what's the big mystery? We both live in North America. We're identical with the exception of circumstances that affect our perspective. If Canada was the 330 mill and US was the 38 mill, the roles would reverse. I'm under no illusion about that. Comprehending our differences is pretty easy, so long as I'm not nurturing the delusion that some how Canadians are naturally smarter, funnier and more open to international perspective. Its all a smoke screen of nationalist construct. Fundamentally we share the same limitations of perspective as a result of our socioeconomic standing in the world. I can project accurately what kinds of distinctions exist between us just based on the easy math of our circumstances and their effects.
Am I oversimplifying you think?
