by the french canadians and it's frys, gravy and mozzerella cheese, it's good. I think I'm done... now you know some stuff about Canadians... I should go to America some day it sounds interesting.
