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

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.

I like how we leave out Mexico despite them being the the only other country to share NA with us.  :D

@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.

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.

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.

*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.

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