hahahahaAnd yet ... nationally, overall crime in Canada has been declining since 1991. Violent crimes fell 13 percent in 2002. Of course, there are still crimes committed with guns -- brought in from the United States, which has become the major illegal weapons supplier for all of North America -- but my theory is that the surge in pot-smoking has rendered most criminals too relaxed to commit violent crimes. They're probably more focused on shoplifting boxes of Ho-Hos from convenience stores.
That's a funny article.. thanks for sharing, Jeroen..
What a stupid bitch.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely
Like teenagers, we fiercely idolize individual freedom but really demand that everyone be the same. But the Canadians seem more adult -- more secure. They aren't afraid of foreigners. They aren't afraid of homosexuality. Most of all, they're not afraid of each other.
I wonder if America will ever be that cool.
we don't sell ho ho's in Canada.

I like that one.But if we are the rugged individualists, why do we spend so much of our time trying to get everyone to march in lockstep? And if Canadians are so reserved and moderate, why are they so progressive about letting people do what they want to?
An interesting read. She comes accross a little ignorant herself to be writing about these topics, but she has some good concluding points!
Have you all seen "Bowling for Columbine"? Great documentary movie about Americans and their gun fascinations, with good plugs for Canada. :-)
What do you mean what do I mean?

Why don't you read the article again, exercise that gray matter of yours, and make some more intelligent remarks next time.it was a good read indeed....i doubt she ever foresaw a canadian getting a hold of that article...but then , so what if we did? we're the most appathetic, tolerant country in the world......so tolerant we have to have stronger beer and pot just to see a difference.
