i live in canada now but prior to that i grew up in the philippines. to tell you the truth i had no idea about anything about canada... seriously.. i know more of solomon islands, fiji, trinidad and tobago than canada.

now most people would say canada is a peaceful place. nope but its a little bit better than the US. i live in canada now for 8 years and its about the same violence, drugs, etc. as the US. The only reason canada seemed peaceful is that US eclipses canada in every news making anything here uninteresting and stale. proof? ask any canadian who their prime minister is and 70% of the time they wont know because the PM's name doesnt appear in any media more than Obama's does... so if u dont hear bad news about canada it doesnt mean everything is well and peaceful..

but yeah the weather does keep people off the streets..

Not sure who you're talking to, but I have never chatted to a person who can't name off at least the last three Prime Ministers.

As for the violence, drugs and such, as a whole Canada has fairly low levels of both of these, if you are trying to trash a country for problems that are occurring in EVERY world state you may need to find something that Canada is actually bad at. For example, the post-secondary enrolment rates in Canada are one of the lowest of any developed nation

Canadian's are generally seen as kind of backward, living in ice, and way too nice and polite for their own good.... overall I can live with this.

The OP is not a Canadian. He posted this in response to comments on the 'What do you think of Americans' Thread that suggested Canadians felt under-appreciated.

It's telling that the vast majority of these posts come from other canadians. Seems no one else give a @#$#$ which is to be expected. After all How much do you know about South Osettia?

If you are going to address this opinion to the thread that's fine, but if you are speaking to me please make some fucking sense cause it sounds like you are making next to none.

The poster above wants to try the doughnut franchise that's on every compass point of every street corner in Canada. I think Tim's spikes their coffee with crack I don't understand their populararity

Canada is home. And I have no ill will towards any other countries. I mean, every family in Canada was at one time an immigrant.

If it helps most of North America is giving in to being conditioned & lazy if that helps, making us more equal than before.

Toronto has played more cities for Hollywood than... well. lots of cities. For Example in the last iteration of The Hulk, the street he and the Abomination were tearing up was Toronto's Main Drag. you can see an Iconic Nudie bar and Record Store in the bacground as thrown vehicles fly past.

As long ago as the 80's Toronto has been Anyplace USA in Movies. For example when Johnny 5 (Short Circuit 2) takes his oath of American Citizenship he does it with Toronto's unique circle foot printed cluster of buildings that is the current City Hall in the background.

I can't go for a walk without stumbling onto the set of an upcoming movie or ongoing TV show.

That's just one thing, about one City in Canada. As usual, thanks for noticing.

At least you didn't refer to the Maple Leaf as a Campbell's soup label.

I live in Canada and what I can tell you is a lot of good rock music comes from here and its also a lot more aware of a variety of different cultures than America if that makes sense
