  • "Canada" is just a watered down, more socialist version of America. It's culture consists of trying not to be America. Everyone likes Canada because it's inoffensive - like mild cheddar. Nobody loves it, but everyone can eat it. I'd rather be exotic brie or zesty blue cheese. Canada needs a good war to define itself. Until then, it's a nothing country and deep down most Canadians know it.
