I would have expected things like this to happen for example in your neighboring country, but never in Canada.

Well, you have frequently demonstrated before that you have some rather strange expectations and imaginings about Canada, as well as about our neighbours. I guess this expectation of yours should come as no surprise.

Please don't make jokes about our respective countries' tragedies, it tends to make you sound like a ghoul who delights in other countries' misfortunes.

It all just seems so unCanadian to me, an unsafe ferry terminal because of the road on a steep hill leading to it, vehicles jumping 50 feet through the air over water at the very moment the ferry takes off hitting it just where an intentional jumper would attempt to land.

Why would it be unCanadian?

You can find all kinds of people anywhere.

Your posts are interspersed with the intended suggestion this was a deliberate act on the part of the driver. Once you are proven wrong in that assumption, why continue to belabour the point of "not like Canada".

We will however make every effort to accede to your impression of Canada being a bland, safe, featureless landscape where nothing of an accidental nature ever occurs.

We're getting right on that as we speak and will let you know when it's safe to visit without fear of accidents caused by landscape features, wild animals wandering onto the highway, or the errant seagull stealing your ice cream and pooping on your Tilly hat.

Why did you use the plural form here? Your assessment of the safety of this ferry terminal has sample size issues.
