Difference between US and Canada

The woman at customs in Montreal was hot, very hot. And friendly, too. Nothing says welcome to any country more that a hot blonde as your first encounter with the natives. The people overall, are friendly. i stayed at a B and B. The food they made was very good. Breakfast took a couple of hours, so much food and conversation. I was on vacation. And the people, Canadians at they B and B were Canadians also. They were refreshing. Not pretentious, not wounded, like so many others from around the world, they were fully functional. Not a victim at the table! Amazing! This is how life should be. Living life, not as a label, a color, a socio-economic class, a product of bad parenting; just real people. No apologies, no excuses. It is what it is. I need a vacation, back to Canada, soon!

I don't remember junkies but i know Duluth is sort of a depressing town, feels like the 90s up there.

But those junkies were probably from Canada.

Were you to Duluth before the closure of the infamous "Last Place on Earth" shop? Junkies used to line up for hours right in the center city of Duluth for synthetics until the feds raided them and closed them down for selling illegal substances.

Wendy's burgers taste good enough but have small chunks of ground up bone in them that are just big enough to break a tooth when you bite down on it. It's like biting down on a stone. I've never eaten at Harvey's so don't know what that's like but I'd prefer to eat a burger that has some soy fillers in it rather than pieces of bone that break my teeth.

What are the things you notice first/the most? Is the urban form much difference? On streetview Canadian cities look a bit more familiar than most American cities except San Diego.
Yes, you can feel a different vibe as soon as you cross. Canada, OZ, and the states are all different and the same. Similar culture in all since they're all western, english speaking, christian, former british colonies, u.s. influence. But their are small differences.

In Canada, prostitution's legal (at least partially). Canadians have universal healthcare and they're public sector jobs are well paid. Canada is a member of ICC. The u.s. has a lot more poverty/homelessness and a much higher prison population. When you cross into Canada, you feel freer as an american, but then again that's any country outside the states, hell even Mexico.
