    You like the Americans a little because they don't want Quebec either.
    Contests run by anyone other than the government have "skill-testing questions" that winners must answer correctly before they can claim a prize. Canadian lottery winnings are non-taxable!

    It's real milk. They briefly had it around here when I was growing up.

    I've had Labatt Blue, not too bad. But i was already drunk when i tried it.
    It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    Milk in a bag is definitely a Canadian thing.

    What scares me is I actually know some of those.

    You brag to Americans that: , Jim Carrey, Mike Meyers, Tom Green, and many more are Canadians.
    You can add Celine Dion to that list. Whats Ironic about that is she sings a great "God Bless America".


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
