@Ceili,
Now Canada would be a good country to live in because they're happy with what they have. Canada does not seem to feel the need to expand as much or as fast as other countries such as China which is becoming to powerful. Soon the US and UK etc will be threatened greatly by the likes of China.

We don't need to expand, we are the 2nd largest country with a relatively small population, but no, we've never been invaders.

@Ceili,
Exactly, which is why it is a nice country. The population density of Canada is nothing to that of the UK, which is why it would be good to live there. More land, and the people have more respect for the land etc

@MatthewB7621,
Aren't you expressing your aggresive urges? China has not invaded any country in history. It is England the number one invader.

You are ignorant of history. Tibet has been part of China since Kublai Khan. The Hapsburg were in poer in Austria then. Canada was stolen from aboriginals.

@talk72000,
Well tell that to them then, they seem to think that they've been appropriated, and considering they've had their own culture and language, I'll defer to their assessment.
As for Canada, I think you could say the same about the whole of the americas, oz, nz....

I said I was from Boston. I am guessing from this that you don't know very much about Boston (or about many similar American cities).

Every day on the bus I hear Spanish, Portuguese and Haitian Creole. It is not at all unusual to see people in head scarves in the grocery store or on the street.

This is great!

There is a nightclub I like to go to dance salsa where Spanish and English are spoken interchangeably. It is a mixed crowd where everyone has a great time. In Allston, there are incredible Brazilian and Colombian and Haitian restaurants. My kids have papusas and conch and all kinds of culinary delights that I didn't get growing up in a small town.

I have a friends who are Lebanese Muslims. There is large Armenian community nearby and there is a growing Indian community. I am particularly fond of Dosas.

I am sorry. I don't understand what your problem is.


In my opinion, the difference between the U.S.A. and many other countries is that the U.S. tries to be "inclusive." Historically, and regardless of the EU, many countries are "exclusive," in my opinion. In other words, the concept of "outsider" exists; in the U.S. there are no "outsiders," since all foreigners are believed to be on a learning curve to become Americanized, either them or their children. That I believe is the "story" we promulgate. The U.S. has assimilated generations of immigrants. No reason to believe it will not continue.

And, as a native New Yorker, I like the diversity. I think it is nice that so many different people, from so many different places, wanted a better life in the U.S. And, I believe their children will be good citizens, and make the country a better place. That might be the secret to the success of the U.S.

@Ceili,
The Dalai Lama is a fake Buddhist. Buddha gave up a kingdom while the Dalai Lama wants a kingdom. The Tibetan Buddhism is an abberation of Buddhism. It shows the ignorance of Albertans who promote the oil sands as environmentally safe.

I was born here. I live in the only riding that consistently votes against the ruling party. Plus I like it here. My friends and family live here and we make the big bucks, my husband works for the oil industry.

Plus, there's a ton of culture here, folk fest and the like, it's safe, no earthquakes, no poisonous bugs, no eastern assholes, I like wide open spaces, no provincial sales tax, lowest personal income taxes in Canada, no healthcare premiums, it's beautiful, clean air.... I could go on, but I think you get the picture, it's pretty much perfect. lol
