I like all those except 11. Canada wasn't even a country in 1812. I get so annoyed when Canadians say to me "We burned your White House in 1812!!!!" LOL its like, uh, no it was the Red Coats (even if people living here did it, "here" wasn't Canada as it is now), and there weren't any CANADIANS with their own country in 1812, so how did you go about that again? LOL

Cool list. !!

I'm a pround Canadian, and I don't really like lists like that. I already feel great being Canadian, I don't need encouragement.

And Caimen13, most of that list IS true. Go pick up your history textbook. You don't seem to know enough about either country to actually form an educated opinion.

Rachel S. yeah your dollar is better for now, but the way it's been droppin lately it may not stay that way for long.

And it hasn't always been like that, the Canadian dollar has actually been higher than the American before.

Wow go figure americans even have to make comments on our day of patriotism. If it is in good fun no problem. Just say congrads on your day of celebration and maybe have a laugh at some of the things on the list that are ancient history. Take care and enjoy your fourth of July! Tim B.

Oh ya and CANADA KICKS A_S_S !!!!!!!!
