    Because we do that.  We're basically just Americans only with fewer guns, more education and better health care coverage.  And maybe cleaner air and less crime, but let's not get too wrapped up in the circumstantial stuff.  

    Canada has much more land than the USA, but only 10% of the population.  And 90% of that population lives within a few hours' drive of the American border, so it's pretty simple math.  

    It's also simple math that the USA is easily one of the most influential countries on the planet.  How many countries invented music that is popular all around the world?  How many countries invented the industrial revolution?  How many countries invented free market capitalism?  How many countries invented fast food, the music video, the internet and the 24-hour drive-thru?

    Because it makes us feel good and yet allows us to lower our standards.  Seriously, we need to stop.  Compare Canada to Canada or Canada to the world.

    Examples:  Canadian Murder rate.  Look, it's so much lower than the USA.  So we are fine?  No it should be better.

    Canadian Gun Crime.  Look, it's so much lower than the USA.  So we are fine? No it should be better.

    Canadian Health Care.  So much better than the USA.  So we are fine? No it should be better.

    Canada's population is about 10% of the USA's population and 90% of Canadians live close to the border so it is effectively impossible to avoid influence.

    They are our nearest neighbours, but, being about 10  times more populated, we are inundated with their media, so, they are a huge influence on our culture.  Canadians mostly identify ourselves in how we are not American.  Internationally, many confuse us with Americans.

    Because they are so similar geographically and it is easy to compare to things that are close to you
