Top Ten Things Americans Have That Canadians WantDon't get me wrong, I am a proud Canadian. Always have been. But, there are a few things that America has that we're a little jealous of, if we're being honest here. Of course, we have free health care. Let's not forget about that, now.
The Top Ten
Our rates are ridiculous when compared to what Americans pay. The services offered are far inferior, also. - BKAllmighty
Walk into ANY section of any American grocery store and, if you're familiar with the selection in Canadian supermarkets, you'll be shocked at how much more there is to choose from. - BKAllmighty
Grocery is monopolized in Canada thanks to our government protecting their friends
Everything is cheaper. Everything. It makes me want to cry, sometimes. - BKAllmighty
Well, we don't have free healthcare. - keycha1n
In many ways, neither do we. "Free" health care is provided through us paying taxes. The amounts we pay, annually, in some ways cost us more money than private health insurance does in the U.S. and ours doesn't include a lot of things. Prescription drugs, dental care, long-term care, and prescription glasses are all separate. So we still end up paying a fair bit. - BKAllmighty
Most Canadians don't really know what's going on with the government. It's the truth. It's mainly because we have no idea how it works. - BKAllmighty
I think there is actually a tropical region in British Columbia due to a volcano
You guys have Hawaii. We have Prince Edward Island. Hardly everybody's choice for a destination. - BKAllmighty
This is mainly concerning the NHL. Quebec City deserves their team back, Toronto COULD use a second team, and Hamilton is always a possibility for expansion. Look at how well it worked when Winnipeg got their team back. It could happen again, people! - BKAllmighty
Hamilton would be a great candidate for an NHL team. But Toronto would want one too. - PetSounds
Both countries are very diverse and have done a lot to help people and other countries, but it all boils down to some key lifestyle differences. For a start, Canada has free healthcare and less racial bias. - PositronWildhawk
Canada really fades into the woodwork next to America. You guys are just too cool and tend to keep to yourselves. Unlike us. Mind you, if you did get the same recognition, it's the good along with lots of bad. - keycha1n
The world, in general, respects America for its military, government, and overall way of life. Canada, on the other hand, is just a bunch of overly-apologetic French lumberjacks. Not exactly the look we were going for. - BKAllmighty
The U.S. is most known for obesity.
The USA having 49 states? I think 50 is a much better number, no?
Just give it to us. Please?
Yet America doesn't HAVE a culture. We are a melting pot of different backgrounds, so there's nothing I would really consider "American" besides our flag-waving and maybe our original fast-food chains. - keycha1n
This one might get me in a bit of trouble. But it's pretty much true. We hijack so much of culture off of the U.S. and we mistake it for our own. This is not the case all the time, but it is a frequent occurrence. - BKAllmighty
Canadian-produced television is so inferior. So inferior. And our government enforces that a certain percentage of what is broadcasted on television is Canadian-based entertainment. It stinks. - BKAllmighty
I'm Canadian and I HATE Canadian television
