O Canada!!

To all my Canadian friends (and Canada-philes like me), Happy Canada Day!

In my opinion, it's a darn shame we Americans know so little about, and seem to pay so little attention to, our northern neighbors. Canada is our largest trading partner and is one of our strongest allies, yet we are constantly displaying our ignorance of this fine nation. As proof, just ask any American (strangers on the street is always fun) which nation supplies us with the largest amount of foreign oil. Odds are good you'll get a reply naming a country in the Middle East - but that would be incorrect! The answer? Why, Canada, of course!
