I don't understand this mentality. We have done nothing to deserve this treatment.

I have a hunch that it's due to certain Americans jealous of our standard of living, healthcare and safety.

I've never heard an American being "condescending" about Canada.... I honestly don't think they give Canada very much thought. We aren't a topic that comes up often in Americans' conversation.

I will say that sometimes Canadians can be oddly insecure. Sometimes Canadians are a little too keen to compare us against other countries worldwide, and to come up with unfair conclusions. We have unique qualities. We should give ourselves more credit for those.

Certain Americans put down Canada to fight back against the Canadians that express their superiority compared to the U.S.

Those Canadians probably express their superiority compared to the U.S to fight back against the Americans who claim we are the best in the world.

Its a never ending childish bashing fest. people love to engage in these arguments even though they never get anywhere or accomplish anything.

It's a big brother / little brother type thing. As is always the case when the little brother starts to surpass the big brother in certain ways, there is a backlash.

You guys have got to get with the program here.

We have a repetitive troll that is going for some kind of record.

He/she purposely posts with a controversial style castigating one or the other of our two countries hoping to elicit an immediate response. Should those responses not satisfy his OCD required bellicosity desire he will ratchet it up until eventually, around post number 6 or so, getting banned.

We do make it very easy for him to get us going, wouldn't you agree Optimus?

If anyone just felt the earth move it was due to me agreeing with Invince on this.

I agree with what Vince said. I also agree with Bru that the OP is the repeat offender Canada troll again, back for the 4th time this week with a new name each time (who, btw, happens to be an American in NY posing as a Canadian).

Trudeau and Mulcair have nothing good to say about Canada, so it's not surprising that no one else does either.

So that was what that was.
