Huh? why is the poll closed? I didn't do that! Well I made a new one, but I lost the previous results.

I don't really know anything about Canada. Is it true that overall, people are more polite there than in the U.S.? Also, are there many French people, or do they all live in Quebec?

Well, I consider Canada to be very similar to the U.S.. The only time that I remember going to the US is for one day in Maine. To me, people seemed more friendly there. It might be that way only because people are not so friendly in Quebec. I have lived in Quebec for the most of my life, and now am in Ontario. So no, I don't think they are. Some people are more friendly than others, same all over the world. French? I speak French, but there is some francophones scattered throughout Canada.

Nope, don't know much about Canada. Although I was doing some research online and learned about that gigantic mall in Alberta, the West Edmonton Mall, it sounds awesome

EDIT: I think how friendly people are in areas depends on the population of the area, I mean, almost EVERY one of my problems are caused by other people, so it would make sense people are irritable in urban places :/

Yeah, exactly. I think that the West Edmonton Mall is the biggest mall in the world. The strongest man on earth was from Canada, too. Hockey is very, very big here.

I have been to Vancouver, B.C. a couple of times (actually spent a week there). It was very nice and clean, and the nice people tolerated my American (Washington State) accent. Not a bad experience.

It bothers me though, that people don't talk much about Canada. They almost think about it as if it were a part of the US. Canada seems just as special to me as china or the UK.

BTW cute smiley Skinnymon. you must like Canada quite a bit!

Part of that reason GVM would have something to do with how close our two countries are. Canada and the US share both the worlds longest border with each other AND the worlds longest undefended border. People can pass freely between the US and Canada with little trouble (though it has probably gotten harder since the whole 9/11 thing). We are also each others own largest trading partners. The US and Canada have a lot of history with each other. Another issue (at least I always thought it was) is that comparatively, the US has done more in 200 years than Canada, or at least made a whole lot more noise while doing it. I will admit that I know next to nothing about Canada's history. Off the top of my head I could name maybe three of your provinces, or whatever they are. I blame that on American school systems though, they are trying to cram 200 years of American history and thousands of years of world history into a few years of high school. There is only so much you can teach.

That reminds me, the pilgrims were very cruel, greedy people. I heard that from the book: Lies My Teacher Told Me. Very interesting book. Anyway, some pilgrims even robbed graves, they say, and stole from the native's crops ! American history seems to proclaim USA as a very great, generous nation.

What we did to the natives is no big secret anymore, and is widely taught in schools now. *reads Wikipedia* Canada didn't do so well with the natives either, so

-> French and Indian war

hmm

also...

The U.S.... and most western nations for that matter... have a very bad habit of grabbing all the land around them until theres no more free space. At least canada, as far as I know, didn't go screwing over nations in central and south America.

I think Spain has done the worst when it comes to screwing over Central America and South America.

I wasn't trying to blame just USA. Canada did pretty bad too.
