Quality land resources...frozen.
Public healthcare...as long as you don't die waiting in line.
Elected government system...not including the fact that your true leader is in England. They tried that with us. We smoked 'em.
More stable and secure banking system...Our banking system is so stable and secure, catastrophies don't even crash it.
More affordable secondary education...is nice but if you want more education, you have to pay for it big time here. The good news is that people do. Because they can. Because they make enough money. Of course, higher quality education costs more also. Your lower end colleges and universites are equivalent to a GED here in Mass.
The metric system? You ran out of things that are great about Canada that quickly? That's a stretch. Like a three foot stretch. Do you know how long that is?
Honestly, all barbs aside, everyone knows (or should know) that I love Canada. Outside of the US, it's my favorite place on Earth. I've traveled the world and have not found anywhere I like more. I'd love to live in Montreal or Ottawa. And I would (one more barb) but the jobs up there don't pay enough and the money that is made is taxed to high heaven in order to afford a ridiculous health care system.
