What I like about Canada....

I like the people and have been to British Columbia and Alberta. Canada seems to be more cleaner than the states and seems to welcome visitors whereas returning to the states puts you under a microscope. Everyone I meet there always smile and say hello. The food, particularly the fresh vegetables and fruit in and around Osoyoos is exceptional. I really enjoy the fresh bread and love the natural cookies found there. Called Natures Oven, they taste so fresh, I returned with several packages of Five Grain and Oatmeal raisin. Made in Kelowna, BC they are one of my favorites. It is always interesting to listen to the Canadian news as sometimes I feel US news is censored or somewhat controlled by a small group of influential people. Anyway, just wanted to say, thank you to our northern neighbors, they seem to not screw up as often as we seem to do below the border.

Jim - Paul and I are in total agreement with you and head up to BC as often as we can! We like to watch the news while we are there to get a broader and more in depth perspective. Luckily we can get BBC news here in Spokane.

Just spent a week in Canada fishing. The fishing as well as the Canadian people were great .
It was nice to be able to leave your fishing gear in the boat and have it still there the next morning. Canadians seem to have a calmer, safer ,more relaxed way of life. I find myself having much more in common with our neighbors to the north than many of our US states.

Canada

In the 70's we bought a class C from a couple that were about to retire from the SFO area and wanted to travel. They owned the class C for a few months and made one trip to BC in it and changed their minds, sold me the RV and were going to just move to BC. I was flying in and out of Canada at that time and it didn't occur to me to even question their logic. We would like to visit more often but we happen to live too far away but we sure don't hesitate to represent one of their products with the big red leaf on the tire cover.

I don't think it's much safer on a per capita basis, but it does seem less stressed and hurried.

No matter where you live, there's a tendency to idealize life in another country. It's easy to do that with Canada -- with its friendly people and amazing geography.

There are some significant differences, politically, socially, culturally. But at the end of the day the thing you realize is people have far more in common than they have differences. No matter where you roam, it enriches you to learn about the places, people, culture and history of the place.

I've been in all 50 states, and at last count, 49 foreign countries. There are some I wish I could forget, but Canada isn't one of them. Canadians have much to be proud of.
