I was very proud of Canada when we said, "Iraq??? No thanks, we don't have anything to fight with them about".

This was a great, long overdue day.
Either that or, the way Australia reacted to both Port Arthur and Bali bombings.

When Canada won the gold medal in Hockey in 2010, on our own soil, in a dramatic last minute goal against the USA. When we legalized gay marriage. When we didn't act like a puppet state and maintained our trade and diplomatic relations with Cuba (unlike yesterday when Harper flew in the face of 56 years of national policy on Cuba and embarrassed our country internationally for no discernible ideological or policy reason other than trying to get US brownie points like a sell out).

Canada and the Iraq War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It has been reported that Canadian troops in the region numbered less than only three other participating countries

Well like most Americans, the proudest moment certainly occured recently when Bobby Cleveland reclaimed the World's Fastest Lawn Mower Title for the US of A and returned this (figurative) prestigious trophy to the land of the free and home of the brave...


The world's fastest lawnmower - YouTube

suck on that, rest of the world...USA! USA! USA!

May I suggest that you learn how to read. The link you provided talks about how Canada has been involved in the rebuilding of the country after it was blown to bits by the USA military. It also points out that Canada DID NOT participatate in the WAR!!!!
