    I’m a U.S. citizen living in Canada. About the loonie and the toonie. I HATE them. I miss the days of paying with a ten and getting actual paper money back. I hate all the coins. They drive me crazy! The U.S. has dollar coins, but no one uses them because they SUCK.

      Not an ounce of logic in your hatred though.

      Canada is so great that Quebec will be its own country in within a few decades. Good luck losing the best part of your country. I guess you’ll still have the tar sands of Alberta.

        Whoever wants Quebec can take them and have them, honestly should have just paved it over years ago for a giant parking lot. I’ve never been anywhere (including other countries like the US, UK and France) where narcissism was a mandatory requirement for living there like it is in Quebec…I have family that are on the east coast and they wouldn’t even go to Quebec when I offered free travel and accommodations if they joined myself and a friend, that should have been all the hint I needed. Everyone I came across was rude short of the Hotel staff, my friend doesn’t speak french which is why I went with her and on more than one occasion we were both declined service because she was being “rude” for not speaking french and I was being just as “rude” for “lowering myself by being seen with her”…Quebec can shove a stick somewhere cause they need to learn some manners and get their over inflated ego a check.

          I dont know where the heck you went in Quebec to have been so unlucky. Ive been in Quebec since birth (so 24 years), live my life in English and can count the amount of times people have given me trouble on one hand (the government is another story, however).

    The fact is in every year in and year out almost one fifth of the Canadians are entering into the light vehicle market and annually over 4 million light vehicles change hands, which is a staggering figure. In the year 2010, 2.9 million Canadians purchased some sort of used vehicle while in the same year only 1.557 new vehicles were sold in the same market.

    One of your facts is wrong, on number 9 you say that the Uk has gotten rid of pennies, as a British citizen i can categorically say that this is not true, in fact the UK actually redesigned the penny barely 4 years ago.

    No. 11. Healthcare. It’s not top-notch as that of the US, but it is adequate and covers everyone. Nobody goes bankrupt paying for medical expenses.
    But despite the 11 good reasons, most Canadian would move to the US if given the opportunity.

      I don’t know who you’ve been speaking to Jerry but very few Canadians would move to the US if given the opportunity. I’ve lived in the most populous region of Canada for my entire 50 years and I can guarantee you are mistaken. Most people I know agree, “It’s a nice place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there”.

        Steve, by saying the most populous region I assume you mean Toronto or perhaps southern Ontario. Here’s a news flash: The rest of Canada looks at Toronto as the New York City of Canada – The people there think the whole world revolves around them. Besides Toronto is the most American acting city in Canada. If my memory serves me well I do remember talk 15 or so years ago about Toronto trying to get a NFL team if the CFL collaped. So much for #7.

        Besides, don’t take the article too serious. As a Canadian who has lived in the US of A the past dozen years, I’d say we have far more in common than not. But, to tell you the truth, I do miss Hockey night in Canada. Take care eh!

          We had it yes. But we could not exploit it because of the high cost of making oil out of tar sand. It only became profitable because of the rise of oil price that followed the wars in the middle-east after the first gulf war of 1988. Some of those wars like Irak that were partly meant to maintain lower the oil price, only raise it.

    You forgot two things on the list: Going to jail for reading certain religious scriptures in public (considered a hate crime), and crazy high taxes on tobacco.

      Sigh – 23 American based teams. That’s who Americans would be supporting. Not the 7 Canadian teams. That’s who the Canadians would be supporting.

    Don Cherry is one of the reasons hockey stinks. The guy stains the TV show he does color commentary for. A hideous clown who should be buried under his 1,001 carnival dresses. He should start dabbing lipstick to his lips to make the cartoon complete.

    I lived in two of the 4 most populous cities in Canada, Calgary for 3 years and Montreal as my hometown. I have yet to meet someone who wants to become american and move over there. And the most american cities I Canada is not Toronto but Calgary and even they no what they have here. I won’t deny that America has done great things but there is a major lack of a social safety net in your country. Specialy compared to all other industrialized countries bar Russia and China. You guys are falling behind in education, infrastructure and healthcare and your happiness indicator is very low. We’ve had a nice thing going for some years now. You get first pick on prime natural resources and cheap electricity and we get the biggest guy around as our brother. Ya we all laugh at each other but in reality nobody wants change anything. Most Americans want to stay in America so they must be doing somethings right and most Canadians want to stay here so we must be doing something good.

    “Start by watching a CFL game or two, and check out a Grey Cup. The Grey Cup, both the game and the trophy itself, is awesome. It’s the oldest professional trophy in North America, and it’s been around.”

    Actually, the Grey Cup is not even the oldest professional trophy in Canada. The Stanley Cup has been in existence since 1893, pre-dating the NHL by a full 34 years.
