Because Canadian girls are uglier?

NO NO NO... I am only joking. The setup was just to easy.

Carry on.

Amazing link, answers your question. It shows that most US states have a higher teen birth rate among whites than the total Canadian teen birth rate of 16/1000 girls 15-19, so it's not purely because of America's differing demographic composition.

Products - Data Briefs - Number 46 - October 2010

Canada doesn't keep statistics based on race, but here's a report on the issue with some data that's a bit old, but still good enough to get a clearer picture, that compares the situation with the US and talks directly about this issue of the differences between the countries. It tends to talk about the pregnancy rate as opposed to the birth rate so as not to bias through the differing levels of abortion.

the article highlights the race card, but of course there's more than just that
I lol'd at one of the comments:

This story is just leftist, marxist bias from the LIBERAL MEDIA. Teenagers from good conservative families donít have the slightest interest in sex until after theyíre married, and even then, itís only within the limited bounds that God intended for holy matrimony: lights off, missionary position, taking as little time as possible so the couple wonít succumb to the Satanic temptations of female pleasure.
