    OK, not really "vs" (though if Charlitos and DancerJack want to naked oil wrestle to decide it I, for one, will not try and stop them)

    Can those of you who know the two countries tell me what the differences between them are?

    In the US people say 'slap-shot' when talking hockey.

    In Canada it's something a date will suggest...icon_lol.gif

    Differences:

    USA has a President who lives in a White House
    Canada has a Prime Minister who lives in an igloo icon_smile.gif

    (yes, I'm perpetuating the stereotype) hehe

    We Canadians prefer to travel by dogsled whenever possible, except during the two weeks of summer we have in November icon_biggrin.gif

    Kidding.

    Let's see, a real difference. If you go to any fast food chain, and even many restaurants, a "large" size beverage in Canada is the equivalent of a "medium" in the US.

    When you're overseas, it's ok to ask an American if he's Canadian, but it's never acceptable to ask a Canadian if he's American. icon_lol.gif

    'Peace, order and good government'

    'Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness'


    seems to pretty much sum up the strengths (and weaknesses) of both our countries

    When I travel to other countries, it makes me really appreciate that I live in Canada where health care is public and gay marriage is completely legal across this country. icon_biggrin.gif

    It seems like Canada is more liberal, socialistic society than the United States.

    Im guessing because so much of the Canadian population, I would think, lives in urban areas, and thus is more exposed to diversity and thus becomes more accepting.

    Also, it would be interesting to find out if Canada has the Scotch-Irish element we have here in rural areas. Scotland became Calvinist and, if I'm not mistaken, that tends to lead conservative, so that would explain why so many of rural southerns are conservative...but Canada does have Catholic Quebec...

    And supposedly immigrants in Canada are encouraged to retain their culture more than in the United States.

    I know that is not much of an answer, but from what I know, those are some differences which immediately come to mind.


    --Canadian Realjockers (or Les Realjockers Canadianes, lol)--what's your take on this.

    I think you wouldn´t have trouble finding people who would let you practice with them.
