Are you guys really taking the time to make the case which country is better? The only time Canada was an attractive alternative to the US was to dodge the draft.
Canadian families will sell their souls to get their kid into a US college, who in the US even considers attending a Canadian school?
If Canada was so attractive we would have taken it centuries ago. Our forefathers drew a line at the 49th parallel and decided everything north was unwanted.
Harsh? Perhaps, but its fun to break chops none the less. The lacrosse team shared part of a dorm with the hockey team and I am still in touch with a few great guys who are from Canada (now in NYC and Boston!!!)
