    Re: Your perception of Canadians is?

    Living in SE Michigan, I have been to Canada at least fifty times in my life and have seen the nation from east to west coast. I happen to love the place and if America ever became a place to move from, Canada would be first on my list.

    That's the best you've got? I overestimated your abilities. You should try to form your thoughts with a little more discipline so that you could express in words what you actually mean to say.

    Re: Your perception of Canadians is?

    Canada is pretty impressive. It isn't loud and brash like its southern neighbor but Canada, IMHO, has come into its own, albeit quietly. I have sensed a palpable increase in Canadian pride over the years we have visited Canada, and justifiably so.

    As an American there is much to envy in Canada. I prefer Canadian media to US media. It has more class and is less crass. In fact, I listen to the CBC on XM radio everyday. Their cities are cleaner than US cities overall. I'm not going to run a list, but I do want to mention Canadian train travel. We love to travel by train. Canada Rail reminds me of some of the best European rail travel. Well done, Canada! It's fun. My god, imagine saying that about American rail travel. LOL!

    It seems that Canadians are more aware of who they are as a nation. Nothing is certain but change and Canada overall seems be comfortable now being Canada and not competing in every way with the US. As Americans we haven't noticed Canada's growing identity, but Canadians have certainly noticed it.

    You are actually dead on about a sense of Canada coming into it's own, an increased sense of quite pride. It has come out of the dreadful "who are we?" years where Quebec was leaving and the West wanted to; true to Canadian ethos, we simply ignored all that and went about doing what we're best at.

    Years ago it was unseemly to mention Canada's greatness in any way, Lester B. Pearson embarrassed us with that Nobel Peace prize.

    But that changed by the time the 2010 games rolled into Vancouver, and with typical humility the Prime Minister apologized for Canada winning all those gold medals.

    However, I strongly disagree about train travel. We have lost 60% of the passenger network in the last two decades, the ever wise VIA Rail rolls through the some of most impressive mountain landscape in the world....at 4 AM. We are left with a one our run from North Vancouver to the Whistler resorts, but there I have to admit the mountain/seascape is awe inspiring.

    I commend you, sir, on knowing your neighbor well....

    Which makes me want to heave...

    ...or leave.

    There is no puck, no physical contact and it isn't figure skating, so how can it be a sport? Typical Scots, you could invent a game of throwing mud at a wall and they would play it...

    Hurling rocks across ice? How does that even rate with a hockey stick in the ribs, or a lacrosse stick in the face?
