    Awesome video. Many of the things they mention really apply to Norway too, though. Free health care, lots of beautiful nature, very strict gun laws and many wild animals. We may not have two official spoken languages, but with a population of only 5 million, we still have two written languages. : )

    Your canoe paddle only counts if you paid for it with toonies and loonies ;-)

    It’s OK, Sarah, you can have honorary Canadian status anytime you want it :-)

    The video IS awesome—even more so when you consider that the people who made it, Andrew Gunadie and Julia Bentley, wanting to do something special for Canada Day, sat down together on a Sunday night and wrote the song, recorded it that night, then took Andrew’s tripod out to the London Ontario canoe club the next day and, without anyone else helping them, filmed the whole thing. In one day. By themselves. I’m in awe, anyway…

    *Sigh*  I’m ready for another trip to Quebec now.  Or maybe Vancouver.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I *had* to send that to my friend in Vancouver. And maybe I’ll go up and live with her, too. She’s got some amazing views.

    Awesome video!!

    LOL! love it. Although, do I have to give back my citizenship since I’ve been trying to get RID of my canoe?  Wait! That solves the problem Sarah, you can have it then you’re good.

    LOL! This is just as good as the Jane Austen Fight Club video. Imagine if they’d combine the two.

    It’s frikkin chilly up here right now folks….19 degrees! And I honestly did buy a toque this week. It has this awesome 70s vibe going on, brown with orange and yellow stripes….what??! There’s NOTHING unnatural about buying a toque in August. (And don’t even get me started if you don’t know what a toque is….)

    LOL, I cleaned out the closet the other day and sorted the tuques, scarves, and gloves. I’m blaming the fact I’m doing a whole house purge rather than the fact the air changed August 1st. :)

    I upset someone the other day at a party. He said “That dang Obama, with his health care reform, he’s trying to turn us into Canada.” I responded “I wish!” and he sort of growled and walked away.

    Well, I better go see if my Mountie wants to act out a Jennifer Cruise scenario.  Without spurs.

    spamword: showed67 ( I don’t want to touch that with a canoe paddle)

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed this music video!  Thanks for pointing it out. I used to live in Michigan just 1 hour away from the Canadian border and so Canada has always been near to my heart. I think it’s a great country.
