The reality is that Canada doesn’t deal with many of the problems which we face in the United States precisely because it’s a very different and significantly smaller country. You can talk about their single-payer, socialized healthcare program all you like, but the fact is that it’s much easier to run such a system when you have far fewer potential clients. Canada’s population is only 35 million, which doesn’t even add up to the number we have just in California. Similarly, we constantly hear about how the tolerant and progressive Canadians don’t deal with the same problems of racism as we do in the United States. It’s not that impressive of a trick when you consider that Canada is almost entirely white (over 80% of the population is Caucasian including 4% aboriginal) , with less than 3% of their population being black and barely 1% Latin American. Not exactly a picture of diversity there.
But they have great fishing. It's a great country for fish. Let's not forget that.
