Ive never heard Detroit referred to as diverse to be honest.

Ketchup chips are very good, it's like BBQ, but not as spicy.

They dont have the gun violence, so it probably is safer to live there compared to America.

Yes, Canada is the country where a guy riding on a bus attacked another guy and cut off his head -- in front of the other horrified bus passengers.

To answer the Thread question NO. A Bizarro place is like the same place turned backwards or with a weird flip. But the U.S. is so much bigger than Canada population wise the two can't even be compared. There are more Black people in America than there are people period in Canada (or close to the same). California has about the same number of people as Canada. If you mean by bizarro same land size but 10Xs as many people then yeah. Who knows what Canada would be like with this many people. Likely not much different than us.

It would be far more appropriate to ask "Is Australia a bizarro Canada?"

crazy people are everywhere. Canada doesn't have social problems to the same extent as the US, and thus doesn't have violence to the same extent.

i'll counter with:

homeless women kidnapped off the street by drug dealers for not paying for her drugs, and burned alive (happened in SF a couple years ago)...or how about the drug and gang warfare in the US that claims thousands of lives yearly? Random crazy committing random violence--which happens everywhere...or drug dealers premeditating a brutal sadistic murder which is considered business as usual? A country that has subcultures which support constant acts like the latter strikes me as a more violent place.

That's why Canada will always lose when compared to the holy kingdom of america. Those bag-milk-drinking heathens.

The US and Canada are culturally similar, nobody can deny they are BY FAR our closest cousin, i think the differences are mostly in our founding and our outlook. the basic things like accent (aside of course from Quebec) and culture and music and food is pretty much the same.
