    "Did you fail history?"

    Did you? Canada IS the french and english colonies joining together.

    "but that isnt a good thing. "

    [sarcasm]Right, the rich people should get operations and medications first, and the poor people shouldn't get any.[/sarcasm]

    basketball was invented in springfield, massachusetts, america. i am pretty sure of that. do you have any proof that it was canada?

    Yes... Canada=Britain+France+Natives, all of whom kicked your *** after you invaded them
    america was primarily british (and african and indian, but that's another thread...). by saying this you are saying canada is not a sovereign country. (or at least it wasn't back then.)

    for no reason even though they were hopelessly outnumbered.
    we did try to invade canada once. we lost.
    And by the way, the Empires didn't give hardly any help to the Canadians becausee their resources were too taxed from all the fighting they had been doing with you and each other.
    i'm just going to avoid this minefield. yes, canada was under british control at the time. yes, we invaded canada, unsucessfully. yes, canada has done many great things. but look at the present.

    ">>Canada introduced peace-keeping to the world<< Again, something we could do without "

    Really, so when the armies came through rawanda cutting off the arms of all the women and children we should have done nothing and let the slaughter continue?

    "by saying this you are saying canada is not a sovereign country. (or at least it wasn't back then"

    We gained sovereignty a little bit at a time. At that time I believe canada did have elected government representation in the house of commons, but the senate was still controlled by britain. Instead of going to war with england, we just asked nicely and they gave us independance.

    "Quick name a country that had to be given the technology behind atomic bombs from the United States (hint it rhymes with Bcanada"

    Oh horrors!! Canada didn't devolop the technology to destroy the world as fast as you!!

    Anyway, our nuclear reactors are safer, and more efficient than yours.

    Okay, how about the six snipers from jtf-2 almost single handedly rescuing an entire company of the 101st airborne that was trapped by al-qaida and taliban guns and mortar?

    Actually we just got new money this year with no royals on it. But anyway, we have our own independant money from them, and we choose what to put on it, and we chose to put some of them on it, because that's our heritage.

    good to know. . .i haven't seen any of the new money yet...

    anyway...i've only been to BC once, and I was blown away. Some of the best fishing i've ever experienced, and the scenery wasn't bad either...

    one thing america could learn from Canada is how to take care of a river...

    True, but that would infringe upon our right to pollute everything.

    Anyhow, why are we bickering? Canada and the US are practically the same country.

    sometimes i can't tell whether its provocation or just normal arrogance and ignorance

    "the CIA did that, they pretended to be canadians"

    speaking of CIA and canadians, that reminds me of another thing america did to canada, kidnapped our citizens and experimented on them and tortured them with LSD and mind-control experiments for years... when it was exposed they didn't even want to pay compensation because they didn't want to look guilty.

    Once again it comes down to the fact that the world is overpopulated. Even Canada is becomming overpopulated in my opinion. Canada is nice because we have nearly all of the technology from the USA and other Western Eurpoean countries. I live in a huge city (Calgary) and it's new, and the air is still clean. It probably won't stay like that for too long however and unfortunately there are no earthquakes or volcano erruptions to whipe people out around here. Canada probably is one of the best places in the world to live, however for how long?
