Even though Canada is the United States' largest trading partner and just happens to be our neighbor to the north - Americans don't seem to know anything about the country, myself included until about three years ago when I married a wonderful Canadian and moved to the red and white maple leafed country. We take Canada for granted, a peaceful and democratic neighbor that we make a lot of fun of - eh!
Since I'm a relative newbie here - I've decided to try to add a posting every so often of news relating to Canada as part of learning about where I live and to try to expose Americans to our good friends with similar values. Canada is truly an important partner to the US - especially when they are trying to help us with our energy needs (ie. the Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta) when they could very easily ship to any other part of the world. We need to nurture this relationship rather than throw their good-will gestures back in their faces.
