I think part of it is because most of the forums etc I visist have a higher majority of Americans, I mean California has a higher population then Canada :P

I mean this in the nicest way possible but most Canadians are fairly well informed of atleast the basics in the states but I can't exactly say its the other way around. I remember trying to book something in the states (Can't exactly remember, may have been tickets to a show in vegas or a hotel in seattle or something) and telling them we were coming from vancouver and they refused to believe there was a Vancouver other then Vancouver WA and we are the 3rd biggest city in Canada.

You would be surprised at the amount of people who just don't know where Vancouver is.

Most of the media in Canada comes directly from the US. They had to make a requirement for a certain percentage of Canadian content a while ago.

Canadian content - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have a talent for spotting Canadian shows on TV after only a few seconds of watching. Its just... different.

I blame Colbert for my knowledge of US politics being better than my Canadian or Canadien politics.

Three cheers to Harper and his passive aggressive academic economist personality, he simply didn't piss off the Quebecois, and they rewarded him handsomely for it by voting out BQ and voting in NDP.

What will be interesting is the Albertan and Quebecois separatists arguing over parallel decentralisation going forward from here, from opposite sides of the aisle...

Free Arcadia!

at least you can finally get rid of the long gun registry once and for all?

Someone give Stockwell Day a sovereign coffee mug in the sanitarium... :P

Well more than 20% of our population speaks French as their preferred language. I really think all provinces ought to make learning French mandatory so we achieve true bilingualism, like New Brunswick.

EDIT: Quebec should make learning English mandatory as well.

Learning French isn't mandatory in other provinces? I'm pretty sure it is in Ontario. I even went to a French immersion elementary school. But, I still can't follow politics in French, they're confusing enough in English.

I thought that French was mandatory only in certain areas?

People in New Brunswick often speak Frenglish, from my experience.


For those who have a basic french understanding, listen to that, its quite fun! :

Here in BC where i went to school we had to take French from grade 6-8 after. (after that it was optional)

Not sure if that was all of BC or certain school districts.
