    Canada is the country that Canada wishes it was.  There are some great things about Canada but there are also some less than great things lurking behind the shiny image that we like to project.  There are good and bad things everywhere.  The US and Canada can learn from each other.

    I've found that those kind of arguments get you nowhere, and I just don't respond or I'll say something like "yeah, we're far from perfect"
