    Fact, guns are easier to purchase than the US.

    More Canadians hunt than any other developed nation.

    And we have oil....
    more gun owners?.... surely you mean as a percentage of population?

    I mean, going by raw numbers, we have far more gun owners than Canada has people.

    Really?

    You think we put Canadian flags on OUR luggage from fear of being hijacked?

    I suggest you might want to spend more than three days in a place to make such a judgement on as diverse a country as Canada...we are not even a nation, we are a collection of cultures.

    From some 30 years of international travel it has been my experience that as many American sew Maple Leaf's onto their backpacks, because they fear attacks. I have a Maple Leaf on my carry on, which assures me I never get searched or harassed.

    And you leave out one fact which should be obvious to "patriotic Americans", maybe we're just proud of our country, one that has never seen a race riot......

    Yes, of course.

    The US has more guns per individual with all the collectors etc.

    But a greater % of households have guns than in the US, almost exclusively for sport.

    Ironically, we have only begun to arm our border guards and security on Parliament Hill. I think we don't like seeing guns.

    Lol that's the most hilarious thing I've heard all day. I've never heard of any American putting any flag on their luggage, let alone another nation's flag. Although as a soldier, I proudly wore my flag on my uniform when being on a plane :-)

    Canadians live in the GREAT white north, thus they are GREAT people.

    Igloos are surprisingly warm. But maybe you would want to start with this first

    As to seal meat it is a little bit similar to liver (just a little bit), which is good because I like liver.

    Spanish and French aren't that far apart you could always just fake it, when in doubt use Japanese and put a French accent on it, people will just think you're an Acadian
