Thanks Canada, you folks have a place with lots of natural beauty to call home and lots of great musicians. You make a good disguise while travelling. I'm thankful for the Canadarm which was used on the shuttle while it was operational. I sometimes like to joke about you guys saying eh and calling soda pop but it's all in good humor. I know some people here who think that Toronto is a state and I'm sure you like to laugh at that. In addition to that you have a handsome and studly leader who is a good boxer and who i wish we had in the white house.

Don't some Americans call it pop too? We call them soft drinks where I'm from, I never could get used to pop after moving.

I have always admired Canada for staying out of the Viet Nam debacle. If I knew then what I know now I might jumped the border instead of serving.

Canada is a great country, and it is lucky to have such a great neighbour (spelling fully intentional). I agree with JBG in his OP when he suggests that we both enjoy peace and prosperity due to our good relations.

Thank you, JBG. You guys really are great, in this Canadian's opinion.

How could I not rep this post, in spite of spelling error?

And you gave Harper a government for 9.5 years so don't act like everyone up there is some perfect angel too........

Yes plenty do, pop is the preferred term here in Pittsburgh and other areas through the Great Lakes, Northwest, and Northern Great Plains. I've heard people claim saying pop is a way to differentiate Americans from Canadians. Uh no not at all, it just shows how many areas of the U.S. you've never been to.

Stephen Harper is no Donald Trump. Harper did not ever urge his supporters to send demonstrators "out in a stretcher." He never suggested that he would not accept the results of the 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011 or 2015 elections. He never called an opponent a "fat pig" or "loser."

As you pointed out Trump had little chance of winning the election before last night's debate and even less now.
