there's tons of bullshit rumors about canada that fly around the states. my favorite has to be the mythical Marlboro w/ weed blend.

One thing I about Canada that always bugged me is how Canadians are all so friendly, except when they get on the topic of themselves. Then they magically transform into these nationalistic pricks that make Americans look tame. The reason being that the U.S. kind of nationalism is simply naive idealism, thinking ourselves to be a shining example to the rest of the world. Canadian nationalism stems from a century-old national identity crisis, Canadian historians often cite that the foundation of Canadian identity is being "not-american".

Dsummer, you're preaching at the choir. Canadian healthcare is a superior _system_ operating with inferior _resources_. Canada has under 200 MRI scanners, the U.S. has well over 10,000. But everyone who needs an MRI in Canada gets one. People in the States who have health insurance, have a doctor who feels giving you an MRI is worth more than getting a kickback from the insurance company for keeping costs down, and can afford the co-pay get scanned. As for politics, Canadian politicians do stupid stuff all the time. They just don't receive the same type of international press attention.
