We all know that there is a distinct rivalry between the US and Canada, but sometimes people on both sides of the border forget how much the two countries mean to each other. The Canada-US relationship has got to be the closest relationship between two countries ever. Sure, we both may not agree on certain things at times, but when it comes down to it, we always have each other's backs, just like brothers. And we are brothers, after all, we are "children of a common mother". Think of the US as the older, rebellious sibling and Canada as the "mama's boy". History has shown that the two countries have always counted on each other when it mattered most. I just want to thank America for all the help they have no doubt given us over the years and as well apologize for burning down your White House in 1814 :P. Besides, what's a little bit of teasing between brothers? Come on folks, how do you really feel about your cross-border friends?

By the way, the video above was from NBC's coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympics, just want to thank Tom Brokaw for reminding me that not all Americans look down upon us (Ann Coulter). Just a correction though, the Canadian diplomat was working with the CIA not for the CIA.

"Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners. And necessity has made us allies. Those whom nature hath so joined together, let no man put asunder." - John F. Kennedy

*hugs from an American*  Just don't try to jump the boarder...or we'll have to shoot you.
 
EDIT:  It's border, not boarder.  :/

My opinion on Americans have been improving ever since Bush left the office... strange that I base my opinion on a president than American values and culture.

A lot of my relatives are in the States but I've never gotten to go down yet. Can't wait until I do though. I have relatives in Texas and New York, where to go first!!?

I like how we leave out Mexico despite them being the the only other country to share NA with us.  :D
 
EDIT:  @xyzygy:  NYC, the south is dangerous.

Don't forgot your foul-mouthed 2nd cousin, England.

@Hockeymask27: I must admit, it almost made me shed a tear.

I like Canada, America's sane little brother.  As we are the insane older brother, but we got each others back.

@KaosAngel:  As someone who lives in the South, I'm going to agree with you. Don't go south of the Mason-Dixon. It's not that the South is dangerous, it's just full of backwards-ass people.
 
Oh, and Canada is a hell of a country. Spent the summer of '04 in Halifax.

That's a good reason to love Canada, imo. Great band.
 
Canada  is my favorite country in the world.

@xyzygy: Please go to New York first. Texas and the southern states can have their charm, but they also can have their bigotry.
 
P.S. Not saying all Texans/southerners are ignorant hicks, just some. :)

We both know that's a lie...it's the majority.  >.>  If I went down to the south, I'd be watched and yelled at non-stop, and would be called a camel jockey, terrorist, jihadist, obama worshiper, etc..

As a Canadian I'm glad to have the most powerful army right below my country and as an ally : D

@KaosAngel:  No you wouldn't. There are lots of good people in the South.  Have you ever actually been?
#29 Posted by ParanoidFreak (1461 posts) -
@Laketown: 
Some of them don't want to be a part of Canada anyway, so it's all good.
 
Canada has some fine ladies too:
 Proof

Nice video. Never been to Canada but I hope that gets fixed soon :).

@KaosAngel:  Trust me, the South isn't as backwards as a lot of people think. There are lots of ignorant assholes, but ignorant assholes are prevalent all over the world.
#33 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

An interesting tidbit, although I can't find a definitive source; There are more bald eagles in Canada than in America and there are more beavers in America than Canada. But either way, these two animals remain a North American species.

Man panning shots of mountains always move me in ways I can't comprehend. It is beauty.  I love being Canadian because of the beautiful country. I haven't been to too much of America, but I hope to travel all across it on day, along with a second and more comprehensive trip of Canada.

Love. 
 
It's funny. There was actually a big controversy here last week in Nova Scotia. The Queen was supposed to visit us for our Tattoo, but there were concerns that she wouldn't be able to climb some stairs while she was here. Not sure where the stairs were, or why the hell a set of stairs were such a big deal... but she isn't coming anymore because of these stairs.

Oh yeah and a Tattoo isn't like an actual tattoo on your body... here this will explain it better  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Nova_Scotia_International_Tattoo

*Posting this from Midland,Texas* Google it :D
 
All I can say from experience traveling all over Texas is that there are ignorant people (Although not nearly as much as it's made out to be) but I'll be damned if they aren't the nicest ignorant people around.
 
Although the stereotype that 85% of people down south love football and beer more than anything in the world (aside from Jesus) is pretty fucking accurate.

That made me all emotional and junk. Even though Mr. Brokaw made a stab at my states economy.

Might want to elaborate on "Tattoo" before someone misinterprets that.

Hell no! That is Lights. She makes music that I'm not too into, but she's a real hot nerd. She met her boyfriend through WoW, he is one lucky man.

I've always loved Canada. I would move there if it wasn't for all the cool shit we Americans get.

You just did the same thing.  You made a generalization about an entire population based on the actions of a few people.

This. Not sure about the cool shit though, but yeah Canada's a great place even though I haven't been there since when I was a baby.
