    so that we current "stated" americans can become loyal to the british monarchy and speak real French? Not that I have anything against canadians, but no thank you.

    Actually the US States should become Canadian provinces. We'd get Canada's much saner gun control laws, much better healthcare system, much lower property taxes, and government funding for Jewish schools.

    A big chunk of Canadians don't want to join a country that is intolerant of non-English speakers.

    A big chunk of Canadians prefer the monarchy (which is why they founded the country to begin with - English Canada started with the refugees from the USA in the 18th century).

    Candians prefer socialized medicine. They don't favor a muscular foreign policy.

    Why would the US want a country where the "conservatives" are similar to Democrats, and the Liberals are way to the left of Obama.

    They had that idea once before to make Canada the U.S and even Mexico into a continental country... it didn't happen for a reason.

  8. charliehall: government funding for schools is only in Quebec (like Montreal). And Quebec is all for seperatism anyways.

    And why on earth would Canada want to become part of the U.S. anyways?

    CharlatanHall, if you think Canada is better, you are welcome to LEAVE whenever you wish. As for me, once we get rid of you socialists, the country can ONLY get better.

    This Is A Failed Attempt At The Longest Subtitle In The Yeshiva World Coffee Room. However, as the old adage goes, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again". im on my 5th or 6th, it does keep growing, i wonder if its still a failed attempt! But as they say "Try and fail, and try and fail but never fail to try again!"

    Please don't ruin Canada

    I think all the countries of the world should be one huge entity that way we can put up a united front when the aliens come to destroy us.

    Incorrigible; eccentric; somewhere between mean and average; sometimes only a bit over the top; arbitrarily engaged in cynicism.

    I'm voting Charlie to move to Canada. They have a shortage of doctors so I'm sure they would accept him.

    It's ok to criticize your country, but if you actually idolize other countries and want to be completely like them and part of them--why not just go?

    No way! first of all, that would NOT make us all one big happy country at all! And second, it would just end up being one huge America rather than Canada AND America so united...

    Makes smalltalk with the two most sandy ectoplasmic beings on Earth (not to mention the Man on the Moon).

    We should return to our sovereign England. The taynos that made sense in the 18th century have all been addressed. The queen can communicate with her subjects instantly, and we could have Parliamentry representation in real time via video conference or by hopping a plane. Put an end to the centuries long treason. Canada can too.

    Great argument for aliyah.

    Charlie is not an MD (he has a PhD). That being said he is one of the nicest and smartest people I have the privilege of calling a friend.

    Newsflash: Canadians are happy with the status quo of good friends with a distinct identity. And we have no interest in your lacklustre, flavourless beer.

    Utah - "bad enough they are next to us?" - Hey, OK. take all the millions of jobs you'd lose without your biggest (by far) trading partner and go jump in the (Great Salt) Lake.

    Charlie - appreciate the appreciation, but where I and 2/3 of Canada's Jews live in Ontario, there is NO public funding of our schools, and in fact the current government has reached into our pockets and stolen, 10 months after it was budgeted by the previous government, thousands of dollars in tax credits for every Jewish family sending kids to Jewish schools.

    One thing you could all appreciate is the strong support of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Canada's Conservative government for the Jewish community, the Jewish people around the world, and the State of Israel.

    It is. If Israel did not have religious issues, it would be very hard for me to justify not going.

    It seems to me that we lost our chance to make Canada a part of the U.S. during the Revolutionary War.

    PBT: War of 1812.

    yichusdik: It is spelled "lackluster" and "flavorless".

    stefin, and the Revolutionary War. The War of 1812 was not really to liberate Canada, but to attack the UK, in 1776, it was indeed meant to liberate Canada from the UK.

    American craft beers are amazing!

    Popa, define "religious issues"-- obviously the government has its problems just like any government, but there are lots of good neighborhoods for frum people to live in E"Y. What, specifically, makes America more appealing?

    Squeak, we don't have to return, the Queen is still our Head of State.

    Apparently I've just heard that our Head of State has a new great grandchild.

    He won't be very interested in American beer either, when he's old enough to drink.

    Yes. Her first great-grandson (and third great-grandchild overall).
