Happy Canada Day!

Is Canadaphile a real word? If it is, I am one. I like to acknowledge the wonderfulness of the country to our north (unless you live in Alaska). I could probably write an ode to why I like Canada and so many Canadians, but I'm having a bit of bloggers block these days.

But I will mention two great things about Canada.

1) Interrobang We found each other on the Internets and she embodies so many wonderful values and intelligent view points that I'm proud to call her my "Canadian friend" (as well as just my friend.)

2) Canada's laws are not the same as America's laws. They are their OWN country, and they don't just follow the United State's lead on everything! Thank goodness for that! I know that some people think that Canadians are just "Americans who end sentences with an 'eh" but they are not.

As this Bush administration has proceeded to discard centuries of legal precedence and create a class of people that have no rights, I'm grateful that Canada stands on its own. They are staying truer to the ideals of America's founding fathers than we are.

How did Robin Williams put it?

I pledge allegiance
to the flag of the United States of America
and to the republic
for which it stands
one nation
under Canada
with liberty and
justice for all.

Ha! Hadn't heard that version before, love it.

Count me in as another Canadaphile...

I think it was FDL that had an interesting piece on the Canadian Supreme Court a few weeks back. I sure would rather have them than our lot...
