Crazy in Debt, eh?

Before Canadians get too proud, here’s a curious chart:

Remember Harper and his team who did understand the economy?

Good times…

  1. I am simply proud of being Canadian without any reference to our American neighbours. The slander that most Canadians base their patriotism on “not being American” is without first hand experience with Canadians. It is true that we have our share of Anti-Americans, too many in my opinion. However most people expressing that ugly sentiment are generally engaging in self serving virtue signalling.

    When the border is reopened GSW, come here and judge for yourself. You will find that most of us are gracious and welcoming when it comes to our neighbours, even when they display evident ignorance.

    In my career I worked in every region of Canada and have seen what kind of country I live in.

    1. Omigosh!

      I’m Canadian, known here as a Canadian, and was poking gentle fun at one of our most enduring (but least endearing) national characteristics – the certainty that we are morally superior to our American cousins (and we love them none the less for it.)

      1. “one of our most enduring (but least endearing) national characteristics ”

        For me the most enduring and least endearing national characteristic of Canadians is the inevitable “Did you know s/he’s Candian?” anytime a celebrity from Canada shows up in the media…

        1. “anytime a celebrity from Canada”

          Yup. I have a theory about that but it’s not very popular with English-speaking Canadians because it involves placing them as a regional culture within the wider American culture like the South, the mid-West, the Left Coast, New England etc. (Since we are completely distinct through being morally superior… etc. you can appreciate why this theory, which I will not bore you with by offering a longer exposition of its merits, might not be that well received.)

          Fun fact about Canada and English-speaking Canadians – until the late 19th century, schoolchildren were given a day off in at least some parts of Upper Canada to celebrate the burning and sacking of Washington by our side in the War of 1812 .
