"In history class, in seventh grade (or as we like to say in Canada, grade seven) we learned the story of the American Revolution — from the British perspective. Turns out you were all a bunch of ungrateful tax cheats. And you weren’t very nice to the Loyalists. What I miss most about Canada is getting the truth about the United States."
— MALCOLM GLADWELL, a staff writer for The New Yorker and the author, most recently, of “Outliers: The Story of Success”

Stolen from the Noo Yawk Times article "Our True North" the collected remembrances of 11 Canadians living south of the border, as suggested by the esteemed mjs

Yeah, but you gave it the best title.

(BTW, I'm sitting here watching a 'Due South' marathon on CMT - how's THAT for celebrating Canada Day?)

Sweet! Now if they follow it up with a midnight showing of "Strange Brew" you'll know you've hit the jackpot.

Cangrats and condolances to all my Canadian friends.

I congratulate all those who made it to a real life in civilization (USA , eh!)

And condolances to those who didn't realize what direction California was in and ended up still on the periphery, but this time in Japan.

Suck it up and find something red to hug.
