Most Canadians believe that Americans are friendlier, wealthier, smarter and less subject to taxation. In fact, Americans are victims of exponentially higher crime rates, less civilized social security, no visible health care and are being squeezed as brutally by multilateral corporate trade agreements as everyone else in the world. Americans tend to admire Canadian institutions, but worry about possible communistic origins. Americans who really admire Canadian institutions, values and lifestyles tend to emigrate to Canada and become almost the only Canadians who give a damn about protecting the country’s institutions, values and lifestyles.
