@nat well they are right about being grateful, I still remember a slightly creepy story about a Canadian Jeep having crashed in the water in the war, and when the weather is bad they said you could still see the headlights. Also NL still sends tullips to Canada every year as a thank you I believe
These days it's probably a good idea to say you're Canadian so we know you're not an American because of recent politics
@nat a country can do little wrong when they actually helped our queen give birth to an actual Dutch princess in a hospital in Canada without making the baby a Canadian https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Margriet_of_the_Netherlands
Also in school I don't remember learning a lot about Canada. Heard about the native Americans being killed but not about the First Nation people for example. So they might indeed be really good at covering stuff up
@AaronTheIssueGuy everyone knows the internet is made by Americans, for Americans and there are only Americans here that speak American and of course the entire internet is interested and therefore overflowing with american news and politics
@AaronTheIssueGuy like when they say 'colour' for some stupid reason, where did the u come from, I thought this was America™
