Too bad. I could have a lot of fun with Rick Mercer. He might not consider it fun.

I don't know if I or someone else has said this before, but all of the people who do those "dummy-on-the-street" ambush type of TV shows admit that lots of people give smart or at least not-so-dumb answers.


But they don't use these on the show(s) obviously.

I bet Rick would admit he's encountered some, when least expected, who completely shattered any and all preconceptions he's had.

I sure have.

The less that people from the US know about their neighbours to the North, the better. Imagine if the country to the South realized that up North is where the climate is perfect, the air is clean, the mountains are enormous, life is beautiful, and everyone has both a summer and winter wardrobe! Canada would have a second reason to build a wall.

Are you talking about Canada in the sense of Devon Island in Nunavut?

Does this ever bother Canadians?
Since most Americans know very little about anything, we don't take it personally that they know very little about us. While travelling around the USA for 5 years I often asked people I encountered, what are all of the states that border your state? Less than 10% knew the correct answer. So, when you know nothing about your immediate neighbour, how could you be expected to know anything about foreigners?

Americans blah blah blah. Where I live in Asia, the Canucks are famous amongst the expat community for their cultural naiveté. And they're the ones who made it out of Canada!

you are delusional. Yes, people who prefer four seasons probably like to have winters, winters in the sense of how Vancouver or NYC feels in January. (yes, Vancouver winter is real winter, don't kid ourselves). But nobody likes Canadians winter, which is the fifth season. To call it simply winter is a misnomer.


Many probably do like to have a winter wardrobe, but hardly anyone enjoys wearing a Canada Goose with heavy scarf and globes in April, not to mention incurring multiple accidents on the highways due to a snowstorm, in APRIL, when the rest of the world is basking under 20C sun.
