    Maybe a little jealous of us. Sorry, I tend to think that of all non-Americans who take jabs at the way things are done in America while in almost the same breath wanting us the know their country is on par with America. I've encountered this a lot online in interactions with people outside of America.

    Canadian beer is superior to most American swill. As far as the brands that produce a lot, anyway.

    We like the Rim Rock in Banff. We were there last year with a beautiful view. It was cold and snowing and from our room we watched deer and later elk. In fact we other than coffee we made in the room we totally missed breakfast. We spend so much time sitting and looking at the mountains and the snow and the wild life morning just slipped by. My wife would live in Banff beginning tomorrow if she had the chance.

    Lake Louise is something else. We've been there several times but have never stayed there. We keep saying we will but we haven't yet.

    If you ever get a chance, stay at the Chateau Lake Louise. It's pricey, but it's spectacular. And I'd also highly recommend Jasper and a stay at the Jasper Lake Lodge. Both hotels are like stepping back in time. Fabulous!

    You ran to links because you can not name a single country in the world that would not run to America for help if they were invaded. Even I can name one, Iran. I mean a country that currently enjoys freedom though.

    America mass produced beer is swill but the market is rapidly expanding to micro brews that have great beer. Canadians come here to stock up on Coors.

    I literally just showed you dozens of countries fighting off invasions on their own. Would you like me to list them one by one here too or can you not click a link?

    Canadians are measurably less murderous, longer lived, and happier versions of Americans as a group.
