I've lived virtually my entire adult life in South Louisiana, but was born & raised very near the US/Canada border. Life in a region with the heaviest snowfall east of the Rockies requires patience, and a sense of humor. Canadians have their own way of looking at things.
The two countries are very similar, but different. We speak the same language...sort of.

The rest of the world calls soccer "football." Not the US & Canada. We invented our own game of football. Canadians play it on a bigger field, with more guys, and rules that allow total chaos. It's fun to watch, but NFL football is better. They invented a fast paced, exciting game called Hockey. It's played all over the world, but Canadians still do it best. Canada's monetary system, like our own, is based on a unit called the dollar. Canadian money is legal tender in the US, but our dollars are worth more. So, Who's got it better?
