Re the initial poster, Canada and the US are vast places.
My irish grandmother and her family arrived and lived in Ontario, and as a kid (I'm now old), I visited the family there. My dad worked there on some assignments, he and my mother living in Ottawa for a while, before I was born. I remember her coat from when she was there, loved it - sort of beige wool tweedy, quite heavy. What happened to it, I don't remember, probably a giveaway when we moved to LA.
I've a2kers I love who are Canadian, across the continent.
Alternately, I know really good Americans, and I'll add Mexicans to that. Also, a world of others.
Our poster needs to catch on that people vary,
I think our poster is a judgmental fool.
