Pick a side!

  • Canada is basically a vast wasteland filled with igloos, snowballs and hockey players.  This list doesn’t prove anything.  This country which is like the wild west run by snow and ice eating people travelling in canoes or by toboggan should be a world heritage site for how odd it is…That’s PureBS!!


  • Canada is the best! They are a kind and peaceful toque wearing people who apologize even when they do nothing wrong.  They talk funny and entertain us all with their unnecessary use of words like pop, chesterfield, caesar, and their water is from a tap (not faucet), and of course finishing every sentence with the word “eh”!

I’ve got you started here:
