Made it to the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs, but Chicago and Boston played for the Championship.

Got nothing against the Canadia, but Beiber almost cancels out all the good. Check out a report of what that clown just pulled in Japan:

Of course the US won't deport him because we're in a political phase of letting everyone and their mother into the country to destroy wages, create civil unrest and bring on the Orwellian/Socialist police state.

Have a nice weekend.

Ive never been to Canada.

However, if what I read is correct and my personal experience of Canada-ians is anything to go by, then the world wouldnt be too bad if it was full of Canadas.

For one thing, they/you seem to respect other peoples culture.

Canada does have by far the rudest government employees and flight attendants in the world. They work barely any hours for decent pay, get huge holidays and benefits and yet moan constantly about their soul-sucking jobs and universally act like you're wasting their time if you ask them to do anything for you, even if doing that thing is their job.

Not to mention horsepucky like the $300 it costs me to renew my passport abroad, which I'm sure largely goes towards some clerk's overblown salary. Screw you Canadian government employees!


Fuck Canada.

What a shithole of a country.

As a Michigander in close proximity to Canada I would like to thank our brethren to the north for exporting great hockey players, good beer, some good musicians, allowing us underage types to gamble and drink over in Windsor, and most importantly, Trailer Park Boys.

The only big downside is every year, one of us gets conned into buying a pack of 'Players' and finding out what crap smokes they are. Export As too. Face it, when it comes to a good smoke that is one of the things America still kicks butt at.

The Bad - Snidely Whiplash

I say we trade the Kardashians straight up for Justin Bieber and call it a fair trade agreement.

Yes, of course I got that from your post, a world "full of canadas" would exclude all other countries.

Canada has some good points to offer, and I have described some of them in this thread.

Three hundred dollars to renew a passport? I just renewed my American passport a short while ago. It cost me a little over a hundred dollars, and I felt like even that was excessive.

Watching "Trailer Park Boys" is so painful. I enjoy the show, but deep down inside, I cringe while watching it because I know that there are people who actually live like that. It's on Netflix, BTW.

As an Anglo-Quebecker, I still like Canada as well as Quebec. (But as long as most Canadians oppose Albertans)
